    I attended a workshop because I wanted to learn more about composing fragrances – I was a complete beginner and didn’t expect to be able to do much first time. I was blown away by how easy Debbie makes it seem, she really encourages you to find your own “nose” and explains how the energetic signature of scents work together in a way that’s very easy to understand. She demystifies a complex subject and makes you confident enough to compose your own perfume first time! I loved it and brought a friend along for a second workshop.

      Thank you so much Kristina, it was so lovely to have you on the workshop. Thank you too for coming back with a friend for a second time 🙂

    We first met Debbie at a natural perfumery course in Neal’s Yard, London. We went as a family of four and had a wonderful day, so much so that we booked a private course for the four of us at Debbie’s base in the New Forest.

    Debbie planned a fantastic course for us, we spent the morning exploring a wide range of oils, some of the more rare or unusual ones and learning more about their uses and benefits.

    In the afternoon we each made a unique blend for our own specific needs and made a range of products to take home with us.

    Debbie has a wealth of knowledge and passion for essential oils and natural perfumery and a wonderful way of sharing this with others. All in all a fantastic day and excellent value for money.

      Hi Kirstie – thank you, really lovely to spend time with you all

    I loved every minute of the perfumery workshop. I took some essential oils that I had purchased abroad and hoped to gain advice on what do with them. Debbie was lovely and extremely generous with her knowledge. I learnt an enormous amount and ended the day having created my own personal eau de toilette perfume and having the confidence and inspiration to progress. Thank you Debbie for such a delightful day.

    • Debbie Mulkern

      Thank you Jean, it was great to have you on the course, good luck with your creations 🙂

    My partner and I attended this wonderful workshop and it ranks with the best we have attended. Debbie’s knowledge is both broad and deep. We learned a lot about the oils themselves and the alchemical process of blending was revealed as we made our own beautiful essential oil eau de toilette. The oils are top quality which makes a huge difference to the outcome. Debbie steered absolute beginners and the more experienced through the day giving us all the confidence to create our own unique fragrance.

    • Debbie Mulkern

      Thank you for your lovely feedback!

    I absolutely loved my session with Debbie. I was a complete novice and Debbie gave me the opportunity to explore the full range of scents and their different positions in combination. She was very generous in explaining, sharing her amazing knowledge and experience. I came away with an eau de toilette I absolutely love it and it reminds me each time I wear it of the fabulous experience I had creating it. I’d certainly do it again. Thank you Debbie

    • Debbie Mulkern

      Thank you so much Gillian 🙂

    The day was amazing – didn’t really know what to expect – but – came away not only with my own bespoke self made perfume, but a true sense of ‘how’ perfume has developed through time. Really interesting presentation from Debbie taking us through the history, full of interesting facts. Then onto the actual making of a perfume – the different notes and how they enhance a scent. Debbie was so engaging and knowledgeable about the subject. Would recommend to anyone wanting to explore this subject. Thanks Debbie great day

    • Debbie Mulkern

      Thanks so much for coming along Louise 🙂

  7. Suky Allan

    I was given a workshop as a gift by a friend and wasn’t sure what to expect before I arrived, but what an amazing gift. I couldn’t recommend it highly enough. Debbie’s skill , knowledge and enthusiasm ran through the whole day and helped me create my own fragrance, which I adore.
    I highly recommend it.

    • Debbie Mulkern

      Thank you so much 🙂

  8. Charlotte Jones

    I attended one of Debbie’s workshops with a group of girlfriends and it was such a lovely experience. I learnt so much more than I was expecting. Debbie shares a wealth of knowledge about oils, plants and perfumery. She guides you through a process that results in a scent creation that very cleverly reflects all that you end up learning about your own relationship with smells and oils. Debbie is so passionate about her craft that you can’t help but come away with sone of her enthusiasm as well as your own perfume! I definitely recommend this fun and informative workshop.

    • Debbie Mulkern

      Thank you Charlotte, so glad you enjoyed the day.

    I cannot recommend Debbie’s Natural Perfumery course enough; it was fabulous. I came away feeling so much more knowledgeable and in touch with what I like
    If you love working with the senses, you will love Debbie’s class. It’s so in-depth and so knowledgeable. I loved the way she incorporated history, fashion, countries, attitudes, and everything else that she weaved in through her class. She possesses exceptional knowledge in the field. Her impressive portfolio showcases her collaborations with reputable natural and organic companies worldwide, which is evident in her teaching. To date, she is the most knowledgeable aromatherapist I have encountered! To top it off, the class was great fun! We all left there with huge smiles and smelling like Gods and Goddesses For those looking to explore the world of natural perfumery, I highly recommend this class. Debbie is an expert who can work with individuals of all levels, whether you are just starting out or are already an accomplished perfumer. Her ability to teach and guide her students with ease is truly remarkable.

      Thank you so much, such a pleasure to have you in the group

  10. Carolyn Schmalhaus

    I attended a workshop at the end of 2023, and found it to be a thoroughly enjoyable day. Debbie is so knowledgeable and passionate about the subject. She talked us through the essential oils and their role in perfumery through time, expertly weaving sampling of different oils into the story, to help us develop our own nose. Then, skilfully guided by Debbie, we used our new knowledge to develop our own scents, and by the end of the day I had an eau de toilette to take home that resonates with me personally, and makes me happy every time I put it on!

    • Debbie Mulkern

      Thank you Carolyn
      That’s so lovely to know. Debbie

  11. Jacqui maclean

    I went along expecting to learn about scent and learn how to make a perfume. However this workshop is so much more it’s also about your personal journey and throughout the day you are totally absorbed into the world of scent and also how certain fragrances bring wonderful memories and emotions into life. A skilled and passionate teacher Debbie brings fragrance to life. A MUST DO for anyone interested in this fascinating subject.

    • Debbie Mulkern

      Thank you Jacqui – really lovely to meet you and so glad you enjoyed the day

  12. Emily Jerome

    I went along to this workshop to get a better understanding of how to make perfume and to learn more about essential oils and their benefits. Debbie is so knowledgeable about everything to do with perfumes and scents and I thoroughly enjoyed my day and felt like I learnt so much. I would recommend to everyone & anyone!

    • Debbie Mulkern

      Thank you very much Emily 🙂

  13. Sally Bonynge

    My son bought me this workshop for Christmas. Full marks to him for selecting such a wonderful present. We spent the morning smelling lots of oils, some good and some not so good but it all comes down to individual taste. The afternoon was spent creating our own perfume with as much help as we needed. I came away with a beautiful bottle of perfume so thank you for such a great time. Thanks also to the seven other lovely ladies in the group

    • Debbie Mulkern

      Thank you Sally and you are very welcome:)

  14. Lindsay Warwick

    Thoroughly enjoyed the day. Loved how it was organised with some history of perfume combined with smelling the different aromas, and then making our own perfume. I knew nothing about how to do it but Debbie is clearly very knowledgeable, and she patiently took us through the process. All in all it was a relaxing, interesting and engaging day 🙂

  15. Mal Warwick

    I attended a workshop in May with my daughter. It was a birthday gift for me and I enjoyed it immensely! We learned some interesting facts about perfumes and their history and I loved smelling the various oils that Debbie introduced us to. I had no idea about the different stages needed to make a perfume but luckily Debbie was there to help us calculate the number of drops required for our chosen oils!
    All in all a very enjoyable and informative day! Thank you.
