Can’t leave your home without spraying on your perfume of the day and bringing a mini version for reapplication throughout the day? If you love your scents, then you definitely need to try a perfume making workshop so you can further explore the process behind making perfumes and make your own unique one.

Prices for a session range from SGD98 for a group session to SGD138 for a private one. Book it here.
If you’re heading to Sentosa, you definitely don’t want to miss out on taking Scentopia’s perfume making workshop. You’ll start by taking the Perfume Personality Assessment to see if you gravitate towards citrus, fresh, floral, woody, or Oriental scents. Then, you’ll pick the aroma oils made from Singapore orchids that will be infused into your unique perfume. You’ll have the chance to make two different samples so you can have more options. Finally, it ends with a perfumer converting your sample into a full-sized 50ML or 100ML bottle for you to take home.
Prices start at SGD95 for a 50ML workshop. Book it here.
Natural body care, skincare and aromatherapy brand THANN also offers scent making sessions using its own essential oils. If you’re looking for a mist-type perfume, take the Fragrance Mist DIY Workshop. In 30 minutes, you’ll be able to create your own multipurpose spray for your body, hair, linens, pillows, clothings and rooms. If you’re looking for a sustainable option, you can also try your hand at making an aroma balm that can be used as a solid perfume and moisturiser.
Both are priced at SGD39 and can be booked via the brand’s website.
The seasoned workshop hosts at CraftLabs also offer beginner-friendly workshops for making your own scents. It’s an hour-long session where you’ll craft a 20ML Eau de Parfum, create your own scent wardrobe, and learn about your friends’ or classmates’ scents and how it relates to their personalities! Each workshop requires at least five people and can accommodate up to 400 attendees.
