Certification Costs

Additional Costs: The  additional “specific perfume” certification fees are primarily allocated to cover the expertise of the “nose” who certifies the products, as well as the printing of any required certificates. This fee is payable to all applicants in the specific perfume category, however NPA – Graduates may submit their finals for free “specific perfume” certification. 

Yearly Business Licensing Fee: A small administrative fee is paid to the Natural Perfume Academy (NPA) for the use of the NPA logo on products or websites. The fee structure is based on the number of products to be certified, the nature of the business, and the business’s turnover. Fees are payable yearly or bi-yearly. Any fee increases will be minimal and only to cover rising costs, ensuring affordability. We understand the financial commitment involved in incorporating logos on marketing materials and packaging.
