Scentbar: scents for Troubled Times

Scentbar: scents for Troubled Times

At Scentbar, consumers are expected a number of questions regarding their memories. Utilising the link between these concerns, a specialist then produces an individualized formula to mirror the clients’ anxieties and desires. The perfumes are blended from an smell palette which includes ubiquitous, contemporary scents such as for instance processed foods, light industry, leasing car and grandma’s bag. Unlike mass-produced customer items that cannot perhaps make one “unique”, Scentbar delivers really one-of-a-kind fragrances in simply fifteen minutes. Each scent can be as personal as our memories, hopes and worries. Two clinicians that are lab-coated musicians Shawna Dempsey and Lorri Millan, staff the club. Dempsey administers the scent-questionnaire and Millan produces each individualized perfume.
