I love places like this, the only perfume I use is a scent I put together myself at another store, in another city. I was looking for somewhere in Boston to replenish my supply and I found this place. I went, and first impression--a note on the door, "back in 10." When someone did turn up, by the way they were hiding in the back of the shop, he started 'explaining the consept' to me for like ten minutes. I told him what I wanted, a body spray with a few scents together. And he went on for another 5 about how these were essential oils and so much more powerful...yada yada yada. This is the same thing I already had. Then he tells me what I want is impossible unless I buy an exspensive bottle of pure oil first and then put that in my newly purchase bottle of body spray!!! What!!! When I started to tell him what scents I wanted, two other people walked in the door (by the way that was it, them and me) he spots them and tells me "I need to go explain the concept to them." I waited another 5 while he sat this pair down at a nice table and started going through all their options before I realized he did not want my business...so I left. I couldn't believe it. I've never been treated so poorly in a store.

what fun! My boyfriend got me a gift certificate to this place for my last birthday, and I've been preaching the gospel ever since. Here's how it works...They have a bar of something like 900 different types of natural essential oils and blends. They can create an exact replica of basically any brand name perfume you can throw at them, or do what I did and have them blend you a custom scent all your own (because who wants to smell like everyone else, right?) EXCEPT that instead of an alcohol base, like most brand name perfume, this perfume is all natural oils, so the scent isn't overpowering, it doesn't irritate the skin, and it lasts longer than normal perfume. The guy behind the counter REALLY knew his stuff, and he patiently spent THREE HOURS with us, blending me the perfect scent (I'm very picky about my scents.) Best of all, my boyfriend actually enjoyed sitting with me the whole time, helping me choose scents, which I had not expected--he said it was like this cool chemistry experiment. So we came up with a blend that we would both love. Vanilla, pomegranate, patchouli and earth. who knew??! (Don't steal, its totally mine!)

Pros: The staff was incredibly knowlegable, and the product amazing--and less expensive than normal perfume!

Cons: There's only one or two people in the whole place who can blend, so if it's busy you might have to be patient.
