Custom fragrance inspired by you, for you.
Every place, every person, and every experience has its own scent. Tenth Muse's personal botanical fragrances create memories that last a lifetime.
How we create your special fragrance.
Personal Design Session
Together, we will explore the design of your personal fragrance. Our initial phone/video consultation takes around 60-90 minutes, after which, Mary Jo will begin blending.
Fine Botanical Ingredients
Our botanical fragrances are conceived using the finest ingredients available sourced from around the globe.
We are committed to the sustainability of all the ingredients and never use synthetics or aroma chemicals.
Your Unique Fragrance
Your fragrance will be yours alone and can be refilled as desired. No two blends are the same.
You will receive a sample and with us towards the final formulation and a 1 oz (30 ml) bottle of your personal botanical fragrance.
"Each person has a story and the process puts a delightful smell with their personal story."
– Christina, California
In mythology, there are nine muses that provide inspiration to the arts and sciences. Tenth Muse exists to use the olfactory to describe the journey that you’re on.
We work with the purest botanical scents.
Our fragrances are conceived using the finest ingredients available sourced from around the globe. We are committed to the sustainability of all the ingredients and never use synthetics or aroma chemicals.
Synergy is the key to our formulations, or, in the words of Aristotle, “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts”. Our creative process begins with a questionnaire developed by fragrance designer Mary Jo Howell as a catalyst to create the palette from which your perfume will be blended.
Tenth Muse fragrances are custom-blended in small batches using only non-synthetic botanicals and extracts.
Natural vs Synthetic
Synthetic scents do not contain the complexities of the growing region, the season in which the plant grew, the soil, sun, water, the neighboring plants, and the human touch that cultivated and harvested at a particular moment in time. Like a robot, synthetics have their purpose, but they lack soul.
We are passionate about listening to the essence of plants and celebrating our unique connectedness to all living things.
