Personal guidance by a trained perfumer to take you through the steps in making perfume, from the selection of ingredients to fragrance formulation and production.
Explore 80 high-quality perfume grade fragrance oils. All selected for their specific fragrance making properties.
Within the one hour session we take you through the perfume making procedure of profiling your tastes, defining the type of fragrance, selecting ingredients, composing the formula and adding the ingredients by hand into the finished fragrance bottle.
Perfume recipes and fragrance formulas are created by our trained perfumer from your selected favourite ingredients and cross checked against your scent profile. We use your taste and our knowledge to guide the fragrance oil combinations for your perfume.
Drop by drop by your own hand, the fragrance ingredients are added to the bottle. Base notes, heart notes, top notes – at each stage we check in to see how it is progressing.
This is an opportunity to explore parfum and re-discover your tastes in our luxury setting in the heart of the Gold Coast. A personal one on one consultation with a perfume maker.
How do you make your own perfume? What are the steps in making perfume? What are the ingredients? How do I know where to start? What is the perfume production process? Can I make perfume without alcohol? What are the best fragrance oils for perfume making?
These are questions that can take a lifetime of personal research and dedication to answer. If you wish to explore perfume and experience the perfume making process to design your own scent, we offer a one of a kind create your own perfume experience that will have you making your fragrance today.
“I want to make my own”, “I want to be hands on”, “I want to make it myself”, “I don’t like what’s out there”, “How do I do it?” “Where do I start?” These are the reasons we designed the Create Your Own Perfume experience over five years ago.
When people realised they were talking to professional perfume makers who actually design scent and make fragrance the very next thing they asked is “can I make my own?”.
We decided to say yes and make it possible.
If you have ever wanted to make your own perfume but have been uncertain as to how to start you have come to the right place. In the Fleurage Scent Design Studio (located at the Parkrise building Alison Street Surfers Paradise) we are one of the very few places to make your own perfume with the assistance of a professional perfume maker.
Consult with the perfumer about your personal tastes, explore fragrance oils for perfume making, then we create a formula for you (from the ingredients you like) to design your own scent. From the formula we can create parfum, eau de parfum and colognes or create perfume without alcohol.
80 specially selected ingredients to explore
Fragrance is a very personal choice.
What we as individuals find attractive in scent is not bounded by gender or dictated by marketing departments.
This is for people who know themselves and wish to reflect their being.
A beautiful opportunity to begin the journey into custom parfum, eau de parfum or oil perfumes.
Step into the secret world of fragrance making and explore the possibilities for men with eau de parfum, colognes and aftershaves.
During your session we discuss your most important topics while exploring and making.
How do you make your own perfume? What are the steps in making perfume? What are the ingredients?
Here are some common questions.
The first step in designing a personal scent begins with a scent profile – a questionnaire to understand your tastes. Our professional perfume maker will then create perfume making formula using your stated likes and ingredients tested by your own nose.
A discussion of your likes, industry ingredients, your own nose to select favourites and personal guidance by a fragrance maker means we can guarantee a classically structured perfume based on your likes.
We will guide you through the perfume making process so you will mix your own perfume and you will see the fragrance oils mixing and blending together.
The perfume oils are added from base to top notes so you can experience your perfume’s complexities building and changing. Seeing the oils mixing while you are making the fragrance is quite beautiful
A visit to the Fleurage Scent Design studio is more than a perfume making workshop, The Scent Design Studio is located in Surfers Paradise one of Australia's most iconic and relaxed locations four minutes walk from the beach.
Treat yourself. We are surrounded by attractions which means it is easy to turn your session into a wonderous perfume making day. We are one of only a few locations world-wide where you can make your own perfume and we are in one of Australia's most glorious locations.
The Create Your Own Perfume experience is designed using natural and high grade modern perfume ingredients. If you wish to create a natural perfume mixing essential oils for perfume please contact us using the form below.
To make perfume with essential oils requires additional time. There are more variables in perfume formulas with essential oils and additional time is required for blending to judge the outcome. Please use the form to contact us about making mens essential oil fragrances.Natural perfume creation from plant ingredients
There are thousands of ingredients for making perfume to choose from of various grades and origins. The perfume ingredients we use have been selected for their scent quality, purity and safety.
The best carrier oil for perfume is pure jojhoba oil if you are looking to create a perfume oil. Perfume oils are a very traditional form of fragrance where the scents from the ingredients is absorbed into the carrier oil. This form is particularly suitable for making natural perfume.
We use a very specific alcohol for perfume making. It is denatured perfume grade alcohol which we use for its properties of low scent interference and for legal compliance. Alcohol is used to break down the individual ingredient molecules and blend them into a new whole.
Making perfume without alcohol is also possible. Beautiful handmade perfume oil can be made by using an oil carrier. The Parfum Huille can then be applied to the skin using a dabber, a roll on or by touch.
What it's like to design your own scent
Hi Emma. I just wanted to let you know that I had a delightful experience this morning. I really loved how well you engage with me as a person, how you identified my likes and dislikes and helped me make a wonderful, individualised perfume, just for me. I have met 4 people since this morning and I've shared my wonderful experience with each of them. Best regards.
I would recommend Fleurage’s Create Your Own Perfume experience to anyone – it was such a fun, educational and enriching creative activity and it would appeal to both perfume aficionados and to those with no prior knowledge of fragrance. I had such a wonderful time making my own fragrance with Emma from Fleurage; it was a really magical experience and a wonderful way to make a tribute perfume both to my father and my own childhood scent memories.
The whole process is really quite fascinating and I would recommend it to anyone who loves perfume (and it would make a great gift for a milestone birthday or similar). My big tip for anyone considering a visit to Fleurage to create their own fragrance (apart from just do it!!) is to have a little think about the style of fragrance you might like to create. I hadn’t given that any thought at all, which probably made it harder for Emma to narrow down what I was after.
