UNIQUE IN SUBURBIA | Custom Scent Shop In Geneva Has Over 100 Scents to Create With



by Brianna Bartemeyer


SCENTCERELY YOURS

GENEVA–The One Where Ross Can't Flirt. During this Friends’ episode, viewers witness Ross’ innocently-awkward attempt to flirt with the Pizza Girl. Upon discovering that the pizzeria uses a gas oven, his flirting took an unexpected (albeit interesting!) turn … as he started to discuss the ‘smell’ associated with, well, gas. Leave it to Phoebe, to genuinely and curiously ask, “Ross … what else do they add smell to?”



The answer - lots! Smell is everywhere. The fragrance industry is valued at $32.8 Billion and is projected to hit $91.17 Billion by 2025. Smell governs our association to people, places, products, etc.! It plays a major role in mood, emotions, behaviors and memories. And our memories are powerful - evoking emotions that contribute to happiness, danger (ie: gas, thanks Ross!), comfort, sadness … and many more.



Scents contribute to our identity, too. They tell our story. Similarly to a favorite song, they transport us. Cinnamon, pumpkin, cranberries, frasier fir - these scents connect us to the season and cherished memories with loved ones. Lucky for us, Geneva offers a charming, experiential custom-scent shop - Scentcerely Yours.




This unique shop offers over 100 scents! There are a variety of household and personal care items clients can make, including: candles, diffusers, soaps, shower gels and lotions (just to name a few!). SY uses natural soy wax, premium fragrance oils and 100% organic cotton wicks - allowing its candles to burn cleaner, longer and more true-to-scent. Recommended seasonal blends: Red Hot Cinnamon + Fraser Fir and First Snow + White Birch. We scentcerely hope you make special memories at this Geneva gem. –Photos Submitted
