Perfume-making Class: Make Your Own Signature Scent

2.5 hours Class size 1 to 10 (public classes), 8 to 30 label $140

We're bringing Australia's much-loved perfume-making experience to New Zealand! Step into the alluring world of fragrances and scents with our natural perfumery workshop!
Make your own signature scent and learn how to create two kinds of fragrances to take home with you; an Eau de Parfum in two formulations. This class is the perfect gift for anniversaries, Mothers Day and other special occasions. Our small class size ensures our instructor is available to guide you in the creative and formulation process.
We'll start with the science and history of perfume. You'll be introduced to the different kinds of fragrances. Gain an understanding of how fragrance notes work and be guided through the fragrance pyramid and fragrance wheel. By the end of the class, you will have the confidence to layer fragrances and design your own signature scent.
With over 100 natural fragrances available in our studio, we'll explore the fragrance family from fresh, floral and fruity to spicy, earthy and woody. Using perfumer's grade alcohol and only natural absolutes, extracts, resins, essential and plant oils, you will create a scent profile that's unique to you.
You will be spoilt for choice of crowd favourites and niche scents like jasmine and ylang-ylang, frangipani, rosewood, vanilla, juniper, grapefruit, lemon, lavender, rose, patchouli, cinnamon and cedarwood to name a few. You will also be introduced to our Australian and New Zealand native ingredients like lemon myrtle, tea tree, eucalyptus blue gum, kunzea, manuka and kawakawa.
At the end of the workshop, you will make your own fragrances in two styles:
1) Your choice of Eau de Cologne or Eau de Toilette in a perfumer's grade alcohol base, 30ml spray bottle.
2) Eau de Parfum, a luxurious oil-based perfume in a stylish 10ml bottle, a handbag or purse must-have.
We'll also discuss the etiquette of perfumery; how to apply fragrances, what to do and not to do to make fragrances linger and last.
What you'll get
Your own signature scent in two fragrance styles:
1) Choice of Eau de Cologne or Eau de Toilette, 30ml spray bottle
2) Eau de Parfum, 10ml bottle
You will also receive a fragrance chart, which you will complete during the class. Take it home with you and re-create your signature scent or bring it back to our studio to refill.

Hi, I'm Louella from Naturally Ready. I'm a small-batch maker of fragrances and natural products.
My handmade journey started ten years ago. I moved from Auckland to Australia to work for Australian grain farmers. I discovered just how amazing plants are, especially when it's cold pressed and turned into oil! I started making and selling Kiss Ready Lips, a range of natural lip balms.
A decade on, I still formulate and hand make our eco-luxe natural products. These days, you will find me traveling between Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland, teaching natural perfume, home fragrances and DIY skincare workshops.
I also run private in-person workshops for hen's and bridal shower, birthday parties and team building. I can also travel to you for mobile on-site workshops.
I'm so excited to share my love for handmade, truly nourishing ingredients and small-batch fragrances and natural skincare with you.
Love x Louella
