My Perfume. Made for me. Je l'adore.

A few months ago, it was my birthday. Among the gifts I received is this unique precious perfume made for me by a close friend who knew just how much I love scents. I think this is a very sweet and personal present, slightly risky too once I learnt they did not know much about scents!
{The bows on the pictures have been added in to cover up its name, as it was named after me.}

The Perfume Lab is a small company in Paris, which allows you to design your own perfume by allowing you to decide what concentration of ingredients you want to add in its composition.
It took less than 2 weeks to reach me. The perfume lasts 1-2 years and the bottle is designed to keep the perfume cool and shield it from light. I was surprised once I opened it and felt how cool it was!

The perfume turned out to be wonderful ^.^ I could make out sharp crisp citrus notes initially, with jasmine lingering underneath those. It becomes slightly spicy after a few minutes. What I like about it is the fact that it seems to be able to stay on its top and middle notes for a long time, before it finally settles to its base notes. And it is the base notes that appeal to me the most. The musk is contagious. It's very calm and soothing. And even after washing my hands a few times, I can still distinguish the scent.

I'll be cherishing this until it lasts - and afterwards, I will, for sure, be keeping the bottle =)

That's amazing! Do you have to compose the whole thing yourself, or does the laboratory work to balance out the overpowering smells? 'Cause it would be terrible if the perfume ended up being too strong.

Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments ^.^ !!

@ Beyond Timid: Based on what I have been told, you do get to compose the entire thing yourself, which is a thrill, especially if you know about scents. But that's right, they would balance out the smell if they think something is lacking or too overpowering, so in a way I guess, you can never go wrong perhaps =P ... ! I see it as a kind of safety net.
