Perfume Design Challenge

Whether it's Essence of Detour, Eau de Mildred Pierce, or The Postman Always Smells Twice, you're sure to be shocked by what you come up with at today's Perfume Design Challenge, dedicated to fragrances created with film noir as their inspiration. The institute challenges you to create your own perfume with its custom-curated palette of scents ­— using top notes of intrigue, middle notes of betrayal and base notes of murder ­— no matter what your skillset or level of knowledge about doomed dames or growling gunsels. And if you do goof up while making your perfume, forget it. It's Chinatown.
