Klean Spa is the original home to Los Angeles’ “blending parties.” At the blending party, a Klean Spa scent specialist works with you and your guests to formulate your personal fragrance. Once you’ve created a custom aroma, you are encouraged to name the perfume to seal the deal. Many Klean Spa customers have several “signature” fragrances based on their mood, what time of day it is or where they are going. Your personalized scent comes in a 1/3 ounce roll-on perfume and a 4 ounce lotion. Each blending soiree includes light bites and bubbly thirst quenchers, and can be a superb setting for a girl’s night out, birthday bash or bachelorette party.

Le Labo touts itself as the “only made-to-order” perfumery. Using a fusion of pure essential oils that the customer chooses, these scented creations are the highest in quality, not only because of the ingredients and the perfumery artisans, but because they are fresh and not pre-blended. Translation? The alcohol content and the essential oils never touch until your custom-made scent is blended and taken home. Not sure what your bespoke aroma should be? Le Labo has a selection of pre-determined formulas that may just have your name on it. Scents include Bergamote 22, Fleur D’Oranger 27 and LA exclusive, Music 25.
