Design Your Own Fragrance by The Perfume Studio

When I was about seventeen years old a friend of the family made a snide remark about a perfume I was wearing.He told me that it smelt 'cheap and I smelt far too young for my age.' In all honesty to this day I don't really understand where those comments came from, but it made me reconsider my future perfume choices. When I had more hours at work I started investing in more expensive brands, searching for top quality perfumes. It was from that moment that my perfume obsession well and truly began and I've never looked back. My current perfume collection currently stands at around 15 bottles with brands from Jimmy Choo to the new Michael Kors Jasmine fragrance. On top of my bottle collection, I also have a tendency to collect perfume adverts as I love looking at scents of the past and also collecting the sample pages so that I can test other scents when I'm running out of my favourites. Since those comments a few years ago, I now look at perfume in a completely different light. I find perfume empowering and it can really evoke different opinions and emotions. When I was sent the 'Design Your Own Fragrance' kit by The Perfume Studio I was like a child in a sweet shop and I felt that santa had already delivered the perfect Christmas present. Having the opportunity to play around with lots of scents really excited me and I couldn't wait to experiment.

The design your own fragrance set comes with six blend bottles, pipettes and blotters for you to test your perfume throughout the process. The oriental set comes with 6 x 5ml blends of musky, spicy, woody, amber and citrus scents - perfect for the winter season. My first perfume mix was mainly focused around the musky and amber scents as those type of perfumes evoke personal memories of my late aunt and my mother who is still alive that wears her perfume.It reminds me of the moments we shared and the hugs I received catching a whiff of her perfume. I always believe that one of the first things you sense about a person is how they smell and i'm forever seeing girls walk past me on the bus and always I'm left trying to figure out what perfume they are wearing, it always leaves a lasting impression. When I walk past someone I hope they feel the same way about me and I hope that with this kit I'll be able to create a scent like they have never smelt before.

The Design Your Own Fragrance kit can be purchased from The Perfume Studio for £29.95*
