Perfume workshop that will change the way you look at fragrance.  Do you want to start a business creating natural fragrances?  This workshop is also useful for people creating soap, body care products, and candles.

During this class we will explore the essential oils and absolutes on a blotter paper and discuss the scent classification, the attributes of each essence, and the benefits of the oils. We will build accords with top, middle, and base notes, discuss blending a scent for a purpose or a themed essence. In this fun workshop we will delve deeper into making accords. Top note, heart note, and base accords and all accord combinations will be created. We will discuss creating the scent drop by drop and the bases that can be used. There will be question and answers throughout the process.

Do you wear fragrance for yourself or others?

September 11th, 2014 by


Being a natural perfumer I wear scent every day…sometimes I apply a different scent over the first one. That is called layering. I do it until I get the desired effect that pleases me.  Did you read that..that pleases me.

I wear scents both for myself, clients, friends, and others.  Do you have a wife, husband, partner or lover that comments how great you smell and they lean in to smell you deeper? Isn’t it great when you get a compliment at work or play …they say you really smell fab. What scent are you wearing and where can I get some?

Often I apply another natural perfume after I take a bath or am going to go out for the evening.  Then I choose another scent from my wardrobe…yes we have scent wardrobes.  Scents are just as important as clothes if not more so.

The benefits you receive from natural perfumes are the aromatherapy benefits of the essential oils.  I am also a certified aromatherapist and fragrance therapist so I know how to create uplifting, grounding, centering, peaceful, joyful scents, and more. What benefits do you want to receive when you wear your scent? That is what is great about 100% natural fragrances created from botanicals. NO nature identicals, no isolates, no synthetic toxic chemicals that were created in a laboratory that give you a headache or a migraine for 2 days. Using essential oils, absolutes, tinctures, and macerations of plant material you can receive the plant energy.

I invite you to try some samples from my luxury collections.  They are available as a single sample on the collection pages or as sample sets. Eau de toilettes, eau de parfums, and parfums are available.

Try some new fragrances for fall…live a little…expand your horizons.
