Learn to make your own perfume with no chemicals
Have you ever thought of making your own perfume? Do you want something that is natural without all the chemicals which are in commercial products? If so, then these workshops will be ideal for you.

This will be a two-hour workshop where you get to create your very own fragrance. You can personalise the perfume with your favourite scents while you discover the art of perfume making through this hands-on workshop. You will make two 30ml bottles of perfume which you can take home at the end of the workshop.

This will be held on Friday 15th February 2019 at 209 Lilyfield Road, Lilyfield. This class will cost $125 and you can learn more and book at this link.

This workshop includes:
2 x 30ml bottles of perfume
All ingredients, equipment and tuition

You can choose from a palette of ingredients to blend together and invent your very own scent.

You may well be someone who cannot go out without first putting perfume on...I know several people like this. Or you may only put it on sometimes and be a novice about knowing anything about perfumes. Whichever one you are, you are sure to enjoy this workshop especially if you like pleasant scents.

The class will be facilitated by Jocelyn Fullerton who take you on a tour through the fabulous world of fragrance and then help you be creative by making your very own perfume.

Jocelyn has a kit of perfumes and ingredients and she will share her secrets about how perfumes are made, the stores behind them and how some precious ingredients are sourced from all over the globe.

Once you have got your palette of smells to work with, you will learn how you can blend the ingredients together to create a perfume. Imagination will help greatly with this part!

Maybe you love the scents of flowers or woods, spices or resins? Maybe you are a foodie and love such smells as chocolate - who doesn't!

You will be given a choice of a large range of fragrance ingredients and these have been specially curated for you to use for this workshop. Jocelyn will then help you with this variety of scents to make your fragrance one of beauty and inspiration.

The class will be on Tuesday 26th February 2019, from 6.30 pm to 9.00 pm at the corner of Cleveland and Eveleigh Streets, Redfern.

The cost of this interesting class is $140 and you can book your place at this link.

Included with the cost of this class you will receive the following:

The chance to create a fragrance from the travelling perfume organ
An atomiser or roller bottle of the perfume that you make on the day
Rare and classical fragrances to be sampled in session
Notes on perfume and a guide for olfactory exploration
Scent strips for smelling

You will need to bring something to write with and a notebook, so that you can write down your ideas and the rest will be supplied.
