Souade was an exceptional teacher and the class was really lovely. It was incredibly impressive to watch her magic with the scents and formulations.

The Teacher was lovely and it was a nice small class. The Teacher was very knowledgeable and approachable. There was quite a bit of information which, while explained well, was a lot to take in. Some information sheets would have been nice to take home. Overall, it was a great experience.

Such a great and exciting experience to create your own perfume! We went through the whole process, we chose the scents we liked, we blended them together and tried few different ratios until we were happy with our very own perfume! How cool it is to go home with your own creation and wear it with pride! Thank you!

Megan Collins Apr 2024


I previously did the perfume workshop and wanted to see how the solid perfume was done. Also make another personal scent again
Our teacher was lovely. She was extremely knowledgeable and explained everything in depth but not overloaded as this is quite a science.
We had plenty of time to explore and create our own personal scented perfume to take home.

Seren Tabak Mar 2024


Really enjoyed the process, everyone was really friendly and approachable and I loved the scent I ended up creating! Would definitely recommend as a gift to a perfume enthusiast!

Deborah Kidane Mar 2024


Loved the space
Class size was good
Huge range of notes to chose from
Biggest drawback for me was the longevity of the final product.

Teacher's response

Thank you for your feedback, Deborah, we are glad to hear you loved the spacious perfume studio and the comfortable class size. It's great to know that you appreciated the wide range of notes available.
We are sorry to hear the longevity of the fragrance does not match your expectations. Have you tried the advice given during the class by our Perfumer? As the fragrance was made a few days ago, it still needs time to mature and adjust; the odor profile will be set in a month, and the longevity will improve. As a friendly reminder, our body reacts with the scents we apply on, our sudation, pH, and skin interact differently, and the scent might be altered. We recommend spraying the perfume on your clothes to avoid those interactions and keep the odor profile as close as when in the bottle.
Let us know how you find your scent once applied this way, and thanks for sharing your thoughts with us!

Samantha Pannell Mar 2024


The teacher was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. She carefully guided us through the steps and helped us customise our perfume as we liked. The scent range was great and the studio was gorgeous!

Hannah Belonio Feb 2024


Attended the solid perfume making workshop as a gift to a friend and we loved it. It was so fun learning about how perfumes are made and building our own scents! Especially love how they save our scent and we have the choice of recreating it with other forms like candles and perfume (spray version). We definitely would go back again. The instructors were friendly and knowledgeable and provided clear instructions.

Rahul Ramesh Jan 2024


Was great - learned a lot from the class and left with a perfume I loved. Was an anniversary gift and my partner loved it.

Organised this for a friend’s birthday. Something unique and extravagant that we had never tried before. Our instructor was very knowledgeable and the resources were well set up so it was very easy for us beginners. I didn’t expect to learn so much about the science of perfumery in addition to having access to beautiful natural ingredients. This particular workshop was a bit pricier compared to others offered by Class Bento. But overall we are obsessed with our new perfumes !

Casper Walker Jan 2024


Teacher was comprehensive, articulate and interesting to listen to. Felt hands-on and engaging finding the scents selection ourselves and being guided how to balance the perfume.

Tiffany Button Dec 2023


Great class. Wish we had more time to create personalised scents. Also might be helpful to ask students to think about scents they like/bring ones they prefer and get help from teachers on understanding what they are are combinations of.

Larissa Miller Dec 2023


Interesting world of fragrances, very beautiful stylish studio, lovely french tutor.
I think 2 hours is not enough, although our tutor stayed overtime and helped, it feld like more explanation on how to combine, how it works would be helpful - if any longer workshops, I would love to attend.

Went with some friends for an activity day out and this class was awesome. We were all able to walk away with our own signature scents, the teacher was amazing and the place itself was beautiful. Would do again!

