How does this work?

We created a tailoring algorithm that uses your input from the Quiz to personalise your perfect formula. Although this may sound like nonsense, it actually is pure mathematics and it does works. With our background in econometrics, we developed an algorithm (machine learning model) that has been trained on hundreds of guys. We found some solid connections between their Quiz answers and the perfumes that they preferred. We are using those connections to tailor a new, unique formula specially for you.

How do I know it will be good?

By skipping the middlemen, we are able to invest up to 4 times as much on perfume ingredients than mainstream brands. This way, your product will be of the highest possible quality. Besides, our algorithm has proven to be extremely accurate. We are very confident that you will love your formula. If you are not fully satisfied, you can return it free of charge.

Can I gift a fragrance of House of Formulas?
