Finally, an affordable way to get a perfume personalized just for you
Bespoke fragrance isn’t anything new, but it usually requires visiting a fancy boutique and dropping a pretty big chunk of change. That’s not to say it’s worth it so you know you’re wearing a one-of-a-kind scent—but this splurge-worthy service is now accessible to all of us thanks to Scent Trunk.
Here’s how it works… You order a free Scent Test, which includes six cute rollerball fragrances that you test (on different spots) and rate as “love,” “like” or “no-go.” (They cover the spectrum of basic notes, including citrus, woods, aromatic, floral, amber and chypre.) The whole process took me less than five minutes, and after you submit your ratings, Scent Trunk goes to work creating a personalized perfume. A few weeks later, an atomizer filled with a month’s worth of juice is sent directly to your door. Oh, and it only costs $11.99 a month. Hello?!?!?
As you can see below, my customized creation features top notes of lemon myrtle and frankincense followed by middle notes of patchouli and musks before base notes of labdanum resin (whatever that is) and vanilla—and I love it! But what if you’re not into the blend? Just tell Scent Trunk and they’ll make you a new one, free of charge. How great is that?
As someone who’s somewhat obsessed with perfume, I give this service a 10 out of 10, and highly recommend it for anyone who doesn’t want to walk around smelling like someone else. And when someone asks what scent you’re wearing, it’s fun it say it was made just for you…
