LA-based fragrance lovers, do I have a destination for you! If you haven’t already checked out Blunda Aromatics, the West Hollywood fragrance studio and boutique centered around natural botanical perfumes and essential oils, this is the time. On March 28, Blunda Aromatics will host the first of eight monthly events with natural perfumers from around the country (and Canada!). Niche perfumers like Dawn Spencer Hurwitz and Ayala Moriel will chat about their perfumes and the natural botanicals they use and give you plenty of time to sniff the samples.
You’ll get a lesson in the art of natural fragrance and discover some new favorites. If you’re scent-obsessed like me, you’ll want to check out these free events regularly and maybe even sign up for one of the natural perfumery classes taught by Blunda’s owner, aromatherapist and perfumer Persephenie. Might you be the next niche perfumer out there? Overall, perfume could be the hardest element of your beauty routine to turn completely natural since fragrances are so often synthetic.
‘Fragrance’ is an ingredient in so many of our beauty products that’s still one big grey area that will hopefully get clearer in the future. For now, educate yourself and meet other natural beauty fans at Blunda Aromatics while you pick up a new scent that reflects your commitment to natural products!
