In this fun and relaxed class, you'll get to blend odourants, such as musk, neroli, jasmine and much more. Play with different combinations and embark on a mesmerising journey of discovery, where the destination is a perfume that you love, perhaps one that you might say is an extension of yourself. Your scent. Suitable for both genders!

You'll start with a brief history of perfume, and learn about our sense of smell, and its intimate connection with emotions and memory. We'll discuss how perfume is layered using odourants that evaporate at different rates, and you'll learn handy tips on fragrance making.

As you apply perfume, you'll first encounter the top note, since it's made up of highly volatile odourants. Choose from the same odours used by major perfume houses, and blend them until you have a fragrance that is close to your soul.

The next stage is to mix the heart note. Again, you'll choose and mix odourants until you feel that that the perfume is in tune with your own heart.

The base note of the perfume is what endures and lingers. Woody, musk and amber are predominant odourants for this note.

Within each layer, you'll get to choose from lots of different odours, and you'll have plenty of time to smell them all, to find and test the ingredients and blend that appeals most to you. Your teacher, Joseph, will give you one on one feedback and will assist you to balance and fine-tune your concoction if you like, but otherwise you'll be free to explore and let your creativity run wild.

You'll take home two 30ml bottles of perfume (valued at $120 each). Perfect as a heartfelt and unique gift, for someone special (or for yourself). Glass spray bottles are provided.

This class is priced at $125 per person, so get in quick while it’s at the opening special price of $99. For private events, our venue can accommodate 35+ guests.

Chocolatier since 1994


My name is Joseph, and I started Kimberley Chocolates to produce high quality chocolates in Sydney. I held a BSc in Food Science, and wanted to make great chocolate more accessible to our community, including by combining it with flavours like chilli, lemon myrtle, and quandong (Australia's 'native peach'). Kimberley Chocolates won the gold award at the Royal Easter Show Chocolate Competition, and I started to appear on the media more often. People started contacting me to learn more about chocolates, and I realised that there is a great need for chocolate education, and that's where our chocolate workshops started.

I also spent some time in the laboratories of perfume houses before, where I gained some interesting skills in fragrance making, which I love to share.

My teaching style is playful and fun, and very hands on - the more sampling and laughing that happens, the better!

Joseph was a very passionate teacher who had a lot of knowledge on perfumes. This activity was super enjoyable and very different I would definitely recommend this class for people who are wanting something a bit unique. You get to go home with two perfumes of your own creation. It was so cool to see how different everyone's creations was. I cant wait to wear my new perfumes out.

The studio was absolutely wonderful - it was great to get an insight into how perfume is made and dabble around and create something for ourselves - our own signature scent! Joseph was fantastic - very helpful - passionate - clear - and listened intensively! With all the fails in the class he was able to sit down individually and solve the problems. Would definitely do again and recommend to others!

Had actually booked this class in as party of a hens party/event and its with my pleasure to say all the girls had thoroughly enjoyed themselves! Joseph's class was incredible and super informative and gave us a brief history of how fragrance came about and much more. Loved how we were able to create a couple of fragrances either for ourselves or for our party and found this was a great take home gift for the girls who attended the event! Joseph was also super accomodating with all the plans prior which made the booking and setting up process with such ease. Would highly recommend the class to those looking for something different and personalised! Thank you Joseph!

The fragrance class was heaps of fun! It was very hands on and we were encouraged to be creative, but our teacher Joseph also gave us guidance and he really helped me to understand how perfumes work. His style was very relaxed and he made our small group feel at ease. The class itself was surprisingly good value because we got to take our creations home. I actually want to to do it again so I can come up with more combinations!

This is a fun interactive informative sensory fest. Should have brought my 13 year old but got to go home with scents and a little more clarity about what I like and confirm what I don’t like. Joseph (Teacher) let’s you get on with it and available for questions and suggestions.
