HOW TO CAST YOUR SPELL:
VISUALIZE ~ Think about what your goal or intention is for your Private Edition. Would you like something to wear at work? Something sexy for date night? Something soothing to help you relax? Something elegant for a special occasion? A signature scent you can wear for any occasion? Do you wish it to convey a particular season of the year? Maybe you want a spell potion for a specific purpose and would like me to choose the notes?
WEAVE YOUR MAGIC ~ Tell me your story. You might be trying to recapture a childhood experience – picking berries in the woods in the Autumn…watching a concert in Central Park in the Summer…baking cookies with Grandma at Christmas. You might be trying to set the perfect romantic atmosphere, or garner more respect at work, or make your boyfriend drool by smelling like a cupcake. The more detail you can convey to me, the more tools I have to capture the atmosphere you desire. Scent is the strongest memory trigger we’ve got, so take your time and let your imagination transport you to your special moment and tell me what it’s like.
MANIFEST ~ You get to choose 4 perfume notes. I have over 10,000 ingredients in my studio with many subtle differences, so rather than just saying “vanilla”, you can say, “a thick sweet vanilla that smells like cake batter”, or, “a boozy vanilla extract note”, or, “a powdery non-foody/perfumey kind of vanilla”. You choose 4 notes, but it is likely I will use around 12. Your notes give me the framework from which to build your perfumed story.
ALL MAGIC COMES WITH A PRICE ~
$35.00 for the first bottle – 1/3 fl.oz. Oil.
$25.00 for every additional bottle.
Would you like to add Pheromones? Add $35.00
Would you like to turn your perfume into a 1 fl.oz. cologne spray? Add $15.00
THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW:
You’ll be ordering here but you’ll need to send me an email with your info, and attach an image for your label if you desire. (We can also choose a name and label for you if you prefer.)
If you opt to add pheromones, you will also need to let me know which blend you would like. Our list of available pheros is here:
I need an average of THREE WEEKS from date of order to date of delivery for a Private Edition, so please give yourself ample time if you have a special occasion coming up.
Please understand that we do not duplicate commercial fragrances, and as I am not well-versed in what commercial brands smell like, please avoid using comparisons within your description. (Also, LPMP catalog fragrances cannot be directly duplicated as Private Edition fragrances.)
This is a ‘one shot deal’ kind of service. You describe what you want to the best of your ability and I create it to the best of mine. You may notice that there are other services of this kind available on the internet and their prices start in the hundreds and go up to thousands. We offer a higher level service as well, where you and I can mail samples back and forth to each other multiple times and we keep tweaking your scent until we get it exactly where you want it. We call this our Bridal Service and the cost starts at $300. But this Private Edition service is fun and casual, many of our customers order PEs on a regular basis and have a dozen or more, so if we don’t hit it exactly right the first time, this service is affordable enough to try again.
I only have time to create a few Private Editions per month, and there are times of the year where we have to turn them off because we are too busy. Please plan ahead if you are trying to mark a special occasion, thank you.
Consultations regarding a Private Edition fragrance will not be conducted until the order for a Private Edition has been placed. For those who are seeking advice/further refinement of their idea/concept, our LPMP community is always willing to assist, via our Private Edition ideas subforum:
Many times when we make Private Editions for our clients, there is some left over and we share the extra with the public. (We solemnly swear never to share any of your intimate details, don’t worry!) Just a few bottles mostly. Extremely limited quantity. So be prepared to see your perfume up here, and you may find yourself garnering a following for your creations. Some of our frequent creators have their own mini fan clubs!
Here is a list of perfume notes to help you construct your custom creation.
