Outside of the realm of perfumeries, our olfactive workshops will teach you to tame and hone your sense of smell and recognize different odors that spark emotions in you. The sense of smell is linked to memory, you thus often relate some souvenirs and feelings to a precise smell. With this sense of smell workshop, you’ll also work with your memory and brain at the same time.
