Wildwood's lush tropical bush came alive with creativity and fragrance as we hosted the much-awaited Perfume Making Masterclass with the esteemed Scentsmith, Ainslie Walker. We are thrilled to share that this sensational event was an absolute success, leaving our guests mesmerised and their senses tantalised.
The day began with eager participants gathering in our naturally formed sandstone cave, nestled beside a serene creek. As the gentle breeze carried scents of the bush, Ainslie Walker warmly welcomed everyone to the enchanting world of perfumery.
Under Ainslie's expert guidance, our guests delved into the rich history of perfumery and explored the raw materials that form the heart of fragrance creation. With passion and creativity, each attendee embarked on the journey of designing their very own signature scent. It was a delightful sight to witness individuals blending unique combinations, each painting a fragrant picture that reflected their personality and style.
The atmosphere was filled with excitement and laughter as participants experimented with various notes, infusing their creations with memories and emotions. From floral and woody to spicy and citrusy, the scents that emerged were as diverse as the individuals themselves.
At Wildwood, we believe in treating our guests to the finest experiences. To complement this fragrant adventure, we offered a delectable morning tea sourced from our local farmers, paired with French Champagne to elevate spirits and celebrate the joy of creation.
Ainslie Walker's expertise and artistic vision shone through as she shared her knowledge of fragrances sourced from around the globe. Our participants were in awe of the exclusive access to these exquisite materials, ensuring their perfumes were crafted with nothing but the best.
Scentsmith's reputation as an award-winning international fragrance journalist, scent designer, artist, consultant, and product developer preceded her, and she lived up to every accolade. We are honoured to have hosted an event endorsed by prestigious publications like Broadsheet Sydney, Good Weekend Magazine, Concrete Playground, Woman's Weekly, and more.
The Perfume Making Masterclass at Wildwood was more than just a workshop; it was an immersive experience that left an indelible mark on every participant. As the day drew to a close, the air was filled with the scents of dreams turned reality, ready to accompany our guests on their future journeys.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Ainslie Walker for sharing her expertise and passion with us and making this event possible. A special thank you to all the participants who embraced their creativity and embarked on this fragrant adventure with enthusiasm.
