The class was part lecture and part hands on. The instructor was knowledgable and circulated around the room giving all participants her attention. It was fun even for a novice as well as those interested in starting a business. Handouts were provided for future reference, and each participant left with 3 creations as was promised in the course description.

Instructor could have structured her talk better. So many questions were asked that we didn't have much time to make scents. Could also have more essential oils to choose from. But overall good class and it was fun making your own perfume.
