It is always a pleasure to go to the perfume factory. They have the most amazing smells which they put into oils, soaps and lotions. This is a must when visiting raro.

There was no visible tours or information re the factory and there was no information available to take home for the gifts. The items were lovely and fragrant and high quality with reasonable prices however we would not have visited there again.

this is a lovely place to visit. They have some wonderful things to buy and at very good prices. The lady was so lovely and helpful. She saw my fan was broken so she offered to fix it and glue the shells back down. We bought most of our gifts for family and friends from there as was lovely.
