Description

What you will do
You will learn about the history of perfume, fragrance extraction, and the future of smells. Step by step, this workshop covers information on raw materials, molecules, dilutions, and altogether covers the basic strategies for perfume blending. By mixing top, middle and base notes, you will compose your own 10 ml perfume with the help of a scent library.

Note: We also offer other workshops on smell. If you would like to learn more about fragrance extraction, check out our Distilling a Scent Bouquet workshop on the same day.

The Location

Located in Dijkspark at the head of the Dijksgracht, Mediamatic, is within walking distance of Amsterdam's Central Station and the city center. It offers a great panoramic city and waterfront view, Also with views of the Nemo Museum and the Amsterdam, Muziekgebouw/Bimhuis. It is a prime location melting pot of different activities that cater the trends happening in the city.

Mediamatic serves as an international network hub with a physical location in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. In the Myco Design Lab we explore the possibilities of designing with living organisms. We believe that the mycelium, the root system of mushrooms, will eventually replace plastic.

Currently we are making insulation from mycelium using the waste from our brewery. We use this insulating material for isolating a nineteenth century barn, the project space where we organize our lectures.
