Finding your signature scent in a world bombarded by beauty ads, shops with floor-to-ceiling flacons, and duty free corners in every airport is not an easy feat. What we really need in order to unlock our hidden olfactory personality is a stripped down, logo-less space where we can quietly and methodically interact with fragrances in order to find the smell that moves us most.
Nose does just that.
After purchasing a gift certificate for my husband a few months back during a Yelp event we went to the shop together recently. An extremely patient and knowledgeable woman greeted us, sat us down in the back, offered us some coffee and then rolled up her olfactory sleeves and set to work helping my husband find his fragrance soul mate. The shop's digital database cued up a few fragrances for him to try based on his preferences but the clerk also made some great suggestions of her own. After smelling about 10 different fragrances my husband narrowed it down to two and then tried each on his skin. His top choice turned out to be one of the scents that the clerk suggested, which was also one of the least expensive fragrances in the shop, so she was clearly looking to get him the best fragrance match, not the highest sale.
A wonderful experience all around and a fantastic gift idea!
