Scents excite the memory, conjuring images of a childhood PB&J or a teenage apprenticeship to the village soapsmith. Create memories and scents with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of personalized products at the do-it-yourself fragrance bar at Bumble Beads in Latham.
Bumble Beads delights olfactory organs with a smorgasbord of tantalizing fragrances mixed and matched into new, personalized scents. With more than 50 fragrance options from which to choose, visitors can blend light floral scents with exotic spiced aromas or muted neutral nostral fillers.
Once the perfect potion has been created, the scents are imbued into bath and body products such as a shower gel ($16.95), 4-ounce spray perfume ($24.95), or whipped body butter ($22.95). Scent combinations will be kept on file for future reference, letting clients lock down a favorite scent and keeping a record for future historians of our era's smellscape. After using the Groupon at the blending bar, the remaining value can be applied toward Bumble Beads' fun, quirky products, including clothing, customizable beaded jewelry, and decorative houseware.
