Perfume and fynbos workshop,
Breytenbach Gallery Wellington
(10 participants only)
Join us for a 5-senses double session where you will blend your very own roll-on signature perfume, smell rare natural aromatics, touch and taste edible botanicals and immerse yourself in the heady experience of some rare and locally distilled essential oils and a largely unknown treasure of South African fynbos heritage.
The first session is Creating your own Perfume with Le Rich Naturals whereby you will dive into the adventure of blending fragrances from 9 different indigenous and fynbos oils and will walk away with a personalised roll-on perfume and a DIY kit in order to experiment with newly acquired knowledge and skills at home. (90 minutes)
After a light bite and refreshing drink, both incorporating some fynbos elements, you will experience a Fynbos tea-tasting of the botanicals growing in the heart of the Winelands. Similar to a wine-tasting you will be able to distinguish between the various infusions by matching the tea with the botanical. This will be complemented by demonstrations and recipes of vinegar tinctures, infused fleur de sel (using West Coast rock salt), room mist and body scrub. You will walk away with live and edible botanicals and huge enthusiasm to try the recipes at home. (90 minutes)
