“Make It & Take It” Custom Perfume Event at Sweet Anthem

Sweet Anthem Perfumes is pleased to announce a “Make It and Take It” custom perfume event, June 3 thru June 7! Shoppers will be able to make their very own custom perfume in store without an appointment needed, browse nearly 30 individual perfume materials to choose from, and have a custom label created for their one of a kind perfume. Intrepid noses can choose from an Eau de Parfum or a Perfume Oil for their custom creation.

This Make It and Take It event is in part to celebrate new, longer store hours for the perfume shop. Starting June 3, the shop will be open Tuesday through Saturday, 12 – 6pm for extended hours this summer. The first five shoppers to visit during Sweet Anthem’s new extended hours will be treated with a goodie bag full of the perfumer’s favorite summer scents.

In addition to the Make It and Take It custom perfume event, shoppers can peruse the large number of independent perfumers that the shop is proud to support. Many award-winning West Coast perfumers like Olympic Orchids, Imaginary Authors, and Yosh Han are featured, along with Sweet Anthem’s own in-house line of vegan-friendly perfumes, that are offered in perfume oil, eau de parfum, and solid perfume.

With Father’s Day approaching, this event is a great opportunity to make dad his very own custom scent. For more information and to RSVP, check out Sweet Anthem’s event page.
