Questions regarding Lockstone

Q. How strong will my chosen fragrance be?

A. This will vary dependent on the strength of the fragrance itself. Below is a list of fragrance types and their varying strengths:

Perfume: high concentration of essences that see up to 40% of the formula being pure scent.

Eau de Parfum: contains over 15% of pure essence

Eau de Toilette can contain up to around 10% aromatic essence

Eau de Cologne This tends to contain about 7% aromatic essence

Q. How often should I charge my Lockstone?

A. This all depends how strong you want your fragrance to be. In the case of strong fragrances (high concentration of pure scent), you may only wish to charge once or twice a week. For subtler scents, daily to once every few days may be more appropriate.

Q. Can I change fragrance?

A. With the Plus range, you can change the stone to a different fragrance. With the One range, we advise you only use one fragrance

Q. Will Lockstone absorb other scents/smells?

A. We've been testing it for months, wearing it at the gym, out running etc. Tested with both alcohol free and normal alcohol fragrances. We found because the moisture is absorbed and expelled through osmosis, combined with the application of fragrances every 2-3 days, The material didn't seem to hold on to any unwanted smells.

Q. Is Lockstone unisex?

A. Yes, Lockstone is unisex.

Q. Can the scent be washed away?

A. It is possible. It takes a while to completely remove the original fragrance as the scent soaks into the core. It is possible, it just wouldn't be immediate.

Q. When you put a fragrance in, will the smell deplete after a while allowing adifferent fragrance to be added?

A. The fragrance sticks around for quite a long time, so we recommend having one fragrance per stone. You can rinse out the original scent using water, but it takes a very long time to completely remove the scent.

Q. You said it stores aftershave fragrance? How does that work exactly?

A. Lockstone works via capillary action. Water molecules are drawn deep into the material and then allowed to migrate back to the surface through osmosis. Here, the water evaporates and releases the fragrance onto the skin in a slow and controlled manner

Q. Does Lockstone come with a fragrance or is it ‘blank’?

A. Lockstone does not feature a fragrance itself. You will be able to add your own fragrance to the stone to make it truly yours.

Q. Can we use our own fragrances?

A. Absolutely. Lockstone is designed to hold all kinds of fragrances, including solid perfumes also.

Q. Can I use essential oils with Lockstone?

A. We recommend our Nightfall Elite pendant for use with essential oils.
