C'est un peu rapide et pas très intéressant

Commenté le 24/02/2023

C'est trop rapide, on s'assoit, on nous donne une fiche que l'on va compléter on donne 3 infos sur les 3 notes d'un parfum et vas y choisit les senteurs. Ensuite il faut mettre la dose et c'est fini. Je ne vois pas l'intérêt de l'atelier. J'ai fait d'autres ateliers qui étaient plus ludiques, plus explicatifs et moins rapides. Je n'ai pas aimé et je ne recommanderais pas l'atelier.


An hour in the blink of an eye.

I was expecting a more thorough insight into perfume making. However, all we received was a pyramid displaying the top, middle and bottom notes of perfume introduced to us in a quiet voice I could barely hear, and my hearing is excellent. Then a mad rush to smell the different scents to place in our perfume. Left to ones own devices I ended up with a perfume I was not very happy with. Maybe as you are sniffing away the speaker could suggest to everyone what ensures a balanced perfume rather than selecting a few people to endow their time and expertise upon. My suggestion before doing this workshop is to do your own investigation into perfumes that you like and follow their selected notes. Would I recommend. Yes, if only to have the opportunity to smell 90 different essences in an 15 minutes before constructing your perfume.


Sympa pour découvrir , mais sans plus

Atelier juste pour la découverte de ce milieu, est plaisant et basic. Ayant effectué un autre atelier chez la concurrence, là j'ai appris beaucoup plus et nettement plus intéressant. Par contre le cadre chez vous est magnifique !!! je ne recommanderais pas forcement l'atelier mais la visite oui certainement
