Perfume Workshop Comic-Con Style

  • Jul 20, 2013 · 3:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

I lead perfume workshops in the area. I recently had success with a "Creating a Perfume for Your Steampunk Persona" workshop at the Gaslight Gathering, a local steampunk and Victoriana convention and wanted to expand on this idea. Comic-Con also has its share of people who have character personas and feel the creative urge to make a perfume to express this character with scent. If you are going to Comic-Con or just attending the nighttime events or doing the zombie walk, a perfume could be that perfect costume topper! Even if you aren't into the Comic-Con zaniness, you could create your own perfume for your true self!

About me: I've been mixing perfumes both on my own and professionally for eight years. I have over 100 essential oils and other types of notes, everything from the traditional rose or lavender, to crazy notes like engine oil, dirt, coffee and chocolate. If you want a list of notes to see if this is right for you, please email [masked]. I can also do a custom perfume if you sign up but don't end up attending.

What happens at the workshop:  I will give a short lecture about perfume construction.  Each of the perfume notes is passed around so each person can smell the components of their soon-to-be perfume.  Then you can pick a variety of notes to customize your perfume while I blend it before your eyes, letting you smell it and telling me what else I can do to make your perfume perfect. If you have a perfume for a persona or character you are playing in mind, we can blend a custom perfume for that character.

Cost: $20  For lecture, one-on-one consulting and your own custom made highly-concentrated (a drop goes a long way!) perfume in a 5ml glass bottle with decorative, usually steampunk-themed, tag. Payment can be made in cash at the event or you can Paypal me the money at [masked].

Location:  My house, unless someone has a good place to have it closer to the action of Comic-Con...but my house has a lot more parking! :)   I am pretty sure it will be at my house. 99% certain.

Minimum people who can join this event: 9.  If I do get nine people and you want to be put on a waiting list, we can do that too.
