You’ll create and perfect your own fragrance with one-to-one expert consultation along the way. We’ll explore in detail a selection of 40 perfumery ingredients and you will be free to browse over two hundred from our lab to achieve your perfect blend.

Along the way, you’ll find your ‘nose’ and leave with a stronger understanding of fragrance composition, what you like and you dislike and an enriched descriptive vocabulary for your sense of smell.

This is a hands-on workshop where participants are guided to blend themselves, guided during the full session by the perfumer at EPC in a one-to-one.

Suitable for any level and ideal for individuals, couples or private groups

What people say

“SO MUCH FUN. I have been in the fragrance industry for over 20 years in the candle business, yet I have never actually created a fragrance. I thought that was only for the Perfumers who know all of the mysterious secrets of the art. Emmanuelle is so knowledgeable and such a wonderful teacher. We had a private group of 5 and I basically dragged everyone else to the workshop. To their surprise they all loved the experience and couldn’t stop talking about it afterwards.”

– Lynette, Creator of London Tears

“Jo and I had such a wonderful time with you.  We both found the experience so fascinating and also very moving. Thank you so much!”

– Katie Fforde, Romance Novalist

“My new perfume is divine! It’s wrapping me up in it’s smell, like a great big hug!”

– Jo Thomas, Romance Novalist

“Creating your own bespoke fragrance is an interesting and intriguing experience. Finally I can wear a perfume that reveals myself. Very happy and satisfied, thanks!”

    I did this course with my friend and found it fascinating. We both learned so much and created fragrances that summed up our different personalities. It would make a wonderful present for someone special. Highly recommend.

    Did this with a group of friends and loved it. Our instructor was patient and it was informative. Been trying to recreate a better version of my go to fragrance and I did just that. Haven’t stopped wearing it. And the 50ml bottle branding is so pretty.

    I have been fortunate enough to have a few bespoke masterclass sessions with Emmanuelle. Not only are they exciting and informative they are equally challenging (but in a good way). Emmanuelle is able to share her vast knowledge to help you create something that is very personal but that ‘works’ for want of a better word. She let’s you drive the scent the way you had perhaps envisioned but gives you just the perfect amount of guidance. Very highly recommended and certainly a unique and satisfying experience.

    I did a bespoke masterclass with Emmanuelle. It was a fantastic experience. Emmanuelle has a tonne of experience which she passes on to you, without spoonfeeding. I really felt I understood what goes into a fragrance, the different scents and how they work together and how to build a fragrance. It was then super fun to make my own unique fragrance at the end…which I love. The atmosphere was lovely and relaxed and for 3-4 hours I was able to forget about the world outside and focus on something beautiful. Really recommend and for someone with Emmanuelle’s experience you would expect to pay thousands for a one-on-one session.
