Wearing a perfume is like wearing accessories. When you are using one especially if the scent is really nice, it adds up to your overall image. I call it the “invisible fashion” one, because scent is not visible(obviously) and it can really drive attention from others just like wearing a gorgeous clothing. You may even get compliments for it.
Speaking of perfume and scents, just recently, I attended the launch of a new perfume brand, Scentsmith Perfumery, who just opened their very first branch located at 2nd Floor, Greenbelt 5, Makati.
“Scents actually have the power to evoke emotions and moments based on our individual experiences. Just like how fresh linen sheets smells of home or how wood is more masculine, every scent has a meaning for us. And that is what we want to bring through Scentsmith – an experience that goes beyond their sense of smell,” said Kristine Torres, brand manager of Scentsmith Perfumery.
Getting the right scent is not as easy as picking one off the shelves – there’s a science behind it that one must understand.
There is no signature more remarkable than a person’s scent – a sophisticated mixture of the explosion of the top notes, the subtlety of the mid notes, and the lingering presence of the base notes, all nuanced to a person’s lifestyle and skin acidity.
I did not know before that there is such a thing like “notes” when it comes to perfume. I usually smell and try it, if it smells good then it’s a go- if not, will look and try for another one- not knowing that there are these “notes” that you should consider. Hahaha! Now I know! Better late than never.
True to the origin of scenting, Scentsmith maintains a very transparent approach with its product line in simple, straightforward packaging, a clear list of its non-toxic ingredients, and basic no-frills bottles. The personal and homecare products of Scentsmith are formulated without parabens, SLES, phthalate, mineral oil, petroleum, paraffin, and DEA.
Inspired by how perfumeries were established in early times, Scentsmith uses amber-toned bottles to store its various product lines that ranges from fragrances, body care, hair care, and home products. I like how it looks, the amber-toned bottles makes the packaging appear elegant and high-end.
It’s not just the usual over-the-counter type of perfume that we usually see in mall kiosks. In Scentsmith Perfumery, when you order your preferred scent, that’s the only time that they will mix it- while you wait. Just a tip, when choosing your scent at the store, make sure that you spray it on your skin and do not just sniff from the tester bottle. The scent is different when sprayed on skin.
There is more to understand about scents and its power, just take for example the acidity of a person’s skin or the lifestyles that they live. The thing with scents is that it is easily affected by various elements like heat which can come from the body or the environment.
Here are my top 3 picks.
“Consumers these days are very conscious of what goes inside the products they use. But there are still a lot of people who do not understand how to get the proper scent that would suit their lifestyles best – a person who is exposed to high humidity cannot use the same perfume as someone who stays indoors the whole day,” said Abdon.
Aside from perfumes, Scentsmith also offers products intended for homes and offices. Scents play an equally important role in making spaces more livable – home become more homey, offices can become more professional or less intimidating, and beds can become more inviting. One of the quirkier products of Scentsmith Perfumery are the Loo Drops, primarily used to keep the bathroom smelling fresh despite the “incidents” that may have occurred(you know what i’m talking about-hahaha!).
Lastly, there are more Scentsmith products coming out soon that are already in the works such as essentials for travel, skin care, and fragrances for the car. Wow! excited to try them as well.
You better drop by at Scentsmith store now and experience how Scentsmith Perfumery redefines the art of scenting through their products. Who knows, you might find your preferred scent there not just for yourself but also for your home and office.
