Indigo presents SCENTED, our interactive club for perfume connoisseurs and those who would like to learn more about fragrance.
The monthly olfactory experience begins with a 2 ml. spray sample of a new/unusual perfume or one we might add to Indigo’s collection with a detailed description of its notes, an interview with the perfumer who created it and the opportunity to purchase the full bottle with a 20% discount that is available for one month.
We are also combining SCENTED with our Scents Unwrapped smell contest, due to your requests! In addition to the SCENTED sample, you will receive a spray sample of an anonymous perfume that has been unwrapped from its bottle and label. No ingredient list. No names.
It is your job to figure out which perfume it is. The monthly winner will receive a full bottle (an original) of the winning perfume.
Entry answers can be submitted by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the store.
Each answer must include the perfume name, along with customer name, shipping address, phone number & email. The deadline for your guess is the last Tuesday of the month.
The third sample will be 1 ml. of a bonus perfume that Indigo happens to love.
An online questionnaire about the perfumes will be available monthly for participants; we will publish a synopsis of the observations & comments we receive about the perfumes (sillage, longevity, performance, etc.), to help you determine whether they are for you or not.
Join us by signing up here. The cost is $12 per month (includes ground shipping), which includes the three samples and a chance to win a full bottle of perfume monthly. Or, sign up for a six-month run for $60 ($10/month).
The monthly samples will be shipped in the first ten days of the month, along with the full bottle drawing and announcements.
We look forward to welcoming you to our community of perfume lovers!
Lovely way to develop my scent skills and learn about new fragrances. Ann runs a great shop and I was so tempted by this month’s Ruby Wood:
What about having a members-only chat group?
The fragrance in June was quite mysterious. I Am looking forward to my July’s fragrance. I Love to be surprised. Thank You!😊
Thanks for the input, Miriam. I hope you were also able to sniff the other 2 samples in each month's group- they were leaning towards the feminine side. -Ann
Scented is a journey of discovery. The reviewer who mentioned how Scented can take her/him out of her comfort zone, leading to a fresh appreciation of olfactory families (s)he wouldn't have explored on her/his own, is quite right. It can also open your eyes (nose?) to houses doing extremely innovative things with fragrance families that are already favorites. Finally, the "unwrapped" game is incredibly challenging but an excellent way to put your olfactive training to the test (with an amazing reward if you "pass"!). Highly recommended!
Thank you, Jen! It also keeps Indigo on its toes as far as what to select each month!
The SCENTED subscription at Indigo is especially affordable...for the price of a couple samples a month, it's a lot of fun to anticipate the new samples. I love the idea of a small set of perfumes chosen for me to try every month, to go along with the ones I choose on my own. I feel like this keeps me more up to date with new perfumes and has the potential to push me outside my comfort zone with samples I wouldn't try otherwise. Also, they have set things up with the contest and comment blogs so that I feel part of a perfume community. Love it!
I really enjoyed the Scented samples....I also love the idea of guessing the mystery sample; I think that's a good way to improve our "palate" and learn to identify and separate individual notes over time. Will definitely order again!
