What you'll do

I will introduce you to the world of natural essential oil perfume. Either in the heart of New York City, or your hotel, home or desired location.

First, you'll learn exactly what essential oils are, how they are made, and why they are so healthy for the skin and body. Second, you'll smell up to 100 pure oils such as rose, patchouli, frangipani, lavender and lotus, bergamot, sandalwood, lemon grass etc.

Next, we'll discuss what type of energy you wish to gain from wearing your perfume. Once that is established, you'll continue to choose your favorite smelling oils until we have designed your own personal signature scent.

At the end of the workshop, you'll take home your pure, undiluted 10 ml blend.

Sessions for one person takes 1.5 hours, 2 or more persons approx 2 - 2.5 hours.

Event can take place in private office in Manhattan or even in your home in the NYC - metro area.

I cater to larger events too for corporate, 'girls night out' and bachelorette parties.

Hi. We're Elena and Stephen.

For the past 21 years I've worked as a professional aromatherapist & cosmetic formulator in New York, Ukraine and Prague. My focus is blending natural essential oils into perfumes that not only smell clean and fresh, but are totally free of harmful synthetic chemicals. 100% Essential oil perfume will detox your body and provide nutrition for a healthier lifestyle.

I personally traveled to many foreign lands, in search of the most powerful and pure oils. Egypt, Tunisia and France, to name a few. Allowing you to smell, feel, wear exotic blends. My personal collection exceeds 600 types.

Join me individually, or with your partner to design your signature scent. And now accepting booking from bachelorette parties and other large groups!

Where you'll be

The perfume making experience will take place in a cooperative meeting space called Breather. It is a brand new, totally decked out meeting space that is offered to people for short term meetings.

The two most common locations is 1123 Broadway or 1239 Broadway. Both in the heart of Manhattan.

Or I can come to your home, hotel or office. Especially if you are a larger group such as a bachelorette party. Get in touch so we can discuss.

Elena and Stephen have organized a unique workshop on essential oils and perfume composition. They were very friendly and welcoming from the first moments. They offered me a cup of tea, we sat around a table with numerous tiny bottles on and Elena started doing her magic. She picked up the first bottle and before opening it for me to smell it I tried to be clear with them from the beginning: I love citrus smells, I told them. Elena smiled, opened the bottle and gave it to me. It was bergamot! I was impressed! And the whole workshop went on like that. Familiar and unknown scents were offered to me to smell and choose from and each one of them was followed by a small story on where and how it’s produced, what effects it has to our body and what it tells us about our health if we like it or not. I don’t want to tell you any more details as I’m afraid I might spoil the magic of this workshop. I’ll just leave you with a conclusion: I left back home with an exquisite tailor made perfume that makes me feel well whenever I wear it made of essential oils mixed with a base of olive and jojoba oil (instead of alcohol as the industrial ones) which makes it evaporate slower thus last longer. When in Prague I definitely recommend this Airbnb experience.

Very impressed after this experience with Elena. The initial draw to her activity was the fact she uses real extracts from flowers and essential oils. Since my wife is very health conscious, I knew she would appreciate this as an anniversary gift. I had seen celebrities having ‘signature’ scents created for their significant others and this experience was just like that. At first I was a bit worried about all the questions she might ask about my wife’s preferences, since she wouldn’t be here in person to smell and pick out the scents, but sine I brought an empty bottle of the perfume my wife was using, it made it all the much easier. In the end Elena was somehow able to blend her essential oils into a nearly identical smell as the perfume bottle - just by smelling the old one. My wife loves her new scent, and says the freshness and crispness smells like a much more expensive or deluxe version of what she had been using. Would highly recommend.
