DIY Skincare Workshop: Natural Perfume & Facial Oil (Feb 26th)



326 Adelaide Street West

6th floor

Wednesday February 26th 2020 


Paloma Picasso compared perfume to "a piece of clothing", because scent is both personal– something you lovingly choose for yourself– and public– a sensory experience that represents you in some way. Our Natural Perfume Workshop is a perfect weeknight event to spoil yourself or a loved one with. This is a two-product workshop, including an oil-based facial serum customized to suit your skin's unique needs.

At this workshop, you'll get a chance to formulate your own fragrance using an array of sustainably sourced essential oils, while considering the aromatherapy benefits associated with these powerful botanical constituents. We'll also be dismantling some myths around "toxic chemicals", the dreaded "fragrance/ parfum" ingredient often found on commercial perfume labels, and talking about what essential oils actually are!

All perfumes will be alcohol-based spray perfumes, and can be used after 1 week, although a 6 week period of maturity before use is recommended. This is a beginner-level class and no experience is required.
