Mélange Perfume owner Denise Estrada's background in product development & formulating companies she co-owned and consulted for sparked a desire to create a fun, comfortable environment where fragrance exploration could be approachable and comfortable for everyone. This led to the opening of her Los Angeles fragrance bars and retail stores, Mélange Apothecary Essenza Brentwood. Mélange is the French word meaning to mix or blend. Denise loved time with her customers and helping them create personal fragrances; the one-on-one interaction and small blending groups spoke to her creative nature and preference for a smaller, collaborative environment. Both venues were popular with people who liked custom blending and discovering well made products from small manufacturers. This was the inspiration for Mélange Perfumes. Today, Mélange Perfumes are formulated and hand-poured at her Los Angeles studio in batches so they arrive to you perfectly fragrant. Inspired by the artists' palette, Mélange Perfume Blending Palettes contain four gorgeous solid perfumes in one convenient kit. perfume is designed to be worn alone or layered to create a unique fragrance blend – custom blending at your fingertips! They perfect size for a handbag or travel and spark the creative perfumer in each of us.
