One could say that the art of a perfumer is to make poetry with molecules...
In this Fragrance Masterclass, we will explore both the technical and creative aspects of fragrance creation and olfaction to develop a scent that is uniquely yours.
We will smell fragrance materials, develop olfaction techniques, and learn how to build your scent memory to enhance your creativity as well as perfume-making skills. We will learn:
  • How perfume materials are made
  • How perfumers learn to smell and build their scent memory
  • Fragrance family groups and how to recognise them (floral, woody, aromatic, etc.)
  • How to choose ingredients to build a harmonious composition into a perfume.
After a refreshing break, you will then make a fragrance that is uniquely yours to take home. Each person will take home a 30mL perfume that we have worked together to make.
Rather than a didactic approach, my focus is on collaboration, nurturing your creativity and confidence. I like to take extra care to ensure that each person feels happy with their scent. You will come away with new ideas, lots of knowledge, as well as confidence and inspiration to keep exploring the beautiful world of fragrance. This workshop is suitable for both beginners and experienced perfume lovers as I tailor our workshop to each person in the group so that everyone feels looked after.
Any fragrances created on the day will also be kept on file so that you can have more made up for you later from the Atelier.
Cult of Scent is an accessible venue. If you require any assistance, please let us know.
If you would like to arrange a bespoke session, please get in touch.

What you'll get