Fiona Weegink Nov 2023


What an amazing experience my friend and I had learning the art of creating perfume. Upon entering, it is like walking into a French Perfumery. Everything was organised and our teacher articulated instructions well. It’s an exceptional class to involve yourself in and my friend and I will be back with our husband’s to allow them to create their very own scent as well.

The teacher was very friendly and made us feel welcome on arrival
The venue was fantastic, clean, had a great perfume aroma with all the material that we needed already set up
The experience was good but would have like to make 2 candles not just one
I learned how much oils I needed to put into melted wax to make a really nice aromatic candle
I really enjoyed the small group atmosphere

Ruskin Black Sep 2023


Very happy with the workshop and the candle I made, so happy with the knowledge passed on and made me confident to continue to make more candles.

This class is brilliant, we have booked many times! It is so much more satisfying creating you own personalised perfume than buying off the shelves! Thank you

Beck Cleeland Aug 2023


Bought this as a birthday gift for my partner and we loved it! The setting is beautiful and relaxing. The hosts were very knowledgeable and we got some really interesting facts about some of the elements that went into our scents. So many elements to choose from and lots of great advise from the hosts. A really great experience, good for a gift, hens party, a date or just something different to do.

Jackie McBride Aug 2023


Excellent wonderful morning !
Thanks to the ladies for their knowledge
10/10 will be back

Took the wife for an anniversary gift and would highly recommend to anyone. The teacher explained everything really well and it was an enjoyable way to spend a Saturday morning.

honestly, i think they may have bitten of more than they can chew. a large class and only one teacher. we didn't really learn anything about perfumery i don't know about base notes, middle notes or top notes. and i'm equally confused by candle making all we really did was scramble for scents from an admittedly extraordinary stack of extracts and essential oils, got told how many drops of what to put in, then poured pre heated wax over it all and that was that.
i have no idea what temperature it was or what it was made of or how to create a balanced perfume. the space is BEAUTIFUL and the spread of aromas is insane, over 100, but there just wasn't any time to learn or really ask questions. i think this would be absolutely a perfect class if it had fewer students and a solid educational platform for how perfumes are created and/or how candles should be made.
book privately.
this would be a really good way to do an office bonding session or a family activity i guess i just had higher expectations for the price. if you're spending $200 on one candle, you want to walk away with the knowledge to recreate it.
lovely teacher, theres just no way one person can teach that many students in any detail.

This was such a fun class! You not only learn the candle making process but you learn all about scents and the composition of certain fragrances. The MetaScent workshop is an amazing atmosphere and there were over 100 scents to choose from in creating your final product - a personalised candle. I also loved the label for our candles that we got with our names on them!

Noelz David Jun 2023


The workshop was educational for me in terms of finding out about different notes and how it blends with others. I liked the environment and the teacher was great. Attentive and patient.

This was a wonderful way to spend a rather wet Saturday. The work space was very welcoming and warm. The teacher was so knowledgeable and made me feel very at ease and nothing was too difficult. Definitely a class worth attending. I left not only with my own personalised solid fragrance but with lots of new found knowledge and knowing I could re-order my own fragrance in different formats. Simply divine. Just do it. You won’t regret it

I was bought a solid perfume making workshop for my birthday and it was a fab experience. The trainer was very knowledgeable, the venue was lovely and I came away with a gorgeous personalised scent! Would definitely recommend!

Eleni Donnelly Mar 2023


The teacher was lovely! Knowledgeable, approachable and amiable. The room was impeccable, with all equipment & products well placed and easy to see.
I very much enjoyed the whole experience other than struggling a little with the odour in the room. I recommend that people who are sensitive to smell regularly go outside for fresh air.
I love the candle that my teacher helped me create exactly how I imagined. Thank you! A well worth course and excellent gift idea.

Joshua Shub Mar 2023


Great session with a very knowledgeable teacher.

Fantastic number of scents to choose from to create a personal perfume.

Only improvement would be to allow slightly more time to choose scents, as this felt a tiny bit rushed (but I understand that the class only has limited time).

