“Not just a product, but a way of being in the world, that for centuries retained an aura of magic & mystery.” -- Mandy Aftel
In a step by step process learn how to blend a selection of scents into your own personal perfume. Choose from over one hundred essential oils, absolutes and concretes, some rare and exotic, to create a fragrance that is uniquely yours. This fun, sometimes surprising and sometimes revealing journey into scent memories and preferences will result in a perfume that is yours and yours alone, one that works with your individual body chemistry and reflects your personality and interests.
