In this fun, fascinating and practical one-day workshop you'll be introduced to the magical world of natural perfumery by a professional perfumer. 

Join us for a morning tour of perfume-related plants and flowers in the Gardens, led by one of our award-winning volunteer guides. You'll then spend the afternoon creating and making your very own perfume from scratch. You will learn how to blend and pour your perfume into a beautiful glass bottle to take home with you. 

An extensive range of pure essential oils, such as rose, geranium and jasmine will be available to sample and you’ll be able to learn about the different fragrance families.

Under expert guidance, discover how to structure and make your perfect perfume blend, using only essential oils and perfumers' alcohol.
