CLA Cymru: Wales Perfumery workshop

It’s the individuality of scents and how they respond to different people, creating personality that fascinates a CLA member from Monmouthshire who has established a thriving business, Wales’ first perfumery. “I established Wales Perfumery here about 5 years ago,” says Louise Smith. “In our secret walled garden in the Wye Valley, I’m constantly inspired by the scent of nature and the history of the landscape in Wales.” The business is based in our 500 year old secret walled garden. Louise’s scent-range is inspired by nature. Forest - Coedwig, Country – Gwlad, and Coast – Arfordir. They inspire the senses of bursting buds, bark, sap, ripening fruit and leaf-litter; loam, drizzle-swept grassland and freshwater streams; and crashing waves, spindrift, kelp and sand - subtly sculpted by retreating tide. Rapidly expanding, Louise has introduced a new product, Star – Seren, reflecting guiding lights in unguent midnight tones and mysterious nocturnal sounds. Louise's laboratory houses bottles, phials, flasks and jars of every size and shape in serried ranks. But it’s the natural wood worktops and seated areas which make individual workstations which tell another story. This is a therapeutic, learning environment. For here, Louise’s clients are also guided to create their own fragrance in workshops – individually, in pairs (such as a wedding experience) – or in groups.

Come and experience the art of perfumery with Louise and encounter her unique workshop experience in her garden laboratory - the workshop will be for two hours with a limited number permitted to book.

An opportunity to experience the perfume process first hand - and in a beautiful setting.

Why not buy the experience for a family member or friend for Christmas? 

There will be tea and coffee available for attendees during the session.

Free parking onsite.
