Our natural scent bar is designed for discovery! Have you smelled smokey notes inside a glass of red wine? Can you detect fruity notes in your morning coffee?

We love working with Lululemon Britomart - the space is all set up for you to enjoy beauty & wellbeing in one!

When you visit the Perfume Playground you have access to a natural scent bar. You can smell over 100 naturally derived essences. Visit to tease your senses, and see whether your nose can detect essences inside essences. During the discovery session, all that matters is that you choose 3 things you like.

After scent discovery, you learn best practise blending techniques and then create a unique blend that represents you. You take home 12mL in fragrance.

A natural fragrance artist, Samantha Copland, trained by world-renowned alchemist Mandy Aftel is on-site to help you with your design.
As much as this is about scent design, and we cover the art and science of perfume-making in the class, it's about exploring yourself and your sense of smell, just like you would enjoy yourself at a new restaurant or a festival of music!
With over 100 natural essences available for you to enjoy, this incredible palette of the highest quality essential oils, resins, isolates and compounded natural isolates creates a fun challenge as you select scents to blend.
We say no to parabens, glycols, petrochemicals or synthetics.
We cover how you select, design and bottle natural aroma.
Learn the skills you need to create your first wellbeing elixir from a fragrance expert.
