My Mission

Scent Grail is a personal blog from Marin Kristic dedicated to you, the perfume enthusiast and connoisseur in search for that “One“, your personal perfect perfume.

The main focus and goal of this blog will be helping you find that rare fragrant unicorn for yourself. 

I will also talk about perfume reviews, recommendations, do giveaways for Scent Grail readers, and my personal top lists for each season and occasion. 

Last but not least, Scent Grail Learning Center is a place for exploration of topics such as:

  • How to wear perfumes
  • Perfume buying Tips&Tricks
  • Perfume related products
  • Perfume History
  • Various experiments with perfume

… and much more!

Why Should You Read This Blog?

The story of Scent Grail began in 2020. as a desire to share my knowledge with the fragrance community, and further learn about the hypnotic world of the perfume.

With so many perfumes coming out each year, this hobby can get overwhelming pretty fast, so to save you some money and time, I have decided to focus on things that matter the most, quality and authenticity.

I always go by my term “must-check” rather than “must-have” perfume. We all have different tastes and opinions which makes the perfume world much more interesting and expressive. 

I hope that you will join me on our mutual Scent Grail journey!

Since 2014. I got more engaged in this hobby by sharing my reviews and personal perfume opinions on fragrance forums. While other activities included doing a daily research on perfumes.

Besides my perfume passion, I’m an amateur long-distance runner, book worm, and a fan of  Wes Anderson, David Fincher, and Quentin Tarantino movies. Some of my other hobbies include stoicism, bicycles, and SEO.
