03 | The Sex of Scent 

Love Has a Nose
The close links between perfume, sex and seduction have been forged over a long period of time and are rooted in myths, beliefs, religion and medicine. Is perfume still gendered today and, if so, what olfactory form does this gendering take? What mechanisms guide our nostrils towards some people but not others, whether they’re wearing perfume or not? We delve into the subject of gender and olfactory attraction, through the prism of history, marketing, anthropology, sociology and biology.

Returns

We do not accept returns of perfumes, simply because perfumes can't be resold once they've been opened and used. We encourage you to order samples before purchasing full bottles of perfume. And here's the good news — with every sample purchased, we'll send you a coupon code that allows you to redeem the cost of the sample and sample shipping if you buy a full bottle of the fragrance you tried (in other words, you get $10 off).

Please contact orders@ministryofscent.com if you have a question or issue related to your order or shipping.

Sample Orders

Samples are designed to help you evaluate scents you might want to later purchase as a full bottle. You may order one sample per fragrance, up to 15 total in a single order. Samples are non-refundable.

Complimentary Samples

We provide complimentary samples with $75+ full bottle purchases. You may request up to 3 samples with any qualifying order. Please use the Order Note section on the Shopping Cart page to let us know which complimentary samples you would like. We'll try to provide the scents you've requested, but substitutions may occur if items are out of stock.
