Virtual Fragrance Consultation

Samuel Gearing and Josh Carter the Founders of Fiole have spent the past 10 years working as fragrance specialist for a variety of luxury brands in store while training under some of the world’s most prestigious perfumery’s. Fiole is the realisation of an idea they had after seeing the fragrance industry come to a halt in the wake of Covid-19. The biggest problem was the obvious that you can’t try a fragrance through a device. So, after what has been the largest professional undertaking both Josh and Samuel have ever done, they have built what they believe to be the missing link for choosing your ideal fragrance online.

Virtual Fragrance Consultation

“Using a blind test, your custom Fiole Box will teach you a simple specialist method to analyse your 6 personal recommendations. Discover your fragrance personality or gift the experience now they’ll never forget.”

Virtual Fragrance Consultation

FIND A FRAGRANCE AS INDIVIDUAL AS YOU ARE

Discover your fragrance personality or gift the experience and unlock a world of scents that are built to match your style and no one else’s

Each Fiole Box is individually customised to your personal taste by using the virtual consultant, The Fiole Fragrance Finder to Discover your Fragrance Personality and receive yours.

When it arrives in the post your box comes with 6 recommendations from a variety of top-quality brands that are accurately matched to your Fragrance Personality and guide you how to analyze them in the same way a specialist would. Did you know, once you’ve found your favourite, you can collect a full size via the website and redeem the cost of your Fiole box.

And when you build your custom Fiole Box through the Fiole Fragrance Finder, you can rest assured that each of your 6 personal recommendations come from a selection of the finest luxury fragrance houses in the world. Give it try for yourself!

How It Work’s

Fiole is designed to do all the hard work for you. With Fiole, you don’t have to have any prior knowledge to be able to find your ideal fragrance. The Fiole Fragrance Finder Virtual Consultant will ask you a series of questions that will vary depending on your choices, to determine your personal taste. It will then translate that into 6 recommendations that will suit your style.

The genius of the Fiole algorithm is that whilst it feels simple its astonishingly accurate. It’s designed to put your choices at the centre readjusting itself with every question to find you the perfect set of recommendations. This way, when your custom Fiole box arrives in the post, the question is not “Which do I like?’ But ‘Which fragrance do I like the most?’

Make Your Gift Feel Unique & Personalised

When it comes to fragrance everyone is different. Don’t risk disappointment by choosing it for them. Instead gift the Fiole experience so your loved one can explore their personality and find something perfect for them, thanks to your generosity.

Fiole Gift Cards themselves come as e-gifts or as lovely made sustainable card booklets. You can gift the Fiole experience on it’s own, or if you’re feeling super generous add a budget for a full size once they’ve found their favourite.

Exclusivity & Traditional Family Heritage

Championing independent brands is hugely important to Fiole. Even all the brands available through Fiole are meticulously curated with passion and integrity as many are family run and from grassroots backgrounds. Not forgetting purchasing through Fiole means supporting independent perfumery houses in the world.

Virtual Fragrance Consultation

Why not let Samuel and Josh give you an introduction to the first online mechanism that can take you through a full, personalised fragrance consultation, just like the one you would get like they’re with you in person is also available by booking an appointment on 2nd Floor Fiole Pop-Up Boutique at Fortnum & Mason London.

But, I strongly advise not to leave it too late because you have until the end of May ‘2022’ Fiole will be transforming part of Fortnum’s famous ‘Scent Room’ with a cutting-edge installation that uses their popular Digital technology to take customers on a sensorial journey of discovery like no other. My favourite Fragrance amongst them all had to be the scent included in my Fiole Discovery Scent Box that’s actually inspired by the Smoking Room at Claridges Hotel in London would you believe it or not. I’ll leave that thought with you to decide and make up your own mind about it. Can you guess which one it is?

HOW I’M STAYING ON TOP OF MY SKINCARE ROUTINE DURING SELF ISOLATION

THE BEST MEN'S SKINCARE PRODUCTS YOU CAN RELY ON TO HOARD IN LOCKDOWN

Essential Men’s Grooming during lockdown to hoard in isolation at home – Get to know my current favourites

You would agree, when it comes to our favourite brands we swear by and pledge loyalty to as we love them too much it’s not possible to feel complete when getting our morning’s off to a good start.

