By special invitation, Fleurage brought Create Your Own Perfume™ to Queensland. As part of the lead Christmas attraction, our custom fragrance system took pride of place in one of Queensland's largest shopping destinations. A special Christmas offer like none other in the world – create your own scent for yourself or for another as a gift.
The sumptuous fit-out with glamorous staff was a wonderful setting to explore and create. An idealic space to be guided by our master perfumer through the art that is personal scent creation.
It was a sensational opportunity to share with Brisbanites a taste of what we do here. A fragrant oasis in a sea of shoppers.
People were encouraged to take the opportunity to familairise themselves with ingredients that appealed to their curiosity. To explore, sample and expand their palette.
Our wonderful assistants guided people through the perfume workstation – showing how the ingredients were arranged, demonstrating safety practices, correct handling of the ingredients and mixing techniques. The formula ingredients were then selected from the display for the creation to begin.
Gentlemen found themselves enjoying a voyage of personal discovery. Finding adventure in scent they had never previously contemplated.
We checked in with the perfume during the fragrance making to evaluate how it was developing and provide comment and direction.
Completed fragrances were given the finishing touches of personalised labels, luxury pouch, presentation box and ribbon.
There is no gift like custom – be it for yourself or another.
The Create Your Own Perfume™ ingredients. There are eighty ingredients specially selected to work together in harmony with our our own scent blending wheel.
Many quickly realised they had more questions than they had first thought. The opportunity to ask someone with first hand knowledge is rare in this industry.
The introduction to the workstation only takes a few minutes and then we begin.
Each ingredient is added to the bottle drop by drop.
Many ingredients may go into the finished fragrance to ensure a sophisticated and well-structured perfume.
Each perfume creation session lasted about an hour.
Examples of perfumes made from the ingredients were available for sampling for added reassurance.
Our questionnaire and perfumer's discussion often surprised people with the accuracy by which we could arrive at the correct type of scent suited to their palette. This one of a kind system has been created by our Master Perfumer. It is her experience and knowledge of scent that allows such seemless and accurate personal perfume creation.
Making perfumes using our method removes most of the unknowns and replaces it with rewarding, personal discovery.
It is also extremely pleasurable and very social.
Some will remember this experience forever.
Perfume is like that, custom perfume even more so.
