Who we are

Creative Formulas was founded in 2020 by Mr. Filipe José Leira, an independent highly skilled perfumer who creates perfume formulas through chemical analysis, olfactive knowledge and research, with an excellent source for understanding how successful perfumes and their notes are constructed.

When you access the Platform you may select the Formulas based on its fragrance and notes descriptions. After you register on our Platform, place your order, and provide the required payment information, we will send you a PDF file by e-mail describing the Formulas you have purchased after your payment is processed (or approved by the financial instituition).

The Formulas are not made available to the public in general. They are our trade secret, which are disclosed strictly to clients who agree are bound by these Terms & Conditions and to pay the corresponding amount as a compensation to Mr. Leira’s efforts and know-how developed over time.


Payments are made electronically, through the PayPal and Stripe (world) and Pix (Brazil) platforms. Accepted payment methods may vary depending on the payment platforms applicable in your country, but the usually accepted standard is credit card.

All payments are made in BRL – Brazilian Real, according to the exchange rate applicable in your country. For your convenience, our Platform has a currency conversion tool, but the data presented are mere estimates, and final payments are always in BRL – Brazilian Real.
