Design Your Own Perfume for Men & Women with MyParfuem

A signature scent is one of the most essential items in your wardrobe. It says as much about you as that little black number that you pull out for hot dates and that big satchel that you use to heft work to and from the office.

One of my favourite new finds is MyParfuem out of Berlin.

The idea behind it is that you are the perfumer. And don't worry, they have made it easy for you. You simply:

1. Choose the base essence
2. Add your ingredients (up to 30)
3. Choose your flacon - the decorative bottle it will go in

It's more affordable that you thought, isn't it? Especially when you consider that you're getting a scent that is unique to you and your preferences.

I got Dreamworld for my fella. It's a spicy, warm blend that is manly and leathery. A truly compelling scent with vanilla, cinnamon, leather, orange and peach. I love that you can create scents for men here!

Miracle is a phenomenal scent that moves from sweet and citrusy to light and floral in an instant. Apple blossom and neroli mingle with orange, vanilla, ginger and tangerine. What a fun scent for spring!

For summer though, it's going to be all about Summer II! Currant blossom (a flower I've never heard of but is absolutely wonderful), jasmine and Asian lotus coalesce with sandalwood, cedarwood and lemons for a truly refreshing and original scent.

If you want to go with something that you can be sure works, click on Our Favourite Perfume Recipes to see what other people are doing. You can also order these for yourself, if they move you.

Once you've created, named and ordered your perfumes, you'll get a Perfume ID number for each one. This allows you to reorder that same blend again and again.

I'm hooked!
