Slow Scent® Natural Perfume Workshop

You’ll learn the basics of professional natural perfumery with an experienced perfumer at your side. Participants will be guided through a multi-sensory perfume workshop where they will learn to create their own personal luxurious fragrance from a selection of 18 exquisite professional perfume fragrances (six top notes, six middle notes, six base notes). We practice composing and mixing these essences in a meaningful and beautifully fragrant way.

We use 100% natural essences such as rare woods, precious floral absolutes, sensual spices and warm gourmand notes. All workshops are teached by Corinna, perfumer and architect.

Your own created perfume

Corinna will introduce each essence and you will learn how to smell them properly. The individual facets are easily grasped, olfactorily perceived, and become familiar. You will discover the difference between base notes, middle notes and top notes for the classic structure of a perfume, learn about a first simple fragrance architecture as well as the classic fragrance families. With these simple tools you create your own personal perfume under Corinna’s guidance.

At the end, each participant takes home their own self-created Eau de Parfum (incl. formula): 15 ml in a high-quality glass bottle with a beautiful silver cap, professionally crimped.

Natural instead of synthetic fragrances

You’ll also learn the difference between natural and synthetic fragrances. Even if you love conventional perfume, you can smell our curated 100% botanical essences in the workshop and use your knowledge later in your work with synthetic perfumes. The advantage: smelling real rose or real jasmine is a sensual experience.

No previous knowledge necessary

You can come to this workshop with absolutely no previous experience. From 15 years. The joy of creative experimentation is in the foreground! All the necessary materials are provided by us. You’ll see – there’s something wonderful about experimenting with natural essences, and your creativity will unfold easily!

Slowing down and reconnection with nature

At our Slow Scent® workshops, you slow down, leave your everyday life behind and dive into the art of perfume making with joy. While you are playfully creating, it is easy for you to relax at the same time. You connect back to nature since we use only all-natural, 100% botanical essences!
