The Perfumers Amateurs is a site that caters to adults who love perfumes and consider, during a few hours or more, the practice of perfumery as creative leisure. The specificity of these workshops is the choice to introduce perfumes with raw materials from natural origin only. This deliberate choice does not facilitate the initiation, but it makes travel fantasy, it promotes interpersonal exchanges opening parenthesis of our personal story and of History, it brings us together, by smelling, with the nature surrounding us.

Les Parfumeurs Amateurs are born in 2013 and work exclusively with naturals. We propose, for French people, natural perfumery initiation workshops, clubs once a month and courses for aspirants professionals.
