Perfume Making Workshops

My perfume making workshops give you a fantastic and unique opportunity to find out more about the perfume making process, create a perfume of your own and explore the creative possibilities of fragrance in a fun and informal way.


I begin by describing my approach to perfume making, which I look at from a contemporary art perspective. I then give a working demonstration of how to make a 50ml eau de toilette (EDT). I also explain about fragrance notes, fragrance families, and how to achieve a successful fragrance blend. You will then have a go at making your very own perfume choosing from a wide range of oils; the result is a perfume in a spray bottle you can take home on the day.

My workshops are a great introduction into the art of perfumery and a great way of learning a new skill and creating something truly unique.
