For more than 25 years, a shop in the heart of Troon has been an oasis of stunning fragrances coupled with beautiful accessories that make gifts brimming with thought and love. The current owners, Michelle and Shona, acquired Scentsations in 2020 with the aim of securing its place as the premier independent perfumery in the West of Scotland. With the emphasis on individual customer service, Michelle and Shona pride themselves on their in-depth knowledge of how each fragrance is created by the manufacturer to find what they call the client’s signature scent.

In addition to a broad range of the most recognised fragrances, Scentsations is hugely proud to stock exclusive brands for which they are the only stockist in Scotland.

Michelle and Shona are passionate about supporting and growing the market for local suppliers and for the sale of accessories in particular. In addition to other bespoke jewellery, the shop currently stocks stunning handmade pieces by Rebecca Jewellery who are based in Kinross, and Summers By The Beach, a gorgeous range of fashion jewellery handmade in the neighbouring town of Prestwick.

Recently the shop was delighted to announce a partnership with Dundonald Links Golf Club and the exclusive range of French contemporary styled Parfums de Marley, leading on to a collaboration with the LPGA at the 2023 Trust Golf Women’s Scottish Open to be held at the course from 28th-31st July.

Michelle and Shona see approachability as the key to their success. You may have a fragrance that you would never think of changing or you may like certain notes that some perfumes and aftershaves give you but are unsure if other fragrances hold the same appeal. A visit to Scentsations may open up new unexpected avenues or confirm your passion for your favourite brand, but the fun is in exploring the beautiful options.
