There is a number of online and brick-and-mortar businesses that give people the freedom to create a unique perfume line for personal use or as gifts for family and friends. Scenterprises in New York City offers an in depth workshop that walks people through the art of creating a scent from beginning to end, notes CBS New York.
The boutique shop has clients take a scent personality test to determine favorite fragrance families and blends of florals, fruits, citrus, musk, moss, wood and spice. After base notes are identified, the owner and staff work with an individual to create a signature scent, states CBS New York. Actress Katie Holmes and actor Jamie Foxx are a couple of the celebrities that have visited the store and left with a custom line of perfume and body and bath products.
Online perfume makers also provide instruction and suggestions for creating a scent; combinations of aromatics are given once a general theme is chosen that can be customized, purchased and shipped easily. As opposed to the manufacturing of perfume in the past, these options give customers the ability to buy the finished product in small, reasonably priced quantities, instead of reverting to buying mass amounts of one ingredient or sending for samples from the perfume companies themselves.
