Fragrance DIY Kit

A makesy discovery kit is a great way to sample ingredients, components or fragrances from our top categories. You’ll be able to get an idea of what each ingredient or fragrance is, how they make you feel, what they smell like…the whole thang. With these kits, you can try out a small quantity before you set yourself loose & go crazy. We like to think of it as a “try before ya buy in bulk” kind of deal, ya feel?

Our personal favorite discovery kit is the create your own fragrance discovery kit. This kit gives you the opportunity to choose 10 fragrances out of our extensive fragrance options, and like the name says, create your own! Yep, that’s your kit, your way!
