During sessions, aroma mixologists first record each customer’s intentions, sorting out which scents they find appealing and which nose they’d like to bewitch. Rare varieties of essential oils pique the interest of a specific set of nostrils, and odorless pheromones slip past olfactory guards on their way to steal hearts or the national-security secrets found in every CIA agent’s nose. Six glittering gemstones, sporting a metaphysical significance, are enclosed within each guest’s one carefully crafted elixir. The perfumers entrust customers with the safekeeping of the personalized formulas for future use and deliver careful instructions on application and storage. Before leaving the pleasant smelling confines, each participant receives a bottle of their personalized scent to take home.

During signature scent classes, perfumers ply their olfactory wizardry to make personalized scents, carrying on a tradition they trace back to Cleopatra.
