After arriving at our laboratory you'll listen to a brief 15 minute discussion on the history and basics of perfumery. We'll discuss the sensory experience of perfume, the difference between natural and synthetic fragrances, and the foundations to crafting of a perfume. From there, you'll begin experimenting with our many fragrance notes. We'll offer simple options, in the form of pre-blended accords, to more individual, complex, and delicate notes. None of the experimenting will decide your final fragrance, so it's a great opportunity to have fun with it. After you've found and chosen your favorite fragrance pairings, we'll go about building your fragrance, drop by drop. Once done, you'll prepare your fragrance oils for bottling and end by bottling and labelling your perfume. Alcohol and vegan snacks will be provided.
I'm the founder of O'Douds Apothecary, an all-natural laboratory focused on cosmetics, grooming, and fragrances. O'Douds started almost 6 years ago when I began learning to formulate my own hair products. Over the past 6 years I've studied, formulated, and manufactured botanically derived fragrances, cosmetics, hair care, and skin care.
Vegan & Gluten Free options available.

We'll provide everything you need to make your perfume. Just bring a smile!
You'll be crafting your perfume in the O'Douds Laboratory, the same one where we make all of our own products. Regular production may or may not be occurring at the same time, but if it is, we'll give you a brief tour of what's going on.