Over the past few months we’ve all had the challenge to adapt to a new life during the Covid 19 pandemic and that includes not going to the shops as normal, but in this case it was only allowed if absolutely necessary for essentials

Men's Skincare

Men's Skincare

For me, I count beauty and grooming products as everyday essentials even though we are used to adhering to our own personal grooming rituals at home before going out. With that said, staying in isolation for long periods of time feels like you’re putting life on hold for the moment but that doesn’t mean you should neglect daily routines and the same goes for grooming. Lucky for me, I’d stocked up on a few things which I already had before the whole country went into lockdown so I have learned at this moment in time to appreciate things allot more.

Men's Skincare

A sneak peak inside my personal toiletries bag with all the essential items I often carry with me to refresh my grooming kit at home or on the go.

This whole experience of the lock down period felt a bit like the War in Britain in comparisons to shortage of food items which was a bit of a culture shock at first. Learning to go without certain items like loo roll which my household was careful to ration at the beginning felt like a luxury until hoarding of this item calmed down a bit. But, with none essential shops having to close consumer and luxury goods were not easy to get hold off even online for that matter, but we just had to make the most of what we have during this time, so here’s what’s inside my personal toiletries bag with all the essential items I often carry with me to refresh my grooming kit at home or on the go.

mens skincare

In situations like staying at home my skin needs to feel refreshed and energized using the following brands which I highly recommend which are no particular order Clinique men’s or women’s to Acqua di Parma products because they just that fabulous once you try them out and work miracles for their individual uniqueness and formulated to suit various skincare types.

Clinique’s dramatically different moisturizing lotion gives my skin that extra feeling of hydration best applied when the skin is moist after a shower to feel refreshed.

When self selecting favourite brands you can’t go wrong with specialist sensitive skincare products out there in the market bearing in mind they custom to your skins condition like mine is prone to in between oily to dry skin combination. Clinique’s dramatically different moisturizing lotion gives my skin that extra feeling of hydration best applied when the skin is moist after a shower to feel refreshed. For me the skin pores open up so the lotion is easily absorbed once gently applied to the face.  Before doing this, once in the shower use the face wash to gently remove any excess oil, grime and dirt gently using hands to let it lather into the layers of skin then rinse off for a deep clean. This product works wonders as a thorough cleanser yet gentle is suitable for normal to dry skin. I love the Men’s skincare range just because Clinque is developed by dermatologist, 100 percent fragrance free and allergy tested.

For this range of Moisturiser, I use dry to combination as my skin sometimes tends to feel oily so this balances out the condition of my skin to improve its appearance.

They don’t call it dramatically different for nothing as it does exactly what it says on the tin. For outside in the garden when being confined to being at home our skin needs vitamin and sun protection from UV rays. Rain or shine Clinique’s Super Energizer SPF 40  is a great gel formula too although some prefer to use other versions in a lotion based on personal preference as it absorbs allot easier I think. I do love the hints of citrus notes in this product which helps to re-energise the skin for that extra boost to protect your skin against the outdoor elements. This one is great for hydrating tired looking skin with anti fatigue concentrate to protect against UVA/B + IR + Blue light defense in one.

And finally onto my one my other favourites let’s mention fragrance because it’s something I always like to have on and it’s always great to smell good for that final touch of luxury to complete any grooming routine. I think it was Tom Ford who said it’s essential to wear fragrance even in bed and I absolutely agree. That invigorating feeling of scented aroma in a room amongst my bed linen is just amazing I tell you from experience with spaying on fragrance favourites. Even when I travel I’ll do the same before going to bed a spruce on Colonia by Acqua di Parma for its hint of freshness on the skin. Just give these products a try I’d like to see how you get on. Just leave comment below for some feedback I’d love to hear your thoughts on your personal grooming recommendations during lock down.
