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!

This is a great little shop to visit for some very cool souvenirs and delicious fudge. We got lots of both from here and visited a few times. Located right next to the bus terminal in town. If you spend $80 at IDCK down the road you get a voucher for free fudge. Yum!

You can find lots of souvenirs at Perfumes of Rarotonga. Located at Cooks Corner Avarua (just off the main road) it's easy to find and the staff are very helpful. Coconut oil products, soaps, liqueurs, candles, perfumes, little gifts and knick knacks. And of course fudge. Excellent fudge. The kind that sticks to the roof of your mouth and the... More

I stumbled across this delightful shop while wandering around Avarua on a wet day. This little shop is packed with interesting gifts and the fudge was divine. They encourage you to taste before you buy which is certainly good for the taste buds. The staff were delightful and happy to talk about their lives in the Cook Islands. This is... More

The staff were very friendly and I bought a lovely daisy perfume and coconut soaps. Everything in Cook Islands seem expensive so in comparison the Perfumes of Rarotonga was very reasonably priced.

There are two of these shops on the island. They make their own products.I would have liked some more variety in their products as it seemed limited. Nice place to visit. Not a big shop.Their other place was in Avarua by the main bus stop.

Thank you for visiting us and your comments. We would love to have more variety but we do have variety between the factory and the shop, for example, the shop in Avarua town also includes a Fudge Factory and ice cream making. Look forward to seeing you again soon. More

On my 4th visit I again purchased fragrance to bring home, The tiare maori oil is so beautiful. I have been buying it for myself and friends since meeting Nane at the Perfume Factory in 2010. A must when you are visiting.
