Learn Perfumery in Bulgaria

This summer I will will be in Bulgaria exploring its lavender plantations from June 26th to June 30th, 2023. I’m partnering with Silvia Yonkova of Roseoverdose, to teach a perfume workshop during the Lavender Retreat of 2023. Silvia’s family has been in the flower growing business for generations and she has first-hand knowledge and expertise on many aromatic plants, including lavender. I have already collaborated with her during her Rose Retreat, and I am thrilled to join her again for the lavender adventure. Silvia is a wonderful host and all of her events are much acclaimed. And till May 31st, Bois de Jasmin readers can benefit from a 15% off the retreat price by using the code BOISDEJASMIN.
We will participate in the lavender harvest and learn how this aromatic plant is made into essential oil. We will also have perfume workshops designed to help you blend your own accords. The retreat will take place on the Bulgarian coast and it will be a wonderful opportunity to enjoy some time at the beach as well as in the flower gardens. I hope that you will join me.

For more information and booking, please visit Rose Overdose.
