Columbia is a town full of fun and quirky shops that make the town unique. One of these staples of CoMo is Makes Scents, which as you can probably guess, is a fragrance shop. The shop has shared its scents with Columbia for over 45 years and has gained quite a following from locals and visitors alike.

The shop specializes in custom fragrances that customers can test and choose from. You also have the choice to make your own personalized fragrance that will set you apart from everyone else. When personalizing your scent, you can choose between over 200 perfumes and essential oils.

These scents are long lasting and concentrated (made with no alcohol) and can be worn as skin oils, sprays, colognes, perfumes, and they can be even used for custom bath, body or home products. Additionally, these products can be made without any scents in the case that someone might be allergic to it.

Some of the product lines that Makes Scents carries are Ahava, butter LONDON, Cottage Greenhouse, Crabtree & Evelyn and many more. Be sure to check out the rest when you visit the store. If you want to preview what kind of scents the store carries, there is an extensive list of scents and perfume oils (for men and women) listed on its website. 

The holidays are fast approaching including the best holiday of all: Roots N Blues N BBQ. Be sure to smell your best and stop by Makes Scents to create your personalized scent. It just makes sense!
