This experience enables you to create a fragrance that is not just as unique as you, but one that you will love to wear on special occasions.
Whether you want to add a bit of spice from the Orient, stay chilled with the relaxing notes of amber, evoke romance with rose, or really hot things up with a heady and stimulating jasmine mix, there is something for everyone!
Unlike high street fragrances, you are given the opportunity to see how your fragrance will wear as the day goes on. The experience starts by an explanation of why these changes happen so that you understand how long certain scents will last. It is then time to start the fun part, smelling the 21 amazing blends and creating your signature perfume or cologne!
When you have named your beautiful new fragrance, you will then receive a 5ml bottle of your fragrance to take home. Then all that's left to do is show it off.
The experience also includes a full membership to The Perfume Studio, which includes registration of your fragrance in their library.

I got this voucher for my 70th birthday and thoroughly enjoyed designing my own perfume. My perfume consultant, Sao, in Chadwell St Mary, Essex, was very helpful and patient as I sniffed my way through the oils and made my choice. A very satisfying experience.

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our Perfume Experience at Beauty Secrets in Hove. The perfumery expert was very knowledgeable and we were treated to a fun experience lasting two hours, never feeling rushed and being given plenty of opportunities to try out different combinations. We were served lots of hot drinks and the salon was stylish and comfortable.

I wa bought this experience for my 40th and have to say it was great fun. They staff were helpful and friendly, there was some up selling but no hard sell. The session was interactive, fun, informative and you go home with a unique and useful product.
No I do not recommend this product.
My husband purchased the Platinum experience for two for his mum and myself as a Christmas present. The voucher said we would receive a glass of bubbly on arrival at the hotel. The perfume-making session was in fact in someone's house, which was pleasant enough, but not as advertised. No offer of bubbly was forthcoming. It was interesting to smell the different fragrances but difficult to decide on the combination to choose as it was to be done from smelling the samples on the sticks and we could not test how our mixtures would smell as the perfumes were only mixed once we had chosen our blends. Perfume quite often smells different on the skin but it was impossible to try in advance. The host gave a little background information but mainly read from the descriptions on the cards. The host was pleasant but not over-friendly or chatty. It was lucky that I tried my atomiser before leaving as it failed to spray and had to be changed. Despite being told how long the top notes, middle notes and base notes would last, the whole scent disappears very quickly so I suspect all are very Despite being told how long the top notes, middle notes and base notes would last, the whole scent disappears very quickly so I suspect all are very dilute. This was okay as an afternoon out and as it was a gift, it was thoughtful. However, I would not repurchase the fragrance and would not buy a similar experience for a friend. I would be interested in a response from Activity Superstore to confirm whether or not our experience was what we should have expected.

Thank you for providing us with your valued comments. We have looked into this for you with the venue and I can confirm that locations vary across the country. They have their main flagship events which are in hotels, in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Stratford Upon Avon and here, a glass of bubbly is included and the group size is generally from 24 to 32. However yours was in their own home and generally are a smaller group size. Due to the nature of the experience and the 21 perfume blends that customers sample, sniffing a blotter dipped with each blend is the best way we can sample each one. You can imagine it would not be possible to put a little of each 21 perfumes onto your skin as one would not be able to smell the difference between each one as they merge, and our experience is about mixing and choosing a number of different blends. I am sorry to learn that your spray pump was not working correctly, this is unfortunate but glad it was able to be resolved quickly. If you could contact me directly, I will be happy to go through the points raised in more detail and speak about the options available to you. I look forward to hearing from you.
