Just like how we choose a perfume, we can also be very particular with the scents we use at home. While some prefer the soothing aroma of lavender, there are those who’d rather use pine or cinnamon. Without a doubt, scents play a big role in our lives—we spray on perfume before heading out and we make sure the home is smelling nice all-day. If you’re a fan of scents, a visit to Scentsmith Perfumery is a treat you wouldn’t want to miss. At Scentsmith, your chosen scents are compounded or created specifically according to your needs. These are hand-blended and you get a personalized perfume bottle, too.

From bringing back happy memories to making the home as relaxing as possible, scents have the power to make us feel better and at ease. “Every scent has a meaning for us. And that is what we want to bring through Scentsmith, an experience that goes beyond their sense of smell,” shares brand manager Kristine Torres.

A huge plus is the formulation of the homecare and personal products—all items are formulated without parabens, SLES (Sodium laureth sulfate), phthalate, mineral oil, petroleum, paraffin, and DEA.

Aside from offering fragrances (Eau de Perfume and Solid Perfume Salve), the brand also has options for body lotion, body wash, body oil, shampoo, and conditioner. If these personal care must-haves aren’t enough to get you excited, they have a growing product line for the home as well. Achieve a calming ambiance either with an Aroma Mist, an Aroma Diffuser, or an Aroma Candle. Got stinky bathroom problems? The Loo Drops can help keep it smelling clean and fresh so you can feel relaxed every time you step inside the T&B. Scentsmith also plans to introduce humidifier oils and blended aroma oils in the near future.

Excited to have your own blend of scents compounded at Scentsmith? While waiting, you may want to take a few photos inside the store, which was styled by one of Real Living's Style Spotters,  interior designer Mara Manalo.


A corner features two vintage cabinets housing the different Scentsmith products. Customers can try on the different scents available to help them pick the best one that suits their personality. Some of the scents that stand out include Saffron Oud, Lavandin & Sandalwood, White Magnolia, Bergamot Patchouli, and Ambrette Sea Salt. We love how the store showcases the beauty of industrial, rustic, and vintage styles.

The industrial-inspired small space will remind you of an apothecary as it features posh cement walls, wooden shelves, and vintage cabinets that complement the amber-toned bottles. The store’s overall ambiance is uplifting and catching a whiff of the lovely scents can already improve your mood.

This corner highlights the personal care products and home essentials offered by the brand. Each bottle is pretty and has all the information you need about what you're buying as the packaging shows the list of non-toxic ingredients used in crafting each. Choosing a shampoo? We suggest you give Lavender Mint a try!

Visitors are welcome to take a seat, strike up a conversation with the store attendants, or watch how the bottles of perfume are made at the back of the store. A glass partition separates the work area from a sitting nook near the shelves.
