Perfume Competition

Half-Term project 16th-21st February

This will be a week long project for 15-20 participants over spring half-term.  The young people will learn about fragrance, essential oils and the skills involved in perfume making including the calming, energising and mood-enhancing properties different scents have.  They will learn practical skills and have the opportunity, with guidance, to make their own perfume.  The programme will include a guest speaker(s) (who will be one of the judges) and a field trip to South London Botanical institute where the children will learn about plants and their origins.

At the end of the project the participants will all receive a certificate & the three selected perfume makers will receive a prize of a 1920’s perfume bottle.

The Project will be led by Lamont’e Johnson, director of ‘Bling Ya Bike’ and  ‘Bling Ya Fashion’
