We’re open to the public on occasional months and provide everything you need to experiment with scent.
Independently and at your own pace, experiment and create fragrances with full access to our ingredient library. Differing from our structured and expert-led workshops, the open-lab days put you in charge.
For curious beginners or more experienced perfume makers. A member of the team is on hand for light guidance if required (note this is not a structured workshop).
Duration: Saturdays 10am – 5pm two hour time slots / Wednesdays 12:30 – 6:30pm anytime drop in

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). There is no refund or reschedule option for the open-lab sessions. You can purchase additional hours once at the Lab if we’re not fully booked.
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
- Your 10g lab bottle(s) of your creations (number depends on the number of hours booked)
- Your fragrance formula(e)

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.
