S(m)elling Like a Rose

College stores are always looking for unique new products. Something that has a unique connection to the students or campus.

Well, the folks at the University of Alberta Bookstore (Edmonton, Canada) have created something truly distinctive--their own perfume!

Created by The Pampered Rose, "08" is custom fragrance created from the following individual scents:

Top: Ambrosia, Marigold, Dandelion
Middle: Bamboo, Rose, Hydrangea, Sugar, Tulip
Base: Bamboo (Again), Rose, Pikaki, Sugar

Store staff worked with The Pampered Rose to custom build the fragnace to their specifications, and designed their own label. They retail the fragrance for just under $40 for a 75ml/2 oz eau de parfume.

To find out a bit more, watch this vlog ("video blog") clip prepared by the folks at the Univ. of Alberta Bookstore exclusively for The Retail Muse!

Interested? The Pampered Rose is in Stephens City, VA, and may be reached at or online at
