What you will do
You will learn about the history of perfume, fragrance extraction, and the future of smells. Step by step, this workshop covers information on raw materials, molecules, dilutions, and altogether covers the basic strategies for perfume blending. By mixing top, middle and base notes, you will compose your own 10 ml perfume with the help of a scent library.
Note: We also offer other workshops on smell. If aside from perfuming, you would like to learn more about fragrance extraction, check out our Distilling a Scent Bouquet workshop the same day.
Frank Bloem is an artist who uses scent as his primary medium. He studied Fine Arts at the Rietveld Academy. In the summer of 2016, Frank changed his focus from visual art to olfactory-based works and started The Snifferoo. This perfume laboratory is a place for education and experiments around scent. He made several personalised perfumes, hosts regular workshops, and has recreated the elephant smell of Artis, the Amsterdam Zoo.
