Myeongdong DIY Perfume Workshop | Photo Reviews

Before you start creating your own fragrance, the instructor will run you through a simple personality test (Chinese) to test your personality traits and give recommendations based on the test results. At the end of the session, you can choose your final scent from 7 recommended scents. 

After finishing the personality test, the instructor will give you recommendations on the perfume base. Test the scents carefully and decide on your favorites! Tell your instructor those scents and you are now set to go for the next step!

The instructor will explain the process with patience. However, you need to keep some rules to make a fragrance. For example, you only need one drop of fragrance to test the scent. When you are tired of a particular scent, you can refresh your senses by smelling coffee beans. 

Last not least, drop 20 droplets of your final scent and add it to your perfume base, and TADA! Your perfume is ready! When you use the perfume two weeks later, it will smell even better.
