Ever fancied trying your hand at crafting your very own perfume?

Now's your chance, and you can give it a go at swanky venues including Burj Al Arab Jumeirah.

Holistic therapist Melanie Jane is putting on a series of perfume masterclasses, complete with a glass of sparkling grape and afternoon tea included.

The four-and-a-half-hour sessions teach you the basics of essential oils and perfume-making techniques, with the next session falling on Saturday September 29 at The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai from 10am-2.30pm, and prices starting from Dhs445.

The class includes a continental buffet breakfast on arrival before the class, as well as afternoon tea with sparkling grape after, and your tailor-made fragrance to take home..

A second perfume-making session, Seven Star Scent, will take place at the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah on Saturday November 10 from 10am to 3.30pm and will cost Dhs1,295. We didn’t say it was cheap…

If essential oils are more your thing, then Melanie Jane is also putting on three Aromas & Alchemy sessions, where you will learn to blend essential oils and come up with your own personal aromatherapy products.

The trilogy will kick off at The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai on Saturday September 22, followed by the second on Saturday October 20 and the final session on Saturday November 17 at the same venue.

Each session includes a Continental breakfast buffet on arrival, afternoon tea with a glass of sparking grape and your unique aromatherapy products like remedies, lotions, body mists and face oils, with packages starting from Dhs500.

“In these perfume workshops I have the opportunity to combine my passion for natural fragrances and desire for teaching new skills and bringing people together,” said Melanie Jane. “Participants discover the secrets of perfumery and what actually goes into the making of a good fragrance, while I guide them through the creation of their own bespoke signature scent that matches their personality”.
