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.

Participants' profileAdults
In detail

Our workshops last half a day and begin with an introduction to the natural perfumery art. This moment is followed by the olfactive discovery of the raw materials selected for the apprentices. Then, each apprentice tries to create his own, personalized Eau de Toilette (15 mL) using the raw materials smelt previously.

French is spoken during the workshops, but English can be spoken for :

  • individual courses, during our summer / winter sessions (in the small village of Sainte Blandine, in the Isère department, or in Lyon, within the Artesya Cultural Center, possibilities of booking other days than week end),
  • duo courses in Lyon, within the Artesya Cultural Center
  • a group of adults who book together, by asking previously at marie-gabrielle@parfumeurs-amateurs.com (in Lyon).
