Fred Segal's DIY Perfume Kit Lets You Create A Fragrance That's 100% You
It's always a bummer when you realize that your signature scent isn't truly your signature scent. That's the downside of being able to pick up a bottle of Marc Jacob's Daisy or Versace's Bright Crystal in at any makeup counter around the globe — anyone else can, too. But now, your quest for a totally unique fragrance is as easy as swinging by a Sephora. The quintessential beauty haven has just released a Fred Segal DIY perfume kit so you can create a custom fragrance that's all yours, right in your kitchen.
A luxury that was previously only reserved for the most regal of celebs, now you can brew your own sweet-smelling concoction at an affordable price. The DIY kit, dubbed The Blend , comes with a wide variety of single-note rollerball scents, like Water Lily (a light floral bouquet), Citrus Zest (a blend of citrus-y mandarin and grapefruit), and Amber Vanilla (a warm and sweet mix of vanilla and honey). With a quick swipe of a few of the different notes on your wrist, you've just blended yourself a totally unique signature fragrance. Voila!
For those who are a little nervous about accidentally creating a odorous, olfactory disaster, the kit also comes with a pamphlet with suggested blends, InStyle reports, like Forest Clean Musk + Forest Patchouli = the delicious "Morning Musk." But feel free to let your creative colors show and whip up a scent that's all your own.
But now that my custom perfume dreams are possible, I want to turn my apartment into a chemistry lab and start creating dozens of other beauty DIY treats. And thanks to these 4 other magical little kits, it's as easy as can be!
