RE: The tariff classification of Woodies Green Apple Potpourri, Woodies Starfruit Potpourri, Woodies Peach Potpourri and Woodies Lemon Potpourri from England

Dear Mr. Mittlestaedt:

In your letter dated October 19, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of your client Royal Cathay Trading Co.

Four samples of potpourri were submitted with your inquiry. The Woodies Potpourri consists of scented wood, twigs, nuts, seeds, leaves, dried flower heads, wood shavings and a carved scented wooden fruit. The Woodies Green Apple Potpourri and Woodies Starfruit Potpourri are packaged in retail plastic containers. The Woodies Peach Potpourri is packages in a cellophane retail package. These three potpourri are considered a set for customs purposes, the essential is imparted by the potpourri. The Woodies Lemon Potpourri is packed in a wooden basket.

The applicable HTS subheading for Woodies Green Apple Potpourri, Woodies Starfruit Potpourri and the Woodies Peach Potpourri will be 3307.90.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for perfumery, cosmetic or toilet preparations, other. The duty rate will be 5.4 percent ad valorem.

Additional requirements may be imposed on these product by the United States Department of Agriculture. You may contact the USDA at:

United States Department of Agriculture
Animal and Plant Health Inspection service 1201 Corbin Street
Elizabeth, New Jersey 07201

Your inquiry does not provide enough information for us to give a classification ruling on the Woodies Lemon Potpourri. Your request for a classification ruling should include the material breakdown of the wooden basket (i.e. bamboo, willow, etc.)

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have already been filed, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
