A fragrance is a powerful thing. The faint scent of rose water evokes memories of garlands and weddings. A whiff of a perfume your friend used to wear can bring nostalgia gushing in. We even pick our mates based on their smell! Wouldn't it be nice to get to the bottom of this thing that wields so much control on us?
Head over to the Urban Ladder store for a session on perfumery, the art
of composing perfumes. Creating a fragrance is delicate work - you need the right balance of high and low notes, just a soupcon of this, and a trace of that. And voila, you have a potion that can titillate, seduce and stir up a whole range of emotions.
Quite a heady feeling, that!
will be facilitated by Gathr and conducted by Rajiv Sheth, Perfumer and Founder of All Good Scents. At the workshop, you will:
- Learn about the olfactory pyramid and the basic constituents of a fragrance.
- Train your nose to selected facets (citrus, woody, floral, etc.) that will be used in the perfume.
- Design a unique scent that you will take home with you.About the Facilitator
