SCENTIMENT

WHAT
A set for making your own perfume at home. Use it to distil fragrant oils from natural ingredients like orange peel, flowers or pine needles. Then, it’s a matter of mixing your favourites to suit your mood and personal preferences.

WHY
Smell acts on the brain’s limbic system, the area associated with memory and feeling. It can have a powerful effect our emotions. But why be dependent on anonymous laboratories and inflated prices if you can whip up a scent yourself?

HOW
A bottle of the famous Chanel No. 5 perfume sells for almost €90 in the store, but the scent itself only costs €2.13 to make.

QUOTE
It’s like cooking: with a good cookbook everyone can make something tasty.
