Making Invent-a-scent perfume with Interplay and Giveaway

J is such a girly girl. When we were asked to pick a kit to review with Interplay it wasn't hard to find something she would like. The invent-a-scent Perfume kit sounded perfect. J received a bottle of "Princess perfume" at Christmas and has recently started wearing it lots.  This kit meant she could make her very own perfume to wear.
 

The kit comes with everything you need. Rubber gloves to stop the scents going on your hands. The instructions explaining perfumery, and how they work. It also comes with useful tips on the depths of perfumes and how to make them last longer. It comes with 5 scents you can mix, 5 pipettes so they are not mixed, four empty bottles and labels to create your own, test strips and mixing pallet to try the scents out before making a big bottle.
 
The five scents are Musk which helps the perfume last longer, pink flowers which adds an extra base and Citrus, fruity and Green scent which gives it the initial smell.
 
 
Both girls were eager to have a go, but it is not suitable for S due to having to concentrate on how many drops of each scent you use.
 
 
J carefully followed the instructions to create the base using the musk and pink flowers and was adamant on doing a citrus scent, adding lots of citrus to the sample, then it was down to the "test". Dipping the test strips in and waving them in front of our noses all I could smell was washing up liquid! I don't think S was too impressed with J's perfume either so she went back to the drawing board and started mixing less of the citrus with the base.
 
 
Once she made a sample she liked we then had to mass produce it by adding the same amount of drops x20 into an empty bottle. This helped with J practicing her counting.
 
 
Then a name for the perfume had to be thought off  and a label designed...
 
 
The end result a nice sized bottle of J's perfume! We are very original with our names.
 
 
She loved exploring with the different scents and making her own "potions". Due to the concentration of counting the drops and the pipettes I would say it is suitable for 5+years under supervision and not any younger, although the box recommends 8 years and over. Retailing at £12.99 this is great value and something a little bit different too.

We're going on an adventure

  2. It's got to be floral. I love rose and violets with a little bit of musk thrown in to balance it out.

  5. I love creating essential oil blends, so would probably love this perfume-making kit too. I would expect it wouldn't be suited to children J's age, but I'm glad she did well with it. LOL to her initial citrus perfume.
