I'm so glad you're here! (And yes, this is the new site for ESCENTUELLE!)

Hi! I'm Carolyn, the creative force behind By Carolyn Dunne. Each day I strive to connect women with their true selves through my custom perfume experience, one-of-a-kind jewelry, and personal development community.

Is it time for you to step into who you truly are, to figure out what fires you up and decide what - and who - deserves your time and energy, so that you can shine your unique light to the world?

Then you've come to the right place!


Keep Me in the Loop!

Carolyn talks about changes due to COVID-19


Not only can you still create your own custom perfume, you can choose from a selection of one-of-a-kind jewelry that I've designed and crafted and soon participate in classes (both in-person and online)!

"I thoroughly enjoyed the private one on one experience and felt confident about the scent I created, because of the time we spent together on it. Carolyn is a legitimate genius in her field. If you thought having a name brand label made you fancy, try having your own label. The coolest part to me is that it's all local. While supporting a local business, you can make something so special and unique that is truly a fantastic product. "

"Carolyn, you are a sorceress! I can’t stop sniffing my arm, where I sprayed my custom scent after gleefully ripping open the package this afternoon! I LOVE IT, THANK YOU SO MUCH! I will treasure this luxurious fragrance, created with so much thought and care and attention from you."

"Hands down, making my custom wedding perfume was one of the most fun experiences I’ve ever had! I was so nervous to begin (because I don’t ever wear perfume) but Carolyn was there to guide us every step of the way! She is so bright and bubbly—and the shop is adorable! I’ll also add that my husband (so exciting to say!) has terrible allergic reactions to almost every perfume, candle, and essential oil I’ve ever tried to wear . . . until this one! Now I wear it every day!"
