A couple of weeks ago I was invited by the lovely Nancy (who I met through blogging) to spend an evening at Homemade London. I brought my friend Hannah along for a fun evening of card embossing, flower making, perfume mixing, and napkin printing. Along with some amazing cocktails and beautiful snacks (meringues, strawberries and cream in teacups!), it was a lovely way to spend an evening after work chatting and crafting away.
I sadly missed the beginning of the session as I was running late after work, but I got settled into the start of the perfume making. I thoroughly enjoyed this as I’d never done it before. We spoke about top, middle, and base notes, and passed around the various scents, seeing how different they smelt on each person. I chose to make a perfume called ‘Pick Me Up’ which was light and Summery, with 3 drops of Geranium and 2 drops of Mandarin mixed into odorless coconut oil.
I would definitely look into the workshops for a fun hen party activity (they teach everything from lingerie making to candle making!) and it is such a beautiful and creative space to be in as well. x
