When you travel to new places one of your key focus points will be to try to create as many memories as possible. In the human brain, the regions that juggle smells, memories and emotions are very much intertwined – so here’s a tip that will tick all of these boxes for sure.
Collect & Bottle is a small perfumery studio where you create your own signature scent. During your booked appointment, Collect & Bottle’s trained staff will guide you through their fantastical fragrance library, containing 80 carefully selected ingredients. Your nose will really get a workout, navigating through natural ingredients such as bergamot, jasmine and patchouli, to synthetic classics such as Hedione and Iso E Super. To reset your sense of smell, just sniff some coffee beans (no, I’m not kidding)! After you’ve selected your ingredients, a unique recipe is formulated which you then get to mix and name – and voilà: your own, personalized Eau de Parfum in a 30 ml bottle to bring home!
A session at Collect & Bottle usually takes around 2 hours and they only accept booked appointments with up to two people creating perfumes at the same time. This is truly a great way to spend an afternoon while also creating an unforgettable memory to bring back home.
