“She was kind to invite me to join for a drink, when we met absolutely randomly & unplanned at the middle of the city. Shame on me, I even didn’t remember her name yet. Well, I was new at work at that time, it was my excuse. That's where our friendship started.”
Numerous, creative projects at work and inspirational brainstorming made us realize, that we, being so different, perfectly complement each other and are a great team.

Even being far from each other, we stayed in close contact in order to reach our dream – build our own company.

“Having met on Bali for Olga’s Birthday, we were sitting once on a beautiful beach, watching the sunset. We already had a plan to launch something together, but on that evening we promised each other that we wouldn’t leave the table before we finalize the concept.”
Our Mindscent Company was born with the brand name Scentception.

how it all started
"When yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift.
That‘s why it‘s called present"
The story is the core for our brand, our inspiration. It emphasises our believes and reasons, why we actually decided to start. With it, same as with our brand, we want to convince you, that everything is possible and the key is the constant work on a growth mindset.
“Why do I believe scents are so powerful for our mind?
When I was growing up I would always spent the holidays at my grandmothers house in Southern Italy. My grandmother made me always do two things: eat and study. She was always saying "Make yourself proud, amore". And I think that her house itself was telling me the same with its particularly lovely smell: sweet, cosy, faithful and motivating, which for me translated into the feeling of safety and confidence.
Couple of years later, when I was traveling with my family along the south coast of France during the month of May, I was incredibly surprised to realise, that the places were some-kind familiar. I felt myself like at home, even though I was there for the first time in my life. I remember sitting in a beautiful garden talking about my future with my mom. I didn't have any particular plan yet, but I remember the feeling of courage I had at that moment and certainty that whatever I choose to do, I would make it happen. That feeling was accompanied with the sweet, narcotic scent, the same as in my grandma's place: It actually was the fragrance of blooming jasmine.
Since that time I was always reinventing the smell of jasmine in my mind, which was like a bridge to the places, which gave me strength, and the invisible successful path through the challenging situations. Only when I became a perfumer, I recognised that unconsciously I trained myself to connect the feeling of confidence with the smell of jasmine. That put a start for the big journey we call: Scentception.
