Where you'll be

We'll be working out of my workshop and studio, a grade 2 listed building(Historic building) which we renovated and restored in 2016 and where I spend most of my time developing new scents and experimenting with different accords. It's also where we create, bottle and package our entire range of handmade candles and essential oil blends!

What an unbelievably cool and memorable way to spend an afternoon! Gabriel knows so much about the art of scent and patiently guides you to your perfect personalized home fragrance. You get to smell dozens and dozens of amazing scents as you narrow down your choices with Gabriel’s help. It is really heavenly. And then somehow, after answering questions and narrowing it down, you blend something that is more than the sum of its parts. Gabriel combines it all for you into beautiful jars with a lovely label of the name you have chosen for your home fragrance. It all looks so professional and upscale and the scents my friend and I put together smell so unique and amazing. If you are anywhere around the Reading area, I would highly, highly recommend this experience. It is a unique opportunity. Worth a trip!

Things to know

Guests must be of legal drinking age to be served alcohol.
Guests ages 18 and up can attend, up to 5 guests in total.
All participants must wear a protective face covering and practise social distancing.

What to bring

An extra sweater or Shawl - Our workshop is temperature controlled to preserve the natural oils and this is fine for most but I would recommend bringing an extra sweater or shawl just in case.
