I would hit up Dapper Dragon owner. He does custom batches on request, or at least has in the past. Also, his soaps are exceptional performers in my experience.

Robert from Local Gent Shaving Co made some great custom soap for me. It was a large quantity, but I'm sure he'd be willing to work with you. PM me if you'd like his email.

I had Tiki do a custom blend for me earlier this year. I think it took 2-3 weeks to have it arrive after payment.

The problem with doing custom scents is that a person's imagining of what a thing should smell like can differ greatly from what it actually smells like.  Especially when the maker cannot guess the proportions that the customer imagines.  Is is mostly cedar?  All components evenly balanced?  Lots of leather or just a hint?  It can take a lot of time and communication to arrive at the right blend, and unless one is ordering a big batch or the maker is interested in adding that custom scent to their regular line, it might not be feasible.

Dapper Dragon does custom work. I know Eric actually liked several of his customers' designs enough to release them publicly.

I have had two customs made from Dapper Dragon, both have exceeded what I expected and are fantastic performers (tallow formula).

My first White Chocolate Orange made it in to his main line up.

My second Bakewell Tart is truely incredible and I know Eric is using this in some soaps and lotions. 

Give it a go, Eric is a great guy to work with.

Completely agree. Eric produced this for me and I couldn't be more pleased. He is a pleasure to work with as well [it was my understanding based on community interest that Eric may do a LE of Obi Hill too.].

Good luck!

Irena Marchu from Ginger's Garden does custom scents as well. She can make them into soaps, creams, aftershaves, balms, and EdC's.

She appears to have the whole Brambleberry fragrance oil catalog at her disposal if your into that type of thing.
