Design In Scent was founded by Gemma in early 2015, having evolved from a multi-sensory events company to focus solely on the aromatic. She’s worked with brands such as The Arts Club and Carphone Warehouse to take people on an emotional journey using scent. For Gemma, our neglected sense of smell is crucially important, utterly indulgent and entirely rebellious, and quite unlike our other senses.
