How to book: Booking is by the hour (2 hour time slots on Saturdays but you are more than welcome to book for more). You are adding to your basket the total number of hours you’d like to attend (i.e : 1 visitor wanting to attend for 2 hours = 2 in the basket, 2 visitors wanting to attend for 2 hours each = 4 in the basket).

Perfumery is all about experimentation, so to give you the freedom to explore the world of fragrance, the EPC Lab hosts open-lab days to the public once a month. We recommend booking a minimum of 2 hours to give yourself time to experiment without feeling rushed.

Differing from our structured and expert-led workshops, the open-lab day puts you in charge. There is no structured guidance and you’ll only receive a basic introduction before starting your session. There will be a perfumer in case you have any questions.

You’ll have access to:

  • a creative perfumery lab environment
  • pipettes, scent strips, formula sheets, scales
  • 1 x 10g empty vial for each hour booked
  • access to over 200 perfumery ingredients (natural & synthetic)

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

  • Suitable for any levels
  • Ideal for beginners or advanced perfume makers

Take home:

  • Your 10g lab bottle(s) of your creations (number depends on the number of hours booked)
  • Your fragrance formula(e)


How do I join:

Book the number of hours you’d like to attend on one of the dates available above.


If you want to stay longer:

Booking is by the hour but don’t worry we won’t put a stopwatch in front of you! If you haven’t finished your trials, we’ll allow a bit of extra time to finish what you’re doing. However, every hour passed 15 min above your time booked is due. If you wish to stay longer on the day and purchase additional hours, we accept card payment at the lab for additional hours wanted only if we are not fully booked.

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

For returning visitors, please note that a fragrance created during a workshop may not be entirely replicable during an open-lab session. We use a small selection of blends during workshops for educative purpose. These blends are not available to use during open-lab sessions but we will indicate the closest available alternative.

Open-lab days cannot be rescheduled and are non-refundable. We don’t provide 50ml refills for creations made during open-lab days.

Because Open-Lab sessions are very busy we don’t accept accompanying visitors who are not participating. 

Please note that the fragrances created during any creation sessions at EPC are for personal use only and not for commercial purpose.
