I’ve been on maternity leave, but I’m now organizing new classes and workshops in England.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to take part.
Friday 9th February 2018 6pm – 9pm
London W1U 3BN
Feeling romantic? Join me at the Wallace Collection for an after-hours scented tour of the museum. Experience the fragrances loved by Madame de Pompadour, Louis XV’s mistress, and learn about the headily perfumed world of Versailles where scent saturated the furniture, fountains and guests. I will create scent interpretations of Boilly’s Les Malheurs de l’amour (The Sorrows of Love) and Albani’s Cupid and Venus to experience while viewing the paintings. This will be followed by a workshop to make a sensual fragrance for yourself or your partner, using ingredients such as vanilla, musk, sandalwood, amber and rose.
Florals in the Kitchen
This class will demonstrate how the floral ingredients often used in perfumery can enliven your cooking.
Taught by Guardian food writer Felicity Cloake and perfumer Eliza Douglas, you will smell the many exquisite natural materials used in fine fragrance and learn how to incorporate them into desserts, cocktails and chocolate to fabulous effect. You will be sampling Felicity’s Violet Marzipans, making (and drinking!) Tony Conigliaro’s Lipstick Rose cocktail based on Frederic Malle’s glamorous scent (using rose, raspberry, violet, fizz, bitters) and creating Geranium Apple snow.
Over the course of 3 hours you will:
- Learn about natural floral materials and their origins
- Make chocolates, cocktails, desserts using these ingredients
- Expand your repertoire of what ‘can’ and ‘can’t’ be used in the kitchen
All ingredients, naturals chart and resource list will be provided – just bring an open mind and a sense of fun!

Accords Saturdays April 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th 2015
10:30am – 1:00pm
In these classes we’ll be making accords, the building blocks of perfumery. An accord is a balanced combination of several notes blended together to make a single impression. Accords can be used to simplify the process of scent creation.
We’ll learn about the different materials in these accords and where they fit into fragrance families as a way to understand how to categorize them. We’ll also see how their facets overlap with one another, creating a kaleidoscope of connections, ‘bridges’ between two materials. Click on individual classes to find out more and to register.
Class 1: Gourmand accords
Class 2: Aquatic accords
