Want to review this course?

The two day course was an informative, interesting and fun hands-on introduction to the world of natural fragrances and the history of perfumery. It was fascinating to explore the sense of smell which can be taken for granted and experience the different characteristics of a wide range of naturally occurring scents derived from plants and learn about the extraction of oils and resins.
The course took place in a light-filled and calm studio set in a wonderful garden.
Thank you Rowan.
