Bespoke Perfume Lab
Try bespoke if you are after a truly unique perfume ultimately tailored to your tastes and pleasant memories and a perfume no one else will have. Our method allows even a complete novice to build a professional grade perfume in about an hour. Customers pick the fragrant ingredients, range them from the most to least dominant and we then suggest best quantities. This way the formula turns out as tailored to customer’s preferences as possible but works as well as any commercial conventional perfume of the shelf.
Bespoke is the opposite of wearing a result of some focus group decisions (who often pick from a range of existing commercial options anyway) where perfume formulas are very generic and only the marketing effort differs. At our workshop you will see that we are not trying to offer you ready-made perfumes as bespoke only because we bottle them on the spot and put your name on the label (there’s a brand whose business model is just that). The magic will happen real-time in front of the customer.
Technically the result of the workshop will always work as a perfume. Whether you get where you planned to in terms of the idea depends on how focused you are during the process (as you will need to pick the ingredients which will contribute to your idea). On our part we will not suggest incompatible ingredient and/or grotesque volumes (unless you decide to go very experimental and take the responsibility).
All the materials in your perfume will be selected by you yourself step by step; only those you like will go into your formula.
At the start of the workshop you will decide which fragrance family your perfume will belong to (for example, fruity floral or aromatic fresh, etc.) and the lab assistant will only offer ingredients that will work with one another and contribute to your original idea. The process will require some focus so that you stick to your idea and mix what you intended to.
During the workshop you will pause to assess your progress: mixing the base first, then the heart and then the top of the fragrance. At each stage you will check how your perfume takes shape and will have a chance to think about what to add next.
For example, if you decide to build a citrus woody fragrance, you will only be offered perfumes bases that are suitable for this fragrance family and work with each other. You will be given a chance to range your selected ingredients (from the one you want to dominate to the one to serve just as a highlight). The lab assistant then will give you the best ratios for each ingredient to make sure your formula works.
Yes we do hold mixing ‘parties’, the maximum number of people that will work is around 12.
Please email us at email@example.com with the number of participants and the nature of the event and we’ll be able to work out a price for you (as the more people there are the cheaper it gets) and possible workshop duration for that particular group. Everyone leaves with 50 ml of their own formula, bottled, labeled and ready to use.
Drinks are possible, food is not advised though. It is also possible have the boutique for your party exclusively if the session is booked in the evening.
