Back to fragrance school

One of the most exciting events of this summer was our fragrance workshop with Saskia Wilson-Brown, Founder and Executive Director of the The Institute for Art and Olfaction which advances public and artistic engagement with scent by providing accessible and affordable education.

In the cosy event room of the Petit Ermitage Saskia introduced us the basics of fragrance making; a brief historical background presentation led to the introduction of perfumery basic ingredients and finally to making  our very own fragrance one molecule at the time.

My creation for the day was Paol-Eau de Toilet, my uniquely fresh and bright blend of Bergamot, Labdanum, Violet, Amber and Vetiver.
