Scent Design for Brands

Perfumery is all about trial and error, so to give you the freedom to explore the world of fragrance, the EPC Lab hosts open-lab days to the public twice a month.

Differing from our structured and expert-led workshops, the open-lab day puts you in charge, allowing you to independently experiment at your own pace.

We provide a creative environment, perfumery materials, scales, 2 empty vials per hour booked ready to be filled with your creations (10ml/10grs bottles) and access to perfumery ingredients.

The EPC Lab is a friendly space where you can encounter other creative souls and perfume makers, sharing your ideas and creations.

How does it work?

After receiving a basic introduction, you’ll be free to browse and use our ingredients (about 100 available). The open-lab sessions are free from supervision, with a focus on personal experimentation. However, there will always be a trained fragrance specialist available to answer the questions you may have.

After booking your preferred number of hours, you’re free to drop in at any time between 1pm – 8pm.

What's included in the open-lab day?

We provide measuring equipment, pipettes, scent strips, formula sheets and empty vials for your fragrance trials. You’ll also have access to over 80 perfumery ingredients.

You will receive two empty vials of 10ml per hour booked. We recommend to book at least 2 hours, giving you time to experiment without feeling rushed. Don’t worry, we won’t put a stopwatch in front of you, and if you haven’t finished your trials, we’ll allow you to finish what you’re doing.
