Fodor's Review

Behind the now nearly defunct International Bazaar, the quiet and elegant Perfume Factory occupies a replica 19th-century Bahamian mansion—the kind built by Loyalists who settled in the Bahamas after the American Revolution. The pink interior resembles an old-world tasteful drawing room. This is the home of Fragrance of the Bahamas, where you can find a large variety of perfumes, lotions, and colognes. Its biggest-selling Pink Pearl cologne actually contains conch pearls, and Sand cologne for men has a little sterilized Grand Bahama island sand in each bottle. Take a free 10-minute tour of the mixology laboratory and bottling area and get a free sample. For $30 an ounce, you can blend your own perfume using any of the 35 scents ($15 for 1½ ounces of blend-it-yourself body lotion). Sniff mixtures until they hit the right combination, then bottle, name, and take home the personalized potion.
