If you love fragrance, you will LOVE this…in fact, I don’t think there is a more unique and fascinating fragrance set out there. The Mix*o*logie Blendable Perfume Collection ($69) is one part splash scent, one splash scientist, and three splashes of fun. I haven’t had such a good time testing a product in forever!
The set is reminiscent of a bar – who doesn’t love mixing up different liquor combinations to try to create the perfect drink? The Mix*o*logie Blendable Perfume Collection is a fragrance take on that concept, with 8 tall roller ball perfumes that can be worn by themselves or layered for a seemingly endless array of fragrances.
The set comes with instruction cards that explain how to get familiar with the scents, how to use them, and suggestions for possible combinations. If you like experimenting but still want to color within the lines, the provided ‘recipes’ are great options. If you march to the beat of your own drummer, you’ll toss aside the suggestions and go wild making your own signature fragrance.
The recipes are all inspired by drinks as well, using bar terminology like ‘on the rocks’ and ‘with a twist’. They even have different emotional scenarios to help you figure out scent possibilities that might match your current state of mind. Ironically enough, while most perfumes have alcohol as the main ingredient – which is a skin irritant and a headache inducer – all of these scents are alcohol-free and made from high-quality concentrated oils with a gentle, longer-lasting emollient, DPG (dipropylene glycol).
The eight scents, which again can be worn alone, include:
My favorite scents by themselves are Tender, Sultry, and Tenacious. My favorite combo? Two splashes of Sultry, one splash of Free, and one splash of Electric – which also happens to the recipe entitled ‘extra dirty‘, ha!
You’ve just got to put this set on your wish list for Valentine’s Day. It’s so much fun and you will be astonished at your creations that will become your own signature scents. – Lisa
