Before bottled fragrances became available, humans perfumed their bodies by rolling in meadows of honeysuckle or lining their sweaters with scratch-and-sniff stickers. Explore a contemporary aroma ritual with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Makes Scents’ line of custom-blended perfume oils, designer-inspired perfume oils, and scentable products at Makes Scents.
The staff at Makes Scents concocts signature smells that stock a pantry of more than 100 total original perfume oils ($8 per 1/8 oz.) and designer-inspired perfume oils ($10 per 1/8 oz.). Make an olfactory impression on a loved one with scents such as chocolate, rose, and Vera Wang, or waft a snout-tickling hint to unkempt neighbors with a 2-ounce spritzer of fresh-cut grass ($18). Compose a completely individual scent score by layering paraben-free bath salts ($6–$7.50) or aloe-vera moisturizer with safflower and avocado oils ($3.75–$23) or by slathering a bass guitar with peanut butter and thrashing away. The diffusion reeds ($10–$25) snag the nose's attention while freshening odiferous space or the unscented blends allow customers to freshen up without antagonizing allergies.
Makes Scents carries more than 75 perfume oils in scents such as açaí berry, chocolate, china musk, and wild ginger that allow customers to mix and match to create customized fragrances. They can blend these extracts into an aromatic perfume or cologne spray, or infuse them into bath and body products that include bath and shower gels, shampoos and conditioners, mineral-rich lotions, and massage oils. Many of the products are also paraben free, and come unscented as a gentle alternative for individuals with aroma-sensitive allergies. Makes Scents carries many designer-inspired oils for men and women in familiar fragrances such as Gucci Rush and Dolce & Gabbana, and also stock its shelves with other products from brands such as L’Occitane, Crabtree & Evelyn, and Root Candles.
