The art of selecting the perfect fragrance is something that has stumped scent-crossed lovers for centuries. Chiefly, because a bouquet has the ability to produce counter reactions like attraction or revulsion. While sniffing paper rectangles smothered in celebrity-endorsed aqua is the typical way to find your scent, there are other more meaningful ways to shop for smells.

Creating a fragrance from scents forged and found in nature is one particular avenue. Perfume Playground is a first-of-its-kind scent lab that allows guests to play around with natural scents from over 100 raw materials and blend them together into wearable art.

Perfume Playground's Samantha Copland is hosting a series of intimate workshops inspired by the seasons, in partnership with Auckland Art Gallery's membership program. At each workshop, participants will enjoy a chocolate and tea tasting at the Gallery before learning about perfume design and selecting natural essences for a unique, signature fragrance.

The next Fragrance Design workshop will focus on winter. It will take place on Saturday 25 August in Auckland Art Gallery's Members Lounge.
