These days it seems everyone has a “signature scent.” But how many of those scents are actually tailored to your specific preferences? To celebrate the launch of their Mémoire Liquide Bespoke Perfumery Counter, in the newly revamped fragrance department of Bloomingdale’s 59th Street store, sisters Robin Coe-Hutshing and Jennifer Coe-Bakewell will be conducting one-on-one blending appointments tomorrow and Thursday from 11-7. The sisters, who are also the masterminds behind Studio BeautyMix at Fred Segal, have been custom blending fragrances for 25 years. They’ll guide you through their 75 fragrances and help you mix and blend your very own scent, which you can then buy in the form of a perfume, shower gel or body lotion. Or if you’re fragrance ADD like me, you can create a mini coffret of three different scents to mix and match. I had the pleasure of doing one of these appointments and it was definitely a treat to have Jennifer and Robin guide me through the process. I listed off a few of my favorite smells and from there the sisters started to hand me different notes they thought I would enjoy. They were absolutely dead on— nine out of 10 they chose were just my type. You can schedule an appointment by calling 212-705-2403 and get a scent of your very own. —MEGAN MCINTYRE
