Hosted by POST + Monique Herzig (Alchemy Slow Living)
Saturday March 23rd from 2 to 5pm
Previous experience is not required, just an enthusiasm to savor the basics of fragrance design in a more intentional way.
In this workshop we will gather at one table for three hours to make a deeper exploration into the nuances of creating perfumes with natural essences. Monique with facilitate a guided tour of fragrance construction and present an intuitive approach to design.
Each guest will have the opportunity to create three modifications of their perfume, making for a richer experience and a better sense of how the art and science of perfumery with plants works.
Working from the same curated palette, attendees have access to classic chypre (mossy) and amber bases created by Alchemy - plus beautiful heart notes and head accords - not sure what those words mean? That's okay! We're going to review common terms, discuss how to add sophistication with tinctures, how to evaluate, 'age' and filter perfumes.
Everyone will take home three fragrance 'experiments' - and atomizer bottle for your favorite - a funnel for transferring the perfume - plus a booklet for more experimenting at home.
About the instructor:
Alchemy is science + magic. Creative director, Monique Herizg has a degree in Recreation and Leisure Studies and a passion for plant based beauty rituals.
