You’ll join me, Liz Grech, in my Perfume Studio in a Maltese village farmhouse for a 4-hour workshop – Prosecco and Perfume Event – creating your own signature scent. After a short introduction to perfume history and fragrance families, you train your nose, meet your raw materials – a range of all-natural fragrance oils and materials – and get to grips with the basis of perfume construction.
After refreshments in the courtyard herb garden, you start work on your signature scent. First, you devise your perfume’s theme drawing inspiration from special moments, places and people, or perhaps look to Mediterranean botanicals for your muse. Then, comes the magic of scent creation as you translate your vision into your very own perfume.
At the end of the event, you’ll celebrate your hard work and test out each other’s creations over a glass of Prosecco and light refreshments. You take away your botanical creation as a 10ml Eau de Parfum atomizer along with a new-found passion for natural perfumery!
