Best selling fragrances across categories are Peony & Olive Leaf, Rice Flower and Lavender. The gift sets and our linen + air mists are also strong sellers.

You can add display testers directly to your cart, they are listed as a product variant in a drop-down menu on each product page. Maximum of ONE display tester per SKU per order. We do not sell display testers without the product. 


Q: Can we visit you at a trade show?

A: We exhibit twice a year at the Show T.O. Toronto. If you are an existing retailer or have requested wholesale information from us, you will receive an invitation to these events with showroom information. Our show schedule is here.


Q: Can I have exclusivity in my area/zip code/city/state?

A: We do not ever grant specific exclusivity, but we are very respectful of our retailers and we will always be sensitive to not opening accounts too close together. If ever we are unsure, we will always check in with you.


Q: Are Dot & Lil products natural?

A: All of our base formulas are natural. We choose to use both natural fragrances (essential oils) and synthetic fragrances (fragrance oils). We use essential oils when available (like lavender, bergamot, eucalyptus & lime, and more), but some of our favorite fragrances (like honeysuckle for example) aren't available in any safe natural form, so we use super-high-quality body-safe fragrance oils to fill out our selection of amazing scents.

If you prefer to avoid our products that contain synthetic fragrances, just check the ingredient list on the product itself or on the product page. It will always indicate what we used. If it contains essential oil, it will indicate ‘’essential oil’’, if we use synthetic fragrances, it will indicate ‘’parfum'’ or '’fragrance oil’’.

Additionally, our products are almost all anhydrous, meaning they contain no water - this allows us to safely formulate them without a synthetic preservative. We love chatting about skincare ingredients.


Q: Are Dot & Lil products or the ingredients you use tested on animals?

A: Never!


Q: Are Dot & Lil products vegan? Do they contain any animal-based ingredients?

A: Almost all Dot & Lil products are vegan! The non-vegan ones are: bottled milk bath, sachets, cubes and bubble milks (they contain super moisturizing powdered cow's milk). We also choose not to use palm oil or animal oils.
