Having a bespoke scent created just for you is a luxury many of us dream of but few ever get the chance to experience.
ONE SEED has created Scent Bar
to bring this experience to everyone who loves beautiful, unique fragrances. Scent Bar allows you to customise your fragrance to your scent preferences, all for little more than the cost of our ready-to-wear organic collection.
Chose from over thirty-five different natural extracts and our perfumer will craft them into your very own bespoke scent! And there is no wait time as our Scent Bar notes are pre-tinctured and aged, ready to blend.
If you're not sure where to start, here are our tips for creating something beautiful and unique:
- Start with a small purse-sized bottle (8ml for $30.00) to make sure you love the scent, then you can upgrade to a full-sized 30ml bottle for your next round ($95), or you can choose an entirely different blend to keep things interesting!
- To create a scent that is not too challenging on the senses, go for one top, one middle and one base note, and choose notes that are similar in character or you might find together in your favourite food or dessert. For example, a blood orange top note, paired with a pear heart note and vanilla base notes make a lovely sweet and juicy fragrance. A coriander top note, bay middle note and woods base note is fresh, woody and a little spicy.
- Take inspiration from a favourite perfume or body cream, and choose notes that are similar to what you already love in other products
- If you are more adventurous, use the art of juxtaposition to create an intriguing blend. For example, a coriander top note (fresh and woody, paired with a rose heart note (sweet and floral) and a tobacco base note (smoky and sweet).
There is very little that can go wrong with your Scent Bar blend, so get adventurous and don't be scared!
