What I loved about the workshop is that it was all hands on – from smelling classic perfumes, comparing different top, middle and base notes, to blending our own bespoke scents. Getting to smell oils and essences that I knew the names of but had never smelled individually – such as musk and ambergris – was fascinating. Geraldine – Horsham, West Sussex

“Karen’s perfume class was lots of fun. She is very knowledgable and could answer all our questions. Karen has a very pleasant and easy teaching style and was good at keeping us all focused. We were able to all make our own solid and spray perfumes with Karen’s expert help on hand. What’s not to like. I have taken other classes with Karen and thoroughly recommend this class and all her classes – I had a wonderful time.” Lynn P – London (Attended the 2 day artisan perfumery workshop)