Thanks!

Fun couple of hours that flies by.
The team give you base instructions and then let you run wild of the scents.
Coming back to help focus and harness your favourites into a smell unique to you.

Great array for both women and men.

Kelly Kesby Nov 2022


The space was lovely and the class was great. The teacher was very knowledgeable and we had a great time mixing our scents.

Emily Atkins Nov 2022


This was fantastic! There is no way you are walking out without a candle you like…
We had loads of fun sniffing things we had heard of AND things we hadn’t, testing out combinations and ratios, and thinking about the different notes we wanted in our home.
Led by a perfumier trained in France, we felt as though we were in excellent hands!

Terrence Wilcox Nov 2022


Unfortunately had a head cold developing and my sense of smell was virtually nil. I found the course was informative and well delivered by our French instructor The environment was pleasant and well laid out. The back up assistant was equally pleasant who didn't have a English name, but very polite and knowledgeable, I attempted to produce a masculine aftershave, but having limited ability to evaluate the odour of my concoction and still recovering from this "URTI". one question if I should wish to obtain duplicate copies, how difficult is this and what costs are involved? Best Regards Terrence Wilcox.

The teacher gave clear explanation about what we were doing and the reasons for choosing base, middle and top notes, which I had been unclear about before. The venue was lovely and so were the oils used. Cost of the course was reasonable.

The overall experience was good, finding the venue and parking was a bit difficult but once inside the studio was beautiful.
The information portion was thorough though a bit redundant at times, but I understand it’s to avoid misunderstandings no matter how simple it may seem. My favourite part was being able to smell the scents and decide which ones will be part of my formula, though this part felt a little rushed despite us finishing 20 minutes early. Overall I did enjoy the experience and like having a solid perfume at the end of it.

Siew Ng Oct 2022


The teachers and assistant were friendly and approachable. I appreciate the wide range of scents we were able to smell and choose from to create our own perfume. Each of these scents has the top / middle / base note labelled on their bottles which help beginner like me to differentiate. I definitely like it that we were given sufficient time to create and bring home a 50ml perfume. The environment was pleasant and conducive for a workshop. I also like the idea that we were to start thinking of a theme for our perfume which would help to guide our design in the session.

From start to finish the whole experience at Metascent was incredible. Situated in a beautiful space you are warmly welcomed as your senses are invigorated by all the varying scents.

For the price of most bottles of perfume you get this amazing curated experience and a bottle of perfume tailored specifically to you. This class was absolutely fantastic and the space is stunningly beautiful. The teachers where informative and helpful in creating our own fragrances. Offering you there advice and expertise when the sheer number of options seems like too much. My partner and I will be definitely coming back when we need our next bottle of perfume. 10/10 would recommend.

When we first arrived I worried that my 12-year-old would be out of their depth, but the instructor was fantastic and catered so well to everyone's individual needs in a diverse age range. The instructor had such great knowledge and was delightful. Came away with the most beautiful product, even with a personalised label. We will definitely go back again. Highly recommended!

Yen, one of the founders of Metascent, guided us through the class today. I created a citrusy herbal scent that was very calming and soothing. There was enough solid perfume to fill an extra lip balm container. They know just what to add to balance and enhance the fragrance you’ve made. Very enjoyable.

I chose the same fragrances I used for the morning candle making class because I love it so much. After trying some of the more citrusy scents like orange top and pamplamer which is derived from a sweet pomelo blend I learned, I might attempt a citrus tone for the solid perfume class next weekend. But then again I don’t want to end up smelling like a kitchen antibacterial spray? Bring on the romance, imagination and creativity of the next perfume class!

Walked away with a divine bottle of perfume I was really proud of and cant wait to try out. Gorgeous afternoon to spend with your family or friends and learn at the same time. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Absolutely worth it. It's very interesting to be able to create the scent you like in a very relaxing way of learning doing it Highly recommended!
