Perfume Making Workshop

Organised by Warehouse421

Led by Amna Al Habtoor, this workshop on the art of perfume making, will teach you how to make up different incenses such as the oud, rose, sandalwood oil, as well as the perfect mixture to enhance the woody scent of bakhoor or dukhoon. The workshop will also provide insight into many other aspects of this ancient craft, which has been a part of Arab culture since Ancient Egypt; including the correct way to store perfume and its ingredients and the practice of layering different scents. The event will be divided into different sessions including home fragrances, children's perfume, and practicing the art of perfumery.

Perfume making dates back to ancient Egyptians in 2000 BC, when perfumes were used for cleansing rituals and religious ceremonies. Perfumes were infused with different aromatic herbs; Incense and perfumed oils were also made from mixing different flower petals and plants such as rose, coriander and bergamot. Nowadays, most store-bought perfumes are mass-manufactured and, to maximize the profits, low cost synthetic chemicals are used to mimic the scents of fruits, flowers and plants.

** Minimum age is 18 years old.
