Of the five sensory faculties, smell is the most undervalued, as evidenced by humanity’s widespread tolerance of uncle-instigated nose theft. Sniff out olfactory appreciation with today’s Groupon to Ayala Moriel Parfums. Choose between the following options:

Ayala Moriel Parfums teaches novice olfactory artists how to craft natural perfumes from pure, raw materials through a series of hands-on lectures and workshops. Helmed by an expert instructor, an Introduction to Natural Perfumery interactive lecture expounds upon the construction of a perfume, from its fragrant essential building blocks to the carving of decorative top-note gargoyles. Nascent sniffers bulk up their smelling muscles through a series of experiential exercises, which include evaluating unique scents from around the world. The theme of each one-hour lecture changes seasonally and helps participants delve into the thinking process of a perfumer without the hassle of stealing one of their dream journals.

Those opting for the Personalized Perfume Making Workshop learn how to weave a signature scent from botanical essences and grain alcohol. Each workshop is capped at six people to ensure one-on-one instruction, thoroughly answered questions, and even numbers for post-class chest bumps. Pupils spend their time toiling over their custom bouquets, marrying scents that combine to forge personalized aromatic bliss. Once the redolent brew has been assembled, students can tote their newly hatched concoctions home in a spray bottle dappled with labelling provided by Ayala Moriel Parfums. As all supplies are included with the workshop, scent scholars can leave their portable distillers and patchouli-filled thermoses at home.

Ayala Moriel Parfums

Ayala Moriel breathes in the warm ocean breezes and fragrant sage blossoms of her childhood in the Mediterranean each time she bottles up a new hand-crafted perfume, fragrance, and body product. Though her signature line of fragrances tallies nearly 50 different scents, she and her staff conduct fragrance consultations to help clients create their own custom aromas from her cruelty-free collection of botanical ingredients. Luring guests and small satellites into its aromatic atmosphere, Moriel's artisan perfume studio regularly stages an array of events, including public and private tea parties, perfumery classes, and culinary workshops.

I appreciate how you took your time in teaching us the theory, science, and tips and tricks to make our own perfumes. Your gluten-free baked goods were also amazing, as was your tea...I hope you'll be having more customers soon as I've recommended your service to my friends :)
