First Solid Perfume Workshop

Ceramic Casseroles, originally uploaded by Ayala Moriel.

My first ever solid perfume workshop happened tonight and was plenty of fun! Everybody just loved the perfume they've created for themselves. I had a great time too, as there is nothing more pleasant for me than to share my passion and knowledge with like minded people who love and appreciate scent, and are eager to learn.

I was also happy that we had just enough time and didn't need to rush anything at all. We started with tea and than smelled all the essences that I had picked for us to use. We than planed our perfumes and went step by step through the process of fragrance creation, drop by drop until each one was happy with the result. The

Above are the results of the first solid perfume workshop:

Keona's Green Queen - with notes of Peru balsam, Rose Absolute, Lime, Ginger, Myrrh and Labdanum

Marcia's Fiesta - with notes of Cocoa Absolute, Lavender Concrete, Rose Absolute, Fresh Ginger Essential Oil and Lime Essential Oil. Marcia picked a lovely vintage pillbox for her perfume (the label is on the bottom) with a yellow-rose decoration on the porcelain lid.

Ty's Middle Earth Essence - with notes of Peru Balsam, Copaiba Balsam, Clary Sage, Violet Leaf Floral Wax and Juniper Berry Essential Oil.

The next Solid Perfume workshop is scheduled for July 12th. There will be another one on July 31st, and at least one more in August. For more information about the workshops, click on the Workshop Calendar button on the right.

P.s. It's quite uncommon for things to go smoothly and arrive on time, so you can imagine my thrill today when I discovered the ceramic casseroles I've ordered online have arrived just on time for my first solid perfume workshop! I've ordered 10 of them, since the two I have and use in my studio would not be enough for a workshop that is open for up to 6 participants. It certainly made things a lot easier...

Those workshops sound like so much fun! And using ceramics too. So "earthy" and natural feeling.

Thanks for letting me get a glimpse :-)
