What is perfumery?

What are perfume oils and flower waters and how are they made?

What do perfumes do for us mentally, emotionally and physically, and how do we know this traditionally and scientifically?

In this hands-on workshop, the ancient art of perfumery meets the contemporary science of aromatherapy. We'll sample dozens of essential oils and discover why and how they work.

At this comprehensive workshop you'll learn about:
• Some history of perfumery and the contemporary science of scent and essential oils
• Plant morphology aka The Doctrine of Plant Signatures
• The principles of perfumery and the secrets of "Notes"

You'll create and go home with a customized:
• Oil-based Perfume
• Eau de Parfum - Alcohol based perfume spray
• Eau de Toilette
• Eau de Cologne / Aftershave
• Eau Fraiche / Deodorizer

You'll go home with 5 custom products created on the principles of ancient perfumery using the information of contemporary science - a $200 value! There's no introductory workshop like this in the city! All materials, take-home items, packaging, handouts, recipes PLUS LUNCH are included.

I'm so happy I took the Joy of Scent workshop yesterday!! It's a miracle that now I'm able to make excellent-smelling Essential Oil blends, which have a purpose. When I got home last night, I opened up several of my previous 'fails' - which I had done my best to make, having researched online various properties, and added missing Top, Middle, and Base notes, which I had learnt about during the workshop, and now those previous 'fails' are now 'wins'! Yay! Highly recommend this workshop!

Thanks for an amazing learning experience and discovery into the world of scent. It is so interesting how just over the course of a few days the perfumes have changed and become a lot stronger and more complex.
