I thought the scent bar at this bridal shower was such a genius idea. If you agree, nudge your maid-of-honor in the direction of San Francisco's SenSpa. Their new Wellness Apothecary is now offering custom perfume blending parties, which would be uber fun for a bridal shower or low-key bachelorette party. The spa's master aromatherapist will explain the holistic benefits of the various essential oils, and then you and your guests will get to experiment with the offerings at the aromatherapy bar. At the end of the party, each person is presented with their own gift-wrapped, custom-blended perfume. The cost is $150 per person (10 maximum), and for an extra fee, the spa can arrange for food and drinks. Easy! To book a party, just call the front desk at 415-441-1777. —Lauren Matthews, editor, Brides Northern California
