Perfume Making Workshop

Make your own unique natural perfume

‘Have been spraying very liberally all weekend – we had lunch with our daughter on Sunday and, the ultimate accolade, she thought ‘Joie de Viv’s mix’ was beautiful. So please guard my recipe well.’ 

I have just finished my Perfume making day in Stratford-upon-Avon – I cannot begin to tell you how fascinating it was and what was even more amazing that everyone went home with a perfume they loved!

My friend found out she had an allergy to the alcohol/preservatives used in commercial perfumes and make-up so asked if I could run a perfume making day up here as she felt undressed not using perfume.

Some used Lavender and Geranium oils

This got me thinking about perfume and how we use it as Mandy Aftel  wrote ‘Perfume has helped people to pray, to heal, to make love and war, to prepare for death, to create. To inspire, after all, is literally “to breathe in.’

So if you would like to get together a group of six, I will do a workshop for you:-

For your Hen Night so you have an original scent for your wedding day

A thank you to your mother or a special Mother’s Day present

Some used Orange Blossom flower water as a base for their perfumes

To celebrate a birthday

Arrange for daughter to take a scent you have made together to University or travelling

To celebrate the change in seasons

Or really just for you to enjoy!

Testimonials from the session:-

Thanks very much for a lovely and exciting morning creating my fragrance.  I have been spraying around and receiving compliments.’

‘I’m not going to take home the paperwork, I’m going to leave it with you so I can re-order the exact perfume again.’

I was worried that I might find I had no ‘nose’ for making perfume and make a too sweet girly number, however I am really pleased with the result. It is much better than I ever imagined I could make’

‘Loved it! Great morning and great fun!’

Others used rosemary and lavender oils

I used the healing body butter with the healing soap when I was going through treatment for breast cancer; it kept my skin soft and stopped any infection. I would recommend for other women who are going through this medical procedure. Thank you. M.S Stratford
