Welcome to the wonderful world of Uncommon Scents at the Meridian. Are you fed up with trying to find a fragrance that you can actually identify with, when most of what’s available is named after a famous “somebody else”? It can be frustrating when popular fragrance trends don’t reflect your personal preferences. If you are searching for something unique and uncommon that expresses the rare and special qualities which you alone possess, you’re in luck.
We invite you to play, explore, blend and create your very own signature scent from our captivating and alluring selection of more than 70 fine fragrances and essential oils. Our friendly, enthusiastic and well-trained staff are here to guide you through the process.
When you’ve found that particular scent combination that expresses your essence, we’ll write it down and attach it to your name in our database. That way you can recreate it or expand on it when you’re ready for a refill. The fragrance blending process is a fun, personalized experience you can share with family and friends. Or, come in on your own some rainy afternoon, let the soothing notes from our indoor fountain and relaxing tunes inspire you to experiment and create your own uncommon scent.
Dashing Brand custom scented products include moisturizing body lotions, massage lotions and oils, aftershave lotions and bubble bath/shower gels. Find your scent and personalize your entire body care collection.
