Science is one of those subjects that notoriously finds it hard to attract admirers. I don’t mind admitting I hated it at school, and my little boy Joe now states it is his worst subjects, and that he hates Thursday because this is Science day. Clearly it is having a bad rap, so anything that makes it more interesting and fun has to be a good thing. Which is why the Wild Science Kits from Flair are such a fabulous idea.
The Perfume Factory is perfect for anyone with an interest in creating their own scents and pot pourri. It comes with all the equipment and ingredients to create your own signature scent and even has a lovely little glass bottle in case you want to present on of your creations as a gift. The set has 5 small bottles for experimenting with different scent combinations, which you can create by extracting and blending your own formulas. The set comes with an array of real base notes and top notes just like real perfumes are made.
You can also create perfumed Ruby Gel Pot Pourri with this kit as a red colouring and crystals are also included. All the equipment fits very neatly into the pink storage unit which means you do not have to keep putting everything back into the box after each use. This is a fabulous way to promote real science by making it fun and creative, and also putting it into a real life concept with a very desirable end product – who doesn’t love perfume?
The instructions are easy to use and follow, and also include details and information on how to do a patch test with each new fragrance. Even though the kit is recommended for children aged 8+, adult supervision is still recommended with this toy.
This kit is just lovely, a great gift idea at £14.99, and currently available at Smyths Toys.
