Our Fragrance Experience is the ultimate way to relax, rewind and reward your special occasion. Perfumery is the art of blending fragrant botanical essential oils to create a perfume designed especially for you. This is the perfect way to celebrate special occasions such as weddings, product launches, birthdays, hen’s parties or family get-togethers – all with a unique and natural twist.

The workshop-style session starts with a demonstration of how to distil essential oils using a traditional alembic copper still, giving you an inside look at how the raw materials for fragrances are made and which key elements of scents work well together.
What follows is a leisurely introduction to the world of botanical plants and their fragrance. You will create your very own signature scent to celebrate your special occasion and take home your finished perfume to indulge yourself in a world of sensual smells. Your special occasion can be as intimate or as extravagant as your imagination.

“Looking for something completely unique? Interested in trying something a little bit special? The Botanical Distillery led our Book Club through the romantic world of fragrance to a place where time stands still. We learnt about the extraordinary properties of plants, mixed our own signature scents, made and sampled our own artisan gin and tonic and walked away totally inspired. Our Book Club members loved it… an experience not to be missed.”

“Thank you to The Botanical Distillery for our 2015 beauty consultants conference which was themed ‘Empower Yourself’. We all enjoyed the product creation very much and the next day each team had to put together a Power Point presentation to market their fragrances. All teams had great ideas and the winning team had a bit of fun marketing their product.”

“Thank you for our Christmas function at Casita Miro on Waiheke Island. We loved the additional element where teams had to name and tagline their fragrances before presenting them to the group. A fun afternoon at a fun vineyard on a fun island!”
