Advanced Fragrance Blending at POST

Hosted by POST- Detroit (registration required - link soon $75 for three hours)

all materials included

Scent, of course, is not only biologically the oldest but also the most evocative of all our senses. It goes deeper than conscious thought or organized memory and has a will of its own which human imagination is compelled to obey. - Laurens Van Der Post

This workshop is designed to make a deeper dive into the nuances of fragrance construction. Previous experience is not required, just an enthusiasm to savor the basics of design in a more intentional way.

We will all work with the same fragrant materials with near-infinite possibilities: compose three variations and take home an atomizer bottle to fill with your favorite.

When we start to blend, you’ll have the opportunity to create multiple variations which allows the opportunity to make minute adjustments and experience the difference. Select your favorite for your atomizer bottle.
