Your perfume expresses something about you and it makes a lasting impression. Only last month I was at a party being invited to smell someones perfume and since then she has been known as ‘the girl with the perfume’. A 2013 study show’s that the average woman will spend over £3000 on perfume during her lifetime.
When I was a child my favourite thing to do was to make my own perfume. Using a bowl of water and some flower petals picked from the garden. However it never came to much more than just a bowl of scented water. But what about creating your own perfume and having it bottled professionally just like the celebrities do? If Beyonce, Britney Spears and Nicky Minaj can do it then why can’t we?
Well, we can.
Two weeks ago I went to #BloggersAreUs up in London and met Ben from The Perfume Studio. The perfume studio specialise in creating unique individual fragrances.
They offer range of different experiences to create your own perfume from Hen parties to a platinum experience with afternoon tea. They also offer a home kit to design your on fragrance which is the perfect gift idea for Mothers Day coming up.
Each fragrance created consists of a base note, a middle note and a top note. (You can see what options were available below). With each note you can also. choose whether you want a half, whole or double note to go into your final fragrance.
Base Notes | Woody | Balsamic | Musky | Mossy | Amber | Gourmand
Middle Notes | Aldehydic | Ozonic | Fresh Floral | Rose Floral | Exotic Floral | Heady Floral | Spicy | Neroli | Tonic Sport
Top Notes | Citrus | Green | Fruity | Herbal | Transparen
I was lucky enough to create my own perfume at #BloggersAreUs event. Creating my own perfume was such a fun experience. I loved being able to mix and match different notes to create my final perfume. My final choices were Gourmand, Heady Floral and Citrus. What’s better is that the recipe for my perfume is kept in the perfumes studio website ready for when I need to re-order my perfume.
With love, Sian x
