If you are planning on gifting a fragrance this Christmas but unsure what scent your loved would like then The Perfume Studio London may have the solution for you. It’s so hard to find the right fragrance for someone special unless they have a specific favourite they always wear and that’s where these unique kits are ideal. Included in each specially designed kit you will find everything you need to blend your own bespoke fragrance, don’t worry if this sounds a little daunting as full instructions are given with the gift box and all the blends have been very carefully selected by The Perfume Studio’s in-house master perfumer Francois Robert.
Design Your Own Fragrance Gift Set – The Sensual Collection £40.00
I sampled The Sensual Collection gift box but there are three very individual collections available from the website including The Romantic collection and The Natural Collection. The concept behind the bespoke service is to bring the exquisite luxury of tailor made perfume to your own home where you become the perfumer and create it yourself. Once I had opened the kit up i discovered that it comprised of 6 perfume blends, a 30ml perfume bottle atomiser, 6 pipettes, 6 scent strips and full instructions on how to blend your own perfume. The six perfume blends included in The Sensual Collection are:
1. Amber: Key notes: amber, cinnamon, geranium.
2. Citrus: Key notes: bergamot, grapefruit, neroli.
3. Exotic Floral: Key notes: jasmine, violet, sandalwood.
4. Musky: Key notes: coriander, rose, muguet.
5. Spicy: Key notes: cardamom, black pepper, ginger.
6. Woody: Key notes: sandalwood, cedarwood, tonka.
Once you have set all your components onto a flat surface take time to sample each blend with the scent strip until you have whittled down your favourites. I found I was naturally drawn to four blends on first try but my advice would be to take your time, dip the scent strip into the blends one by one and slowly go through each one to get a ‘feel’ for which blends would go well together for your unique fragrance. The beauty of this home perfume collection is that you can select the blends that work for you and as little or as many as you choose until you find the ones that are just right.
Each individual blend is numbered so you can keep track of every fragrance you are adding and once you have selected all the blends you want to include this is your new bespoke perfume ready to add to the perfume atomiser. It’s worth taking your time and holding the scent strips to inhale the blends and make sure you don’t want to add or take one away before adding to the perfume atomiser. Once you are sure all you do is now move on to bottling your unique perfume by using the pipettes included until you have your very own luxury perfume – blended by you.
All the instructions are easy to follow and very thorough so there is no room for mistakes and it was such a pleasure to make my very own fragrance adding my favourite blends until it was just right. This would make such a thoughtful gift for someone special and with three distinct collections to choose from (Sensual, Natural or Romantic) there is something for everyone.
