As a kid, I had a “make your own fragrance” kit, and pretty much thought it was the coolest thing ever, that is, next to my Fashion Plates kit. I would gingerly unscrew the lids of the essential oils, take a whiff, and try to squirt enough drops into a testing bottle to make a tolerable concoction. Although I don’t remember what ever happened to that kit, I DO remember that playing scientist and making an attractive custom scent was a lot harder than I originally thought it would be! Now as an adult, my time is quite limited so when I do need something custom or personalized, I sheepishly admit that I pay someone 95% of the time to do it for me.
That doesn’t always need to be the case, and I can now revisit my fragrance experimenting of yore, thanks to the new Foolproof Blending Trio option from Demeter Fragrance Library. If you aren’t familiar with the brand, it is truly an extensive catalogue, with over 300 scents and constantly adding new ones and new ways to smell them, such as through diffuser oils, atmosphere sprays, shower gels, body lotions, and massage and body oils.
The Foolproof Blending Trio let’s you pick three out of 10 of its classic scents, which include lavender, jasmine, wet garden, salt air, baby powder, and clean skin. You’ll get the three selected fragrances (1 oz each), and a toolkit with a bunch of testing strips, droppers, a funnel, and a yet-to-be-named empty fragrance bottle so that you can test and combine your notes into a one-of-a-kind creation. At just $45, you basically get at least four different fragrance combinations, which is quite a deal, and a load of fun in the process.
