When it comes to perfumes, everyone wants to smell differently and have that one special scent. And in New York, where there is a manicurist in every corner, you can decide not to buy off-the-shelves perfumes but conjure up a scent that is uniquely yours instead. Here are a few places where you can get your New York charter bus driver to take you to distil your very own fragrance that is customised just for you and you alone.
Located on 220 E. 65th St, Scenterprises is a heaven for scent lovers. Sue Philips, the founder of Scenterprises, will take her clients through an experience to remember be it for events, seminars and individual appointments. She personally takes you through all the scents available from the heady, sweet, fruity or fabulous smell of top, middle and base-notes. You will be given a chance to mix and match your personal scent from your pick of 18 different distinctive and luscious notes such like amber, herbal and green. The end result differs for each individual and will be customised just like how you like it. The price range you would expect for an affordable, luxury custom scent would be between $50 - $185 depending on size. Lifetime refills would cost about $50. Make sure you make an appointment with Scenterprises before asking your New York charter bus to lead you there.
