Treat your guests to a memorable, multi-sensory experience with a *virtual* natural fragrance workshop from Bios Apothecary! This interactive, educational immersion is great for team building and employee engagement - each guest will build a perfume or cologne from scratch, using a preselected palette of compatible natural aromas, while being guided by our master perfumer.
This one hour virtual session (zoom) opens with an introduction to natural perfumery and an overview of the ingredients and supplies in the DIY fragrance kit. As guests unpack and get settled we begin the educational component or the workshop, teaching basic principles of scent structure and composition. Next, we delve deeper into each included fragrance, discussing the nuances of each scent, it’s history and origin, as well as some suggestions and templates for blending. Then we begin the guided formulation phase of the workshop, where each guest expresses their individuality by creating a one-of-a-kind, unique signature scent. This is an unforgettable experience with a memorable keepsake that your clients or co-workers are sure to remember.
Scent Palettes [Select One]
Build your own custom scent palette for your team, or select a pre-designed unisex scent palette. Note each kit contains 6 x (1ml) scent vials - only 3ml total are needed to make a fragrance, so each guest can mix and match, leaving plenty of room for them to express their own creativity and make something truly unique, according to their own preferences.
Custom Scent Palette
This scent palette is completely customizable - we have over 100 natural fragrant oils. Once we receive your order, a member of our design coordination team will reach out and assist you in building your kit. Choose any 6 scents from our catalog, or submit a design brief (example: a gender neutral, uplifting scent) and we will suggest a few palettes for your consideration.
