Good & Proper Tea are delighted to welcome Maya Njie to the Tea Bar to host our first-ever Bespoke Perfume Making Workshop.
Over the course of the two hour workshop, you will get a taster for what it’s like to blend your very own bespoke perfume. A selection of 20 ingredients that span across top, heart and base notes will be available to use under Maya’s guidance. The ingredients are ‘unisex’ and we strongly encourage anyone of any gender to come and create their own fragrance. These high quality ingredients are commonly used in the perfume industry and will be a mixture of naturals and synthetics - all compliant with both EU and IFRA 48 regulations.
NB: You will be required to fill in a health and safety form on arrival.
Your ticket includes:
- Welcome drinks and crumpet canapés
- A booklet to work from and take notes on your formula
- A 20ml pipette bottle to take your creation home in
- A 7.5ml travel sized vial to decant the perfume into for ease of use.
Maya Njie Perfumes was founded in 2016. A niche perfume brand with a clear focus on high quality artisanal blends, the scents are deeply rooted in Maya's Swedish and West African culture. All formulas are developed in-house, using a variety of essential oils, aroma compounds and resins. Making use of both naturals and synthetics in her creations - it’s nature and science combined. Ingredients such as musk and ambergris are synthetic substitutes and does not derive from its animal origin counterpart.
With care and precision, the blends are mixed in small fresh batches, filtered and bottled individually by hand. Drawing on her education in surface design, Maya has designed bespoke packaging by incorporating the dreamy colour ways extracted from her family’s photographs. In this way, Maya saw to fruition, her desire to reconstruct through her perfumes, those elusive moments which otherwise may have slipped quietly away. The tones are of a time, and the accords nostalgic, yet the end products are notably contemporary.
