    This is an excellent half day session – plenty of very well structured teaching, but done in a way to force you also to think for yourself (in a fun way). Very enjoyable and also with expertise on hand so that you won’t stray too far !

    Amazing experience I would absolutely recommend if you are on this page looking to come. Led by the extremely knowledgeable Emmanuelle, who makes the workshop both extremely personable and informative. The attention to detail from the booklet, to the perfume spray and holder you take home, make the whole experience one you will never forget.
