Natural Perfume Workshop
Reviewed by Sarah W. on 11/21/2022
The class was nice and I am pleased with the end result. it was a fun activity to do with a friend. It was very quiet and a little less structured. there was an extra hour that could have been used to foster discussion or bring people together. The larger class size made it trickier to all be smelling the same thing at the same time and discussing it. It would have been nice to make a sticker or label to further customize the perfume.
