A custom scaling engine helps you scale formulas up and down using a scaling factor, target weight or target concentration.
View a fragrance pyramid split into 5 levels of substantivity. Get a visual raw material category breakdown for each formula.
Keep track of different raw materials' dilutions and change dilutions in formulas using the existing solvent.
Keep your raw materials organised with a collection of cards to store information. Keep track of basic information such as supplier, IFRA limits and cost per gram. Record purchase dates for stock and making dilutions to act as a reminder to help avoid raw materials going off. A table summarising concentration in formulas serves to quickly remind you which usage levels you found the most success with.
"As a soap maker who recently started dabbling in perfumery, I can say that Formulair has made my transition from soap to creating my own perfumes totally seamless. The way you can create an encyclopedia of all your raw materials, add your own unique blends to other formulas, and calculate dilutions in the snap of a finger… I cannot imagine creating a fragrance without it."
Organise your formulas into custom categories and sketch out new ones with ease. Simply search your raw materials library and set a weight in grams up to 3 decimal places. Mark formula entries as too strong or weak. Change the dilution of a formula entry or swap out a raw material as you please. Formulair makes all of this quick and easy.
"Perfumers say: 'Write down EVERYTHING!' So, I did. Tons of notes. Chaotic! Then I moved to Excel like so many others. Better! But a spreadsheet is neither a database nor a workflow system. I spent as much time keeping track of my growing collection of materials, dealing with calculation errors, trying to make fancy LOOKUP functions etc. as I did, being creative. But then I discovered Formulair. The workflow is so smooth; I can’t even begin to describe it. How the Formulation section is linked to the Raw Materials section is ingenious. No, I’m not related to the producers of Formulair. I am just truly impressed. I am in full control without effort. I don’t think about it – I just create. No clutter, no distractions but any information can be pulled up by a tap of my finger. This is honestly the best exploitation of the iOS architecture, I have seen."
Designed from the ground up for apprentice and self-taught perfumers. As easy as using a pen and paper but allows you to make connections between raw materials and formulas which a traditional notebook can't provide.
Your data is secured by Apple in a private iCloud container.
A rich interface supports light and dark mode. Even the raw materials colour palette adapts dynamically.
Featuring a carefully designed colour palette, allowing you to assign colours to fully capture the essence your raw materials.
Raw material cards include a listing of every formula it's used in from strongest to weakest, showing any flags you set for too strong or weak.
Export formulas to pdf allowing you to print and share, markdown to open in note taking software, or tsv (tab-separated value) files, to load into spreadsheet software.
Includes a setting to scramble your raw material usage table, hiding sensitive formula information.
This app is a true gem. It has all the details that I tried to squeeze into messy spreadsheets, and displays everything beautifully and connects everything together in a much more inspiring way than static notesbooks or stuffy spreadsheets. It helps with the calculations as well, which I really like, so I don't have to sit there with a calculator. Truly a well made app. 10/10 would definitely recommend to any perfumer.afalkvidd (App Store Switzerland)
He has created a very useable, effective app for perfumers. A personalised inventory with important data fields, a formula chart that can be configured any way you need to, with dultions, scaling. He has created a app for pennies, that rivals the thousands of dollars app. It is quite manual which I prefer. It does not come loaded with IFRA data or GC data, but all of that can be added as desired. and it is that data that really what you pay for in the expensive professional softwares.John Rocket (App Store Canada)
If you love spreadsheets like me, letting go of control can feel weird. How can I be sure all my relevant info is available? How are the calculations done? How are updates? Well, all are much, much better than any spreadsheet I set up. The data hoarder in me is happy to add tons of notes to materials. The math nerd loves the clever ways formulas are calibrated. I don't know how the design snob ever felt comfortable with spreadsheets tbh. This app is gorgeous. Can you imagine if Apple made Contacts run this smoothly? Also, my weighing station doesn't have room for my laptop. With Formulair, I just use my phone to get the formulas. I update the Mac later. It's better than the best I could imagine. Documentation is also excellent, both on the dev's site and Sam Macer's YouTube channel. Easiest IAP I ever bought.I Was All Like (App Store Canada)
It seems as though every function has been deliberately and meticulously thought out. Easy to use and a very powerful tool for DIY perfumers!!joey.smells (App Store USA)
