No. 04 / Spice; No. 05 / Floral; No. 06 / Musk; No. 07 / Spice;
No. 08 / Floral; No. 09 / Ocean; No. 10 / Citrus
The coffret comes with recipes which you can read about here on their dedicated blog, but inspiration is free.
The scents can also be individually purchased.
No. 01 / Floral is "A watery floral bouquet with an explosive radiance presents itself in an arrangement of subtle exotic blossoms."
No. 02 / Green is described as "A wisp of fresh bergamot gives way to a distillation of dry woods and harvested elements in this light, clean and crisp modern classic."
No. 03 / Epicure - expect to smell "An understated barely-sweet sheer vanilla scent gently magnified by the rich aroma of amber honey captures an air of playfulness."
No. 04 / Spice holds a surprising twist considering its name: "Penetrating and dense herbal leaves linger in an addictive fusion of deep, dark and earthy elements reminiscent of a night of hard rainfall."
White tropical floral lovers can check out No.5 Floral "The intensely beautiful and seductive display of tropical white flowers creates a modern and elegant accord that’s divine and simply intoxicating."
No.06 / Musk is about white musk, "A soft veil of white musk mingles with a contrasting mix of clean, soapy and slightly powdery notes to create a composition that is fresh and alluring."
No. 07 / Spice "This rare essence of sheer and delicate white tea is a refreshing study in sophisticated restraint."
No.08 / Floral "Mysterious Turkish rose petals evoke a fresh, softly sweet quality with subtle green and spicy undertones."
No.9 / Ocean "A mild, oceanic scent conjures gentle seaside breezes under clear blue skies, warm sand, ocean waves and the scent of sun-kissed skin."
No.10 / Citrus reportedly goes beyond your middle-of-the-road citrus "Mandarin extracts vividly entwine with zesty and tart red grapefruit in an exhilarating fresh-squeezed nectar that reinvents the standard citrus note."
The Blend Kit is priced at $150.
Each individual rollerball is priced at $38 for 0.17 fl oz. of "pure perfume oil", a phrase which is vague as to what it means exactly.
