Exporting perfumes to Asia/Japan


Hi I am looking to export hand made perfumes I make to Asia/Japan. I am wanting to sell trade but I am thinking that getting the products there may be tricky due to it being flammable also are trade shows worth while.
Thank you.



Exporting would not be an issue so long as you have the right documentation and freight forwarder.

If you want I can go through this with you if you wish to drop me a call or send me an email I can give you the info you need to make a decision.

Shipping is certainly not impossible, but will definitely be more expensive with perfumes being classed as dangerous goods. You will also incur costs for special packaging and the packing company/forwarder raising the DGN (dangerous goods note).


Hi Belinda,

I noticed you already submitted a similar question through Export to Japan, thank you! One of our trade advisers from UK Trade & Investment Japan will be in touch with you soon to follow up.

Best regards,
