“Your scent is your most important personal accessory! It tells the world who you are and reflects your personality and unique style without words,” says Nicole Winnaman, founder of Original Scent, a chic scent bar in Old Pasadena. The company offers “affordable, chic, and accessible” custom, signature perfumes and scents, either online or in store. Thankfully, Pasadena has its very own full-service shop, located right on Fair Oaks Avenue.
The shop is amazing. And after studying a bit about Winnaman, it’s not hard to see why. Recently, Winnaman was named one of the most “Powerful Women in Entertainment” by Forbes Magazine; she has over 20 years’ experience in celebrity branding; and helped land fragrance deals for Britney Spears, Justin Beiber, Fergie, and more. With her expertise, the success of Original Scent only makes sense.
So, how does it work? By filling out a scent profile. This helps the scent stylists know how to “identify the perfect combination of notes to design your unique, Original Scent formula.” Once your scent has been created, you’ll receive three variations. Choose the winning one and poof! Your Original Scent is now your very own.
The Old Pasadena shop’s grand opening and red carpet roundup took place on March 14, and was hosted by Kelly Bensimon of Bravo TV / Housewives of New York. They featured Casa Dumetz wine tasting, cocktails, hours d’oeuvers, music and scent-ual gift bags. World renowned “Niche” perfumer Sarah Horowitz was on site curating the fragrance bar.
Because the store in Old Pasadena is full-service, it provides numerous options for original scents; from candles and home fragrance to body care, Eau de Parfum, and Cologne.
