Scent Design for Brands

In this hands-on, expert-led workshop you’ll find your ‘nose’ as well as learn, analyse and describe perfumery ingredients before designing your very own fragrance using a selection of 25 raw materials spanning a full range of olfactory territories.

This workshop is a great introduction into perfumery and suitable for people at any level.

We want you to leave with a signature scent that is something you love, wearable and is entirely yours.

About the workshop:

Each workshop is structured around a methodology that uses perfumery expertise, industry-based techniques, logic and fosters your intuition to lead you to create a fragrance that is unique and bespoke to you. We also keep your formula, enabling you to re-order your fragrance in 50ml refills.

Take home:

You will leave with your own bottle of bespoke fragrance and its formula, your workbook filled with information discussed during the class.

Any questions? Get in touch or read our FAQs.

Please note that the workshops involve the use of perfumery ingredients, those with allergies and sensitivities are advised to take this into consideration. Read our health and safety points before signing up.

What you take home

Each participant will leave with their own 12ml lab bottle of the fragrance they have created and named on the day and its formula with a workbook filled with information discussed during the class.

All formula can be individually re-ordered for £65 for a 50ml Eau de Toilette.

Reviews & quotes

“Had an absolutely incredible experience at EPC. Emmanuelle is not only extremely knowledgeable, but a great teacher. She really broke down the barriers to what can be a very obscure art. I’m so pleased with the perfume I made, I’ll definitely be returning.”

– Cath, creator of Garden Party

“I’d highly recommend the Experimental Perfume Club! Emmanuelle is a fantastic teacher with a wealth of information. The workshop was creative, informative and thought-provoking. “
