Smell unique – because scent is personal.
We created Scent Trunk to be different than other fragrance brands. Traditional brands make generic formulas and overspend on flashy late-night TV ads (sorry Rihanna), we just focus on making unique, high-quality scents – for you. No cheesy ads, we promise.
Fragrance is personal.
Fragrance is the most powerful accessory. This is because the part of our brain that detects smells is also responsible for emotions and memories. This is why a familiar scent can bring us back to an experience from the past. A unique scent is our way of creating a lasting impression on any moment.
We design our fragrances in-house with perfumers from all over the world. Inspiration for our fragrances come from all over – from botanicals to cuisine to fashion, design and architecture. We listen to all of our senses, and our feelings, to inform our work.
Your Nose Knows
We make the experience accessible to everyone that has a nose. We invented the test kit so that you don’t need to be an expert on all that different fragrance ingredients. You sniff, our lab will handle the rest. If you do have a more in-depth understanding of your preferences, you can always let us know. Yes, we are real people.
We give 1.5% of all our sales to the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation, because aromatherapy has been long used in many cultures as a treatment for depression. Their goal is to identify causes, improve treatments, and one day prevent and cure mental illness.
We've been best friends since studying engineering in college. When we graduated we decided that we needed to smell better and buy a fragrance. We stepped into the department store and we were overwhelmed by the wall of scent, the number of options and the pushy sales staff. Even worse, the scents all smelled the same except they were endorsed by different absurd-looking, scantily-clad celebrities. We walked out and thought "there must be a better way".
