WGAHK Scent Discovery Event:
Exclusive
Perfumery Master Class by Master Perfumer Mr Olivier Funel
27.03.2010 + Culture Club, Soho, Central
°@

°•My wife loves perfume and I bought her many different ones. I'm so glad that I tailor made one for her today!°¶

°•I have never bought a bottle of perfume that is completely suitable for me.  It°¶s great and fun to create my own fragrance, which I could order at a reasonable price.°¶

To start with, Olivier gave a brief perfumery history and culture in France before he explained the classic formulas of the leading perfume brands.  We all felt very excited and intrigued to learn these formulas, as we had no idea how scents or aromas are generated.  Also, it was as if we were learning something secretive. 

Then, a set of twelve essential oils was presented to us and we started to use our nose to sense the different ingredients, as if we were perfumers ourselves.  Olivier encouraged us to use our imaginations to experiment with the essential oils so as to come up with a special fragrance that reflected our own characters.

Smelling the essential oils extracted from different kinds of plants was such a fascinating experience but mixing a perfect fragrance for oneself is not easy. Not everyone could come up with his/her perfect formula, but we all enjoyed ourselves. We all returned home with a better understanding of perfume and this wonderful experience in fragrance creation.
