In-Store Custom Process

Both in-store and at-home, our custom scent process is designed to be engaging and interactive. Instead of building a scent from scratch (and thinking we can do better than the experts!), we work with the best perfumers to provide our core scents which we use as bases. Then, our accords are specially designed as additions to build and create. We think of it as harnessing the genius of master perfumers while adding your own personal touch.
