Natural Perfume Workshop

about this event

Are you looking for a fun, immersive way to learn more about natural perfumery and create your own signature scent with friends? Try a Bios Apothecary perfume making class! You will leave with your very own bespoke fine fragrance. 

Our $120 fee per person includes: an introduction to natural perfumery, an overview and sampling of our most popular botanical scents (with access to our full library of 130+ aromatics) and all of the raw materials and supplies needed to create your one-of-a-kind 15ml signature fragrance. Light refreshments (mimosas for daytime workshops and red wine for evening workshops) will be served.


We have one of the most extensive libraries of natural perfume ingredients in the world. Raw materials will include 130+ therapeutic grade essential oils, absolutes, concretes, resins, and isolates – sourced from more than 40 countries and spanning all major olfactory families.  We have plant-based “leathers” and “musks”, exquisite and rare woods, exotic flowers, earthy root extractions, juicy tree fruit, ripe berries, invigorating citrus, verdant grasses, balsamic resins, decadent gourmands, enlivening spices and more – comprehensive selections for both men and women. Choose an oil base with a roll on applicator, or a traditional perfumers alcohol base with a spray atomizer.  Decorative dried botanicals and semi-precious gemstones can be infused into your fragrance at no extra cost.
