The Toronto-based small business Aromachology is making major headlines as its one-of-a-kind scents gain popularity all over North America. Founders Kirsten Menkes and Ashlee Firsten create custom fragrances designed to reflect a person’s individual preferences and suit the specific personality of it’s wearer. Their innovative perfume bar combines art and science: you choose your perfect scent profile – are you Sophisticated & Sensual? Bold & Brisk Woodsy? – and pair it with additional aromatic notes that can help stimulate certain attributes (graceful and creative here we come!).

Hear from Ashlee on what a typical day looks like at Aromachology as they roll out their new bath and body line and the kinds of lessons they’ve learned along the path to success.
