Perfume making in Norfolk



Start your journey into the fascinating world of perfume, the marriage of spices, flowers, citrusses, grasses and woods of essential oils as well as aroma chemicals and fragrances.

This amazing workshop is a One to One giving you my full attention throughout the day so you can create something wonderful while learning a huge amount about essential oils, fragrance oils and aroma chemicals. If you have a friend or relation that would like to come along I will happily reduce the price to £70 per person.

Beginning the day with the theory of perfume making and learning how to 'smell' and train your nose like a perfumier and ending the day with your very own signature bottle of perfume.

We will be working with natural essential oils but I will have some aroma chemicals and fragrances for you to experiment with, as perfumes today are usually a blend of both.

We will start the day with coffee/tea and biscuits, talking about the different aromas you like.

What we will be learning :
- The theory of perfume making.
- How to train your nose to the different smells.
- Learn about different essential oils, fragrance oils and aroma chemicals that can be used.
- Learn about top notes, middle notes and base notes.
- How to balance a perfume with harmony.
- Create your own perfume in a 100ml bottle to take home.
- How to make an oil based perfume.
- How to make a solid perfume.

This is the first perfume making workshop to be held in Norfolk. To read reviews on my other workshops please go to the Soap making workshop and the Skincare making workshops where you find many lovely comments - thank you.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

You take home the perfume you have created and a booklet on perfume making.

A light lunch, coffee/tea and biscuits will be provided.

I will provide everything you need, all you have to bring is yourself. The group will be kept small and is held in my farmhouse in North Norfolk.

I attended the Perfume Making course run by Diane. It was a great experience run by a lovely lady. Diane is very patient and knowledgeable I thoroughly enjoyed the day, and made perfume that I love and wear. I recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn something new and have a great day out in the process.
