In this “affordable” listicle, I’m rounding up 3 perfume workshops in Singapore. I’ve personally visited and tried all the perfume workshops mentioned in this article, and have enjoyed all of them.

If you haven’t tried a perfume workshop before, you’re missing out.

Whether you’re a perfume enthusiast or simply looking for a fun date night idea, attending a perfume workshop in Singapore – whereby you get to craft a personalised bottle of perfume – will make for a great experience. Here are three great workshops to try out:

1) Scentopia

Scentopia is a recently opened scent attraction in Sentosa. It’s the brainchild of Mrs. Prachi, who’s also behind the fragrance label Singapore Memories and the Perfume Workshop.

Who they are: “Scentopia is the latest tourist attraction at Siloso Beach, Sentosa. We aim to focus on Singapore’s unique floral heritage and assist tourists and locals in creating their Signature scent based on their personality.”

My opinion: Scentopia is an inherently unique proposition – I can’t think of any other scent attractions in Singapore, much less one in a tourist destination such as Sentosa. The perfume workshop process was fun and engaging, with a very different concept as compared to the other local perfume workshops in Singapore. The revamped Scentopia experience is also a significant step up from the previous iteration. Firstly, the workshop is more interactive, providing participants with a fun and immersive experience. Secondly, the end product feels more upscale as well, especially with the atas engraved bottle and bag. Lastly, Scentopia’s 100ml perfume workshop is a great value proposition at $106 (after the promo code below), especially considering that prices have not changed since two years ago despite the enhanced experience and inflation. For more details, do read my review of Scentopia’s refreshed perfume workshop here.

What you get: 1-hour perfume workshop experience, with a 100ml bottle of perfume to take back home.

Prices: The 100ml perfume workshop is priced at $125. Use the promo code “WAHSOSHIOK” to enjoy a 15% discount on all weekday bookings online here.

2) Maison 21G

Maison 21G specialises in “tailor-made perfumes”, allowing customers to create their unique scent at an affordable price.

With Pocholo of Maison 21G.

Who they are: “We’re a House of Scent Designers. Come inside and feel empowered to experiment with the finest ingredients. With us, you’ll be able to unlock your soul scent. Free of all toxins and hazards, this is a scent of your own. Made by you, for you.”

My opinion: I love Maison 21G – they are undoubtedly one of my personal favourites on this list. Their Duxton Road boutique is welcoming and beautifully designed, though they do have a new ION outlet (pictured above) as well. At Maison 21G’s perfume workshop, participants can learn about the history and art of perfume making, as well as get the opportunity to bespeak their scent. I find their online personality quiz – whereby they recommend specific ingredients based on your personality and needs – to be pretty cool, and it’s a unique selling point for the brand. Maison 21G also offers free engraving (both text and pictures) on each of their perfume bottles, so they make great gifts as well. For those interested, I chronicled my experience of attending a workshop at Maison 21G’s Duxton outlet here, at their ION outlet here, and most recently at their new MBS outlet here. I also recently revisited its Duxton outlet, and reviewed my experience here.

What you get: 1-hour perfume workshop experience, with a customised 30ml bottle of perfume to keep.

Prices: Maison 21G’s perfume workshop starts at $180.

3) Jetaime Perfume Workshop

One of the first perfume workshops in Singapore, Jetaime Perfume Workshop offers its workshop in both Mandarin and English, and possesses an impressive 5.0 perfect Google review rating.

Ms. Xin Ying of Jetaime Perfumery conducted the perfume workshop.

Who they are: Jetaime Perfumery is the sister brand of Singapore Memories, a local brand offering Singapore-inspired perfumes and room fragrances. Established in 2014, the brand was one of the first to offer perfume workshops to the local market.

My opinion: I found Jetaime Perfume Workshop to be an intriguing experience, and enjoyed smelling all the bottles of perfumed oils and coming up with a unique concoction that is based on my taste. I learnt that perfumery – like watchmaking, tailoring and shoe-making – is a complex and intricate field, and I’m glad to have had a small insight into the world of perfumery. At two hours long, I would say that it’s a tad more detailed than the other two perfume workshops on this list. You also get the most amount of perfume to bring home here, a whopping 120ml in total. It’s a value-for-money pick, though some aspects of the workshop (such as the paper personality quiz) felt dated at times. The locations aren’t the most accessible as well, with one outlet located at Goodman Art Centre in Mountbatten and the other at Sentosa. For those interested, I wrote about my experience at Jetaime Perfume Workshop here.

What you get: 2-hour perfume workshop experience, 2 perfume samples of 10ml, and 1 customised perfume bottle of 100ml to keep. Name engraving is available for free if the workshop is booked a week in advance.

Prices: A couple workshop at Jetaime Perfume Workshop is $125 per pax (or $250 total). At the present moment, the brand does not offer perfume workshops for just one person, only for 2-5 pax.

Where to book: Interested readers can book their appointment online here.


A perfume workshop is a great way to spend a nice night out with your significant other. Of course, it doesn’t have to be a romantic event – even if you’re attending a perfume workshop with a bunch of friends, it will also be a blast. Alternatively, if you have always been interested in perfumes and the concoction of fragrances, then attending a perfume workshop is a great first step to entering the world of perfumery. Learn about perfumes, have a fun time with your partner or friends, and support local brands at the same time – what’s not to like?
