Compose Your Own Perfume

Guided by France-Trained Scent Artist



All our products are designed and produced by our Scent Artist, Carolyn Hassett, and can be sampled in our Cary studio. The prêt-à-porter fragrances are composed of the same Galimard essences our guests use to make their own scent. The all-natural perfumes, essential oil blends, scrubs, and sprays are handmade, whereas our shea butter lotions are sourced from a reputable supplier and naturally scented with essential oils in-house.

This all-natural perfume from ESCENTUELLE was commissioned by the North Carolina Museum of Art for their 2016 Art in Bloom festival. The blend captures the green florals of a garden in a jojoba/fractionated coconut oil base. A portion of the sales of this blend are donated to the museum.

Carolina Bluegrass

This brand-new, limited-edition unisex fragrance from ESCENTUELLE evokes everything to love about NC: blue skies, tilled earth, tall pines, magnolia and jasmine in bloom, fresh-cut tobacco, and even a splash of summertime tea!

(men’s; fresh fougère)

Luck may be on your side wearing this rich yet understated ESCENTUELLE men’s fragrance, imbued with warm woods and moss at its base, native Mediterranean herbs and sea at its heart, and bright green tea and citrus at the top. Enjoy this visual review of Monaco by on Instagram

(women's; soft floral)

Our most popular scent, Moonbeam, radiates a graceful femininity, evoking the gentle light of its namesake. Peony, violet, and pomegranate flowers are layered over floral musk, amber, and gourmand notes. Hints of bamboo and atlas cedar—along with top notes of green tea, bergamot, and lychee—add some woody greenness to this soft floral from ESCENTUELLE. You'll find a review of Moonbeam on the perfume blog "Smells Downright Gorgeous."

(women’s; woody oriental)

ESCENTUELLE's newest women’s fragrance--founded on lightly musky woods and powdery iris in the base, gentle southern florals at the heart and top, and a touch of peach green-tea sweetness--brings to mind the scent of sun-warmed skin. Created with brides in mind, the soft focus of this fragrance will flatter you every day.

Riviera Breeze (unisex; aquatic)
(formerly Cannes)

This Mediterranean Sea breeze stirs with alpine herbs, wild jasmine, and pine from the French mountainside. Grounded in moss, white musk, and vanilin notes of tonka bean and ambreine, Riviera Breeze—our only unisex scent and a customer favorite--soars on fresh citrus, black tea, and the lightest of florals. Did you catch a faint whiff of tobacco on the air? Of course you did—you're on the Côte d'Azur! Don't miss this fresh but far from soapy aquatic from ESCENTUELLE. Enjoy this visual review of Riviera Breeze by on Instagram.

That ’70s Scent (women’s; floral chypre)

Trip back in time with this floral chypre from ESCENTUELLE. Gardenia, lily, rose, violet, jasmine, and tiare—the diva blooms at its heart—are cleverly balanced by rich underpinnings of moss, vetiver, orris root (iris), almond, and concretal, and by the sharp green of galbanum, bergamot, green leaf, phisalis, and pear at the top. That ’70s Scent: the power suit our mothers and sisters donned before the advent of shoulder pads. Try it on for size.

Full Bloom (women’s--special discount)

Enjoy a heady summer afternoon in a garden with this women’s fragrance from ESCENTUELLE. You’ll be surrounded by waxy florals and an undertone of soft woods.

Warmth (men's--special discount)

ESCENTUELLE’s update on a traditional men’s fragrance is an amble in an autumn forest that takes you through scents of bamboo, cinnamon, and waxy flowers, rising up from amber-vanilla woods.

The calming effects of lavender oil should also help keep soothe any jitters.

Chai Spice Essential Oil Blend

We’ve followed the same recipe you’ll find in your favorite chai teas by blending the pure essential oils of clove bud, cardamom, ginger, Valencia orange, vanilla absolute, cinnamon leaf, and anise. Diffuse it to spice up a room, or add a couple of drops to a dollop of unscented lotion for a warm, fragrant cloud to follow you through your day.
