Custom perfume is coming to the east valley…custom? Yes, that’s right, custom! And for less than you would find at a department store! I had the pleasure of meeting Dana knees this month at 20 Lounge in Scottsdale. She was visiting AZ to introduce her new company, Pastiche.
noun pas-ˈtēsh, päs-
: a piece of writing, music, etc., that is made up of selections from different works
: a mixture of different things
What is pastiche?
Launched in November 2013, Pastiche is a brand that allows you to create your own custom, signature perfume through social selling. Personal Fragrance Designers bring a luxury perfume bar to your girls’ night out, bridal party or special event.
Bill and Dana Knees first introduced pastiche in the high-end market of Rancho Santa Fe, CA. Together, they have 20 years of experience in beauty and luxury industries. Along with working for major global companies, Dana has a special place in her heart for the fragrance industry. She spent some time working with Robertet Fragrances.
Pastiche is an elevated brand that is social, affordable, and luxurious. The fragrance industry is a multi-billion dollar industry and for good reason, people love to smell nice. Consumers spend money on the fragrance of the moment that everyone else is buying. It is no longer a “personal” fragrance. E-retailers sell custom fragrance that will cost you around $150-$200.
With Pastiche, you get to design your fragrance in a social atmosphere with your friends. To top it off, you go home with your fragrance that night! No ordering and waiting. You can even customize your bottle with a monogram and jewelry! Plus, you get to eat a “Pastiche pizza.” Prices for Pastiche start around $42.00.
Pastiche is made of superior quality ingredients with a higher percentage of perfume oils. Eau de Toilettes contain only 5 – 7% perfume oil. Pastiche Eau de Parfumes contain 18% perfume oil! The unique fragrances were designed by Master Perfumer, Vito Giovanni Lenoci. Vito has over 30 years of experience crafting fragrances. To touch on how special that is, Dana likes to tell people, “there are more astronauts in the world than master perfumers.” This is a testament to the quality and artistry in the perfume.
Pastiche is currently recruiting new Fragrance Designers to get in on the ground floor of this fast-growing, direct-selling company.
