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 you would like to learn more about fragrance extraction, check out our Distilling a Scent Bouquet workshop on the same day.
