Uniquely Yours, Your Very Own Fragrance

5:43 pm Deelicious 0 Comments

Smell is such a gift.

Not only it relaxes you, it also can excite you or make you feel.... at ease, that very moment.

However, I like it seductive and sexy. Oh but sexy is so cliché, ain't it? So, what about seductive and desirable? Yeah, that's seems OK, sounds good.

Some of my favourite perfume or scents usually fall into categories like, fresh, woody, relaxing and seductive - usually you buy from popular brands or pick it up at retails.

What if you can make your own perfume? Like those perfumers, who spend hours and hours of their time to make the "perfect perfume" for you?

You can do so now with Bisou Bon Bon and that's great, because I wanted my very own "signature" perfume *think seductive people!*

Before we into the details, to illustrate how important smell or scent can be.... and how a crazy person (who is gifted by the way, an artisan in his own way) will do to create the greatest perfume on earth, watch this movie, basically, simply because I love this movie as well.

So, with Bisou Bon Bon, you can create your very own perfume, it's hassle free too.

I actually wonder how, so curiosity answered when I got invited to the Butterfly Project event to make your own perfume and tea party (yes, my very first....to Butterfly Project event!).

Here's how to make your own perfume:

First, get into the mood. This is me... (just joking)

Look into all these bottles..... amazing... (from the movie: Perfume)
As you probably know, there's 3 notes that makes the perfect perfume.

The base note, the middle note and the top note.

Lots of choice available....

Briefing first.... by Shelby
And take a carrier, put some oil...
2ml is enough....

My selection of base note.... I got the patchouli...rosewood, and frankincense! 15 drops in total...

these are my middle note! Rosemary, geranium and palmarosa, about 9 drops in total...

And finally, these are the top note! :P
Bergamot and Clary Sage.... and it's about 6 drops in total.
After dripping a few drops of this, that.....

You need this, 20ml of alcohol and some water
And some of the behind the scene pics! LOL!

Yes, I smell each and everyone of it, quite particular on which scent I wanted. Thanks to Jeremy for taking this for me....

Hardworking dropping down my scents!

Thanks Shelby! :P

And we are done! Keep for about 2 weeks - best to keep 6 weeks so the perfume can really mix well.

After all the perfume work, time to enjoy some good tea and dessert!

Of course, we need a proper introduction to drinking good tea - and I find the environment of this cafe, Betjeman & Barton is cosy and relaxing, not crowded or noisy....

And we are served with desserts!
Macaron (Green Tea and Raspberry), Orange Chocolate Cake, finish with Pure Milk and White Chocolates!

The Orea Mousse de Fromage is plated well!

One of the best-seller in Betjeman & Barton - the Pouchkine Tea - light on strength, aromatic and soothing for me

With some of the bloggers attending to the event! Yes, I still wear the flowers band, just for a while....
Behind the scene with Jeremy

The ever sweet Sabby Prue....

Have to hiao a bit....

Some of the tea sets available...

Colourful tins available for you to house the tea leaves....

I like these tins and sets!

Drink more tea, relax a bit....

And of course, take a pic with Tammy, a must.....

And go totally crazy with Tammy's flowers band!

Even crazier!

And in the end, I love the chocolates so much that I actually bought some home....

Nice packaging.... (the 6 pieces box)
These are my choices..... RM3.50 per piece
1. Noisttes Gianduja (Hazelnut Chocolate)
2. Pralinosa Sombre (Dark Pralinosa)
3. Lait de Melon (Melon Milk)
4. Lait Oren (Orange Milk)
5. CNY Exclusive (Dark Truffle)
6. Lait de bleuet (Blueberry Milk)
