I am so happy to have stumbled upon Ministry of Scent. As a fragrance collector with a quickly growing collection, this store is everything I've been looking for. I'm always impressed with the selection along with the amazing customer service from all employees as this location!

Ministry of Scent has so many great fragrances, including ones that can be hard to find in the US. Their staff is also really thoughtful and helpful! I definitely recommend checking them out (whether at the store or on the website).

Do not walk. RUN to Ministry of Scent. This one was THE coolest and best experience I've ever had with shopping for perfume. Overall one of the coolest experiences I've ever had! You will smell scents you have NEVER smelled before. Do yourself a favor and get a perfume that is unique to you, and trust me you will find it here. Also Michael the store manager is so so so helpful and sweet. Made me have the absolutely best experience here. Will definitely be coming back when I need my next bottle.

The best. Knowledgeable, friendly staff. Authentic... Best fragrance shopping experience of my life. Will definitely keep returning. Opposite of everything fake, pretentious, snooty, and off-putting about department store fragrance departments, while maintaining elite products and database of knowledge and suggestions and wise network of sellers.

This place is dope! Haven’t come across an obscure fragrance yet that these guys don’t have. Fast shipping, fair prices and what seem to be carefully selected samples that accompany your order that will keep you coming back for new smells you didn’t know about!

First of all, the selection is fantastic, you could spend days in the store sampling and narrowing down your selections.

Secondly, the service makes it one of the best shopping experiences I’ve had. The sales associates are like obsessed fellow customers rather than transactional conduits, they’re as excited to discover the scents with you and as you are yourself. There’s no pretentiousness whatsoever...

If you are into niche fragrances and perfumes, this store is a must when visiting San Francisco. Their product line is from all over the world and you’ll find brands not available anywhere else. I highly recommend this store. This store is very unisex as well so go as a couple or go alone. I promise you will purchase multiple bottles, you won’t be able to decide which is your favorite.

Ministry of Scent is truly fantastic, and a wonderful introduction into the world of independent, niche perfumes.... I personally am not a niche/indie fragrance neophyte (though by no means an expert), and I observed the same amount of care, attention, and interest in working with me as I did with other customers who were just starting their "fragrance journeys".  I highly, highly recommend stopping by and investing some actual time into learning about what's out there, and what works for you.

My friends and I stumbled upon this gem... We came in with nothing in mind, and had minimal knowledge about scents and what we enjoyed. We all purchased samples of scents that we truly enjoyed and will be testing them out. We'll definitely be back to purchase a full sized perfume soon! Great service all around and we truly enjoyed this experience.
