Be inspired by your botanic surroundings on a fun and fascinating workshop exploring the world of natural perfumery. 

Learn about the different fragrance families, and under expert guidance from professional Perfumer Sara Lucia, create your very own unique fragrance to take home.

In this 2.5 hour workshop you’ll learn the secrets and techniques behind natural perfumery, sample a range of essential oils and give your nose a workout with an ‘Aroma Identification’ game. 

At the end of the workshop you’ll take home an elegant bottle of 24ml perfume you have created, a formula for your unique scent and new skills and sense of smell to better appreciate essential oils.
