The Annie Oakley Perfumery Story

Annie Oakley Perfumery was founded in 1980 by perfumer/entrepreneur, Renee Gabet. Her mission was to create world class perfumes right here in the American heartland. She traveled all over the world in pursuit of the finest natural perfume essences. These essences were brought back to her perfumery where she hand-blended and created her very own fragrances….and now, Annie Oakley Perfumery has sold over 2 million bottles and remains the only perfumery in the USA.

Testimonial From Good News Travels founded in 1981

“Good News Travels recently took a group to the Annie Oakley Perfumery & Studio. We are always looking for interesting destinations and we found this and more. Enchanting indeed. Renee Gabet, the creator of Annie Oakley Perfumes, was in her lab working the day of our visit. She uses all organic, pure essential oils. She demonstrated how she mixes the oils to arrive at the perfect combination of scents… absolutely intoxication. Renee’s daughter gave an introduction covering the history of the company. We soon discovered the entire family is involved, a very inspiring story. And just as impressive, the product, the packaging and everything involved is develop and made locally in Ligonier, Indiana. It was refreshing to see labels stamped “Made in the USA”. I would highly recommend this destination for any group. The men enjoyed the visit as much as the women!”
Rita Knotts,Good News Travels, Sullivan, IN
