Create Your Own Perfume - Scent Natural Review
Scent Natural Personal Perfume Review
By: Lauren and Chris
Website: Create Your Own Perfume!
I heard about Scent Natural for the first time in the blog world, which just goes to show you how much I appreciate reviews and/or giveaways online. They do show you some great products. Yes, yes, I was sent a free bottle for review...however, this is something I'd keep in mind for future gifts I buy myself because it's such a unique gift idea.
You see, Scent Natural allows you to create your very own perfume. You can choose up to five scents to add to your perfume, but don't worry. If you aren't sure what works well together, you can pick one scent off their full list and they will give you a few choices of options. This way allows you to pick the main scent and then they add the other scents that can go with the mix.
For example, my mom and I chose Vanilla and they gave us this list: Vanilla, Honeydew, Pear, and Cucumber...so we chose it, and those are our scents!
Then you go and pick the type of bottle you want, the color the perfume will be in the bottle (you can pick pink, blue, clear or yellow), and then you actually name it!
We went with a rounded bottle and silver cap on top with a yellow color. Actually naming the perfume was much harder...but we finally decided to go with Blessed. You can actually upload an image to go on the bottle, but we just stuck with using a simple name. And of course, our perfume smelled quite lovely...not too strong!
Each bottle is about $50 plus $6 or so for shipping. I know it sounds like a lot, but this is still a wonderful gift. If you have a budget around this much, this is all you need for that person. It's perfume that's fun and will last awhile, plus it's way more personalized than most items.
However, if you want perfume for party gifts, wedding favors, or even for a book launch...you can get each bottle at $18 if you buy at least 10. The price gets lower as you buy more bottles in bulk. Nice, huh?!
Now, here are my mom's own thoughts (AKA Chris): A fun idea and unique gift. It's also easy to do. I like that you can make your own scent or they give you suggestions to help. The packaging (the bottle came in a silky, drawstring bag the color of our perfume) was a really nice touch. I'm very happy with the quality of the product.
