The strongest of the five senses, smell augments gustatory pleasures and aids police in capturing flower-shop burglars. Keep on the smell-trail with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of perfume oils and bath products at Perfect Scents.
Perfect Scents' smell mavens festoon shelves with more than 250 scented oils, along with bath and body products from popular brands such as Thymes and Cucina. Three different sizes and applicators distribute alcohol-free and waterless perfume oils to nearby olfactories in flavors such as lime, ylang-ylang, and frankincense ($10–$20), and designer oils shroud personal atmospheres in the fashionable scents similar to Chanel's Chance, Usher's Escort, or Abraham Lincoln's Top Hat ($15–$25). Patrons can play a role in scent mixology, with a cadre of 20 different unscented lotions, such as vitamin ADE lotion ($6.50–$29), acting as blank canvasses for custom-fragrance additions. Or, stock up on a rainbow of glycerin soaps, in varieties such as cucumber, fig, and white tea, to add glamour to bathroom counters or to covertly graze during lengthy road trips ($4 each).
