Venice was the main hub through which silk road went that made it a perfumery capital since 16th century! Even before France was established as one of the greatest influencer in perfumery. First of all, you'll have a brief discussion on the history and basics of perfumery. Venice has been the main perfumery city since the 16th century and it has lots of traditions which I will gladly share with you. I will explain you the main concept of creation a perfume and how our olfactive memory works. We design a perfume formula together for your fragrance and you will start to build it with my pre-blended accords according to your formula. At the end, you will get your individual, complex, and delicate fragrance in the bottle of 10 ml spray! Then, we will talk briefly about perfumery packaging and pack your fragrance in personalised box. Every perfume made at our place has a certificate that you will get in the end. Alcohol, drinks, some snacks and tons of fun will be provided. Moreover, we could send you photos for your instagram on demand
We will provide you with some snacks, mineral water and home sparkling wine
All necessary inventory and raw materials for creation your perfumery will be provided
I like to call myself perfumery artist because it's properly how I feel. I am a founder of Redolence perfumery company working on creation of bespoke perfumes, home fragrances and perfumed printed gloves (yes, like it was popular 2 centuries ago). Moreover, I am co-founder of Alika Art Atelier. It is an art space in Venice, Italy, right in the center of the city, where perfumery, engravings and woodcut have found a common art ground. I hold there my masterclasses and work on my perfumery projects at the same time.
A masterclass is held at our art gallery - Alika Art Atelier. It's a venue located in the center of the city - between Rialto bridge and San Marco. Actually, the whole building where we have our shop at is a place where a famous venetian painter Canaletto lived and worked. And it's a great honour for us to promote arts there. P.S.: If you have any kind of allergy, please let us know because sometimes our kitten is playing around the place.
