MANILA, Philippines – There is no signature more remarkable than a person’s scent – a sophisticated mixture of the explosion of the top notes, the subtlety of the mid notes, and the lingering presence of the base notes, all nuanced to a person’s lifestyle and skin acidity. But getting the right scent is not as easy as picking one off the shelves – there’s a science behind it that one must understand.
Scentsmith Perfumery, which means an expert on scents, offers the public just that – an unparalleled knowledge and leadership on the art of scents.
“Scents actually have the power to evoke emotions and moments based on our individual experiences. Just like how fresh linen sheets smells of home or how wood is more masculine, every scent has a meaning for us. And that is what we want to bring through Scentsmith – an experience that goes beyond their sense of smell,” said Kristine Torres, brand manager of Scentsmith Perfumery.
Whether it is the smell of rain falling after a long summer or of freshly cut grass, or the scent of lavender or rose that was long pressed in the middle of a book, scents evokes emotions and feelings.
True to the origin of scenting, Scentsmith maintains a very transparent approach with its product line in simple, straightforward packaging, a clear list of its non-toxic ingredients, and basic no-frills bottles. The personal and homecare products of Scentsmith are formulated without parabens, SLES, phthalate, mineral oil, petroleum, paraffin, and DEA.
“Consumers these days are very conscious of what goes inside the products they use. But there are still a lot of people who do not understand how to get the proper scent that would suit their lifestyles best – a person who is exposed to high humidity cannot use the same perfume as someone who stays indoors the whole day,” said Abdon.
There is more to understand about scents and its power, just take for example the acidity of a person’s skin or the lifestyles that they live. The thing with scents is that it is easily affected by various elements like heat which can come from the body or the environment.
Aside from perfumes, scents play an equally important role in making spaces more livable – home become more homey, offices can become more professional or less intimidating, and beds can become more inviting. One of the quirkier products of Scentsmith Perfumery are the Loo Drops, primarily used to keep the bathroom smelling fresh despite the incidents that may have occurred.
Inspired by how perfumeries were established in early times, Scentsmith uses amber-toned bottles to store its various product lines that ranges from fragrances, body care, hair care, and home products. In development are travel, skin care, and fragrances for the car.
Scentsmith Perfumery brings back the most essential in the art of scenting, a true understanding of the power of each scent.
