In for a sniff

Step inside the sweet-smelling world of the newly launched blk Scents.

Something has been happening right under our noses. While local beauty brand blk cosmetics distracted us with trips to Sydney, product photos against the most iconic global landmarks, and swatching parties care of co-founder Anne Curtis-Smith herself, little did we know that the wildly successful makeup label’s been developing their very own line of scents.

We caught first whiff of blk Scents through social media just at the end of September, but the fresh-smelling sub-brand’s already coming in strong.

Sniff your heart out at the blk Scents pop-up in Market! Market!, where four conceptual rooms represent each of the line’s four body mist scents: Summer, Spring, Fall and Winter.

Inspired by all things Korean, the 220sqm. experiential space is fodder for any Instagram feed. After visitors make the most of the interactive areas, they can also shop for their very own 250ml blk Scents body mist in the venue, with a 10 percent discount.
