YOUR QUESTIONS. OUR ANSWERS.

YOUR INDIVIDUAL PERFUME

THE SCENTIST is an idea from PARFUMLOVERS COLOGNE and a world first. It is a new fragrance label that combines the secrets of perfume making with your personal preferences — to create a perfume perfectly suited to you. We have been developing and creating high quality perfumes for over 25 years. For THE SCENTIST, we have worked with renowned perfumers to develop a completely new approach to creating perfumes of the highest quality and individuality. This process is unique in the world. Immerse yourself in the fascinating world of THE SCENTIST — discover your magic, your creation, your perfume and the redefinition of a craft that is over 4,000 years old.

Using the specially developed, image-based personality test, we ask you about your preferences in the areas of cuisine, travel, events and more. Which flavors and colors fascinate you? Which vacation atmosphere touches your senses? Which lifestyle appeals to you? Of course, we also take your skin type into account. Your answers are processed by algorithms and intelligent database systems — from there, we develop fragrance chords and aromas that determine your personal scent aura. These algorithms are based on extensive data and the expertise of top international perfumers. This process is exclusive worldwide and makes every customer their own perfumer.

We do not work with simple matching methods. The heart of THE SCENTIST is the creative, artificial intelligence of innovative computer systems — it is a continuously changing, self-learning system that is constantly evolving — just as we humans are constantly changing in our thinking, feeling, perceiving and acting.

This means that, for example, three personality tests with identical inputs can still result in minimally different formulas, since the algorithm is constantly optimizing in nuances. This sometimes results in three fragrances that are 98-99.9% composed with the same or identical raw materials. These three perfumes are very close to each other in olfactory characteristics, but can be quantitatively and/or qualitatively different in the fine-tuning — so that no perfume is like the other.

After evaluating your personality test, your individual formulation is evaluated by our experienced perfumer and carefully mixed by hand. The creation of your fragrance requires the highest precision and profound knowledge of multi-faceted fragrance components and the composition of the finest aromas. Through state-of-the-art computer technologies that use artificial intelligence and learning, we ensure that your perfume is a harmonious, finely tuned and individual creation.
Yes. With the personality test, everyone can define their personal scent aura — no matter whether you are male, female or non-binary. Because each one of us is unique. Artificial intelligence and innovative algorithms process your answers, preferences, and characteristics from the personality test — and use them to create an exclusive fragrance composition that is as special as you are, regardless of gender, attitude, or age.
Yes, the entire perfume is handcrafted. The fancy shipping box and certificate inside are also unique and personalized with your name.
With every fragrance that is shipped by us, there is an identification code with which you can easily reorder your fragrance. You'll find it at three different places (always starting with "YOU..."): 1. On the back of you fragrance bottle, 2. On your certificate and 3. In the order Confirmation E-Mail. With your Scent Code in hands, access thescentist.com/reorder (hyperlink), enter your code in the input field and click on “find perfume”.
A little anticipation goes a long way. We strive to create your fragrance within 2–3 days. Once your fragrance is shipped, you will receive a tracking number to keep you informed. If you have registered with THE SCENTIST, you can track your shipment even easier and more conveniently through your account in the login area.



QUALITY AND PRODUCT

You will receive a unique perfume of the highest craftsmanship — it doesn’t get more individual than this. Without compromising on quality, design and packaging, we use the best ingredients currently available; the oils and aromas used are sourced exclusively for us from renowned fragrance manufacturers and raw material suppliers from all over the world. Your perfume creation comes to you in a weighted, modern 100 ml flacon. In addition, your perfume creation includes a description of its special, sensual appeal. It is the proof that your perfume is inimitable.
Since we produce the perfume ourselves by hand individually for you, the price is composed solely of the ingredients used for your perfume. So you only pay for what you get and the quality it contains. Compared to other perfume labels in the upper and premium segment, you do not pay for marketing, advertising or storage costs. It doesn't get any fairer than that.
We are a German-based company and follow the highest safety and allergen standards. You can find more information here: https://ifrafragrance.org/about-ifra/introduction
With us, there is no perfume off the rack. Each of our creations is unique and the formula is individually tailored to you. We create each perfume from scratch, other perfumers choose from existing fragrance palettes. Distilling your personality and spirit through the answers you gave in the personality test, a complex creation is created from the facets of your individuality. While you are still answering the questions, you are already spreading your magic — we turn exactly that into a perfume. High-quality, exclusive, just for you. Our own experienced perfumers guarantee the highest quality in the handcrafted production.



ORDER, PAYMENT AND DELIVERY

We offer free standard shipping via our shipping partner DHL for all orders with a value of 120 euros or more. In most cases, deliveries within Germany are delivered within 1-3 working days; the delivery times for international shipments can vary greatly (depending on the destination country).
We currently ship free of charge within Germany for orders over 120 Euros.

For further information please see §4 of our terms and conditions.

As all our individual perfumes are handcrafted, receiving feedback is one of the most important components of our success. This is the only way we can ensure a continuously increasing quality of our work.

Seven days after shipping, you will receive an email form inviting you to review your fragrance creation and your experience with THE SCENTIST . We have ensured that you have a text field at the end where you can tell us what went well and what we can do better.
