An early summer retreat and masterclass in natural perfume in collaboration with Porcelain Perfumery.
On this 3 night retreat in Tuscany, founder and natural perfumer at PORCELAIN, Stine Hoff will advise you on how to design your own signature scent, using a series of natural, premium-grade materials and botanical ingredients such as rosemary, black pepper, lime, sage, jasmine. Gathering inspiration from the natural world, masterclass attendees will be guided through an evocative, olfactory journey of scent and memory.
Additional activities and experiences include creative workshops at the Villa Lena flower garden and the artists studios, daily yoga and of course farm to table feasting and a Tuscan pasta workshop. All taking place at Villa Lena where participants can enjoy the luxurious rooms with views of the pink villa, take a swim in the heated pool, explore the magical woodlands and visit the artist’s studios for an aperitivo.
Making perfume takes time. Natural perfumes require great skill and patience to create. This form of slow beauty allows us to carefully cultivate scents in a holistic way and combined with yoga, food and creative workshops this retreat will be creative, relaxing and fun.
Villa Lena is a cosmos unto itself, full of cultural history and contemporary spirit, it makes the perfect place for a sensory and hands on experience. Between striped parasols and wild fennel you´ll find corners to relax and yourself with a glass of the Villa Lena rosé at the artist aperitivo or around the pool with a great book.
Participants will be housed in luxury designed rooms that offer breathtaking views of the Tuscan hills. Within the program of events there will be plenty of space to explore and enjoy some time to yourself and the facilities Villa Lena has to offer, including a heated pool and tranquil yoga studio.
Price start from: €1690 per person
