The Art of Incense


Next Available: 19 Oct 6:30PM
2.0 hours

Description

Incense is considered to be one of the earliest types of scent. Its fragrant smoke sending prayers to the heavens ‘per –fumum’ (literally ‘by smoke’). We become transported from our daily lives into a sacred place. 

In this workshop; perfumer Jocelyn Fullerton will be introducing you to incense ingredients, incense forms and incense blends. We will talk of incense games, incense clocks, and how incense can be used to perfume you and your home. 

She will transport you and take you on a sensory journey through time and place to the origins of incense, the myths, legends and lands incense ingredients come from.

In this 2 hr workshop, you will get to sample precious resins, woods, spices, herbs and flowers. You will also have a chance to create your own incense blend to take home.

Tutor profile:

A little known secret is that some of perfumer Jocelyn Fullertons’ earliest experiments in scent were recreating ancient incense recipes to smell through time and learning the art of filling a space with fragrant vapours of precious resins such as frankincense, copal and myrrh. She has worked on recreating medieval temple blends, incense beads to wear and cones to burn.  You can still smell the influence of incense in the fragrances she creates for her fragrance brand Cult of Scent (since 2009).

Jocelyn has 12 years experience in teaching to a wide variety of audiences and loves to share her encyclopaedic knowledge of raw materials used in incense, fragrances, ritual, medicines and cosmetics. 

She lives for light bulb moments in her classes and workshops and is inspired by the creativity of the people she works with.
