Create a custom fragrance while discovering the science of smell!

Join Field Agent Robert Hemedes for a perfume making workshop at The Institute for Art and Olfaction, located in the heart of Chinatown. Instructors from the Institute will share the history and science of perfumery and guide you through the process of creating a custom fragrance. During this course, you will be encouraged to experiment and follow your nose! You'll have the opportunity to work with various natural and synthetic aromamolecules and with the right combination of patience and a sense of adventure, craft your own perfume.
