Everyone harbours a love for perfumes but when it comes to creating signature fragrances, it is no child’s play.
A multi-sensory workshop of perfumery was conducted by Gauri Garodia the founder and creative director of Code Deco perfumes and the host for the evening’s perfumer’s workbench at Moon River Store in the Capital.
The workshop was a treat for the olfactory senses. Through a slide show Garodia guided the audience through the art of making perfumes and recognising fragrances. Paper strips were handed out the audience to allow a first-hand experience.
Garodia explained how fragrances work with moods and how people unwittingly choose a fragrance without knowing what guides them. Her products are based on specific fragrances designed for both men and women who possess the savoir vivre and its indulgences.
Drawing inspiration from her love of literature, travel, music and art, Garodia has carefully come up with three fragrances–Jazz, Feminite and Detour. ‘I was very fortunate that when I was young, the nature of my father’s work allowed us to travel. That really opened my eyes to the cultures of the world,’ shares Garodia, ‘And since images speak so much more than words, I’ve chosen a different image to name and communicate the personality of each fragrance so that customers can easily relate to them.’
