Rarotonga is so lucky to be surrounded by the most beautiful flowers in the world. The scents, starting at sunrise, and never ending have to be smelt to be believed. We make here the most delicate of perfumes, complimentary body cosmetics, candles. Finally our local fruit liqueurs bring flavor as well as scents to the palate.Our Factory in Panama welcomes you and shows you how our various products are made, whilst in the Cook's Corner we have our famous Fudge Factory! Try an ice cream with chocolate fudge sauce!

They offered us a sample or 2of fudge....very yummy, and were not at all pushy . This is right at the main bus stop... More

The owner of Manuia Beach Resort took me to this little shop off the main road, hidden away. There is another store in town, but this location is close to the airport. Lots of yummy lotions and potions in island fragrances such as coconut (nu), gardenia, and jasmine. In addition, there are candles, soaps, and other wonderfully scented items to... More

The little shop right next to the main start/stopping point for the clockwise and anti-clockwise buses. They sell perfumes, lotions, creams, souvenirs as well as lovely ice creams and locally produced fudge. Samples are available to try before you buy. Just the thing before getting on you bus back to your accommodation.

Visited the store and found the wonderful sweet smelling frangipani mist, disappointing I got the last bottle and would have liked more. Also enjoyed some delicious fudge
