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.

In detail

Our half-day workshops begin with an introduction to natural perfumery, followed by the olfactory discovery of the selected raw materials, and they end with a practical exercise, the making of a personalized 15 mL eau de toilette with the raw materials selected according to the theme.

Given the health context, the workshops to discover natural perfumery take place online (on Skype or Zoom), accompanied by an olfactory kit, for the 2021-2022 school year. Individual workshops, duo workshops and trio workshops are maintained.

We make every effort to maintain the spirit of these workshops, resolutely oriented towards the attentive olfaction of 100% natural raw materials, eager to satisfy your curiosity in a friendly atmosphere, with good feasibility despite fluctuating public health rules.

On the website, you will find the description sheet of each workshop and you can contact us at + 33 4 28 35 00 04, we will be happy to inform you. The dates and times are adaptable on weekdays or weekends, on wide beaches.

Attention, the Amateur Perfumers are not a shop, but a training center, it is not required to permanence at the address indicated.

We run two Sunday perfumers' clubs during the school year and are also a training organization specializing in natural perfumery.

These services are also carried out online in 2021-2022.

We will be happy to answer your questions.
