Centuries of perfume making history

The first people to create perfumes were the Egyptians thousands of years ago, but the modern, more mass-produced fragrances we know today actually hail from Hungary in the 14th century. The trend soon spread across Europe, in particular to France where the growing of flowers and aromatic plants as the basic ingredients of the scents meant the country became the epicentre of perfumery.

Even today we talk about 'eau de toilette' from the great perfume and fashion houses of Paris such as Guerlain, Dior, Chanel, Estee Lauder and Mugler to name but a few. No need to hop over the Channel for these experiences, you’ll be able to come up with a delightful fragrance right here in the UK, with workshops being run regularly around the country.

Learn the alchemy of perfumers

At first you might think you've signed up for a chemistry lesson as the main principles are very much scientific. We’re talking phials and pipettes everywhere and talk of blending and mixing. There are four basic types of aroma on the perfume industry's fragrance wheel to describe and categorise the smells: floral, woody, musky and spicy. Combining these in different quantities with other goodies added makes your perfume.

Now that made it all sound rather simple, but as you'll find out it's a very fine art and during the course of your session, you'll see that even the tiniest dash of ingredient can change the 'flavour' and potency of your cologne. And of course, not everyone likes a deep, dark and mysterious musky scent. Some prefer the lighter, sweeter floral tones, or a revitalising citrusy aroma and that's why the aim of these experiences is for you to create exactly the perfume you want.

A fragrance totally unique to you

Indeed you won't find your fragrance anywhere in the shops and what's more, you get to give it a name too. This is a lovely idea if you create a perfume for your wedding day, or perhaps for a special anniversary. Whatever name you choose, it will be recorded and registered, along with the exact quantities of the aromas that you picked for your blend, so you can re-order a bottle of your personalised scent at any time in the future.

And as we all love a celebrity perfume, here’s a fun little video blog where Joey Graceffa tests celebrity perfumes and gives his honest opinions, from Britney’s Fantasy, to Mariah Carey’s Miss Butterfly he’s having a sniff of your fave celeb scents. Maybe it’ll inspire you for when you make your own perfume?
