Looking for unique things to do in the San Francisco Bay Area? You don’t have to be a celebrity to make your own fragrance. Discover how to make your own custom perfume or cologne with Opal’z in Mountain View. This could be an exciting new hobby, the special scent for your wedding day, a made-by-you addition to your collection, or a great gift!

Throughout the class, you'll be led by a friendly teacher, who will show you how to create your signature blend using quality fragrance and essential oils, and aroma blends. You will be seated, where all the materials you need to make your own unique creation will be supplied. The teacher will lead you through the different phases of this class step-by-step and show you all the necessary concepts as you work towards blending your own unique scent.

At the end of this hands-on workshop, you’ll have a written formula that you can use to recreate your signature scent again and again with ease. You’ll also choose a label for your creation, give it a name, and leave with your gorgeous creation that you can wear immediately or give your personalized fragrance as a gift.

The fragrance materials offered are those that both men and women love.

Please note: This class can take anywhere from one and a half hours to more than three hours. It just depends on how long each person wants to take to craft their scent.

We absolutely loved Annie and her class! Annie was kind enough to add us on to an already full class and we had so much fun! Annie is super knowledgeable, kind, funny and beyond helpful making sure the perfumes we created were well balanced and perfect! Can’t wait to take the level 2 Perfume class and a soap making class too! Highly recommend! :)

Ann is very knowledgeable and a good teacher. She provided plenty of high quality materials for us to explore and I went home with a unique perfume I really like. It was a great experience.

Sometimes you come across some experiences and it really blows your mind. This was one of those. We did this as a valentines day event. Our class was small so it felt more personal. Annie was such an amazing individual. We asked questions before starting and once it was time to go the class flowed smoothly. We were amazed at the process as it is one of a kind. The creations you can make is truly only limited by your imagination. I enjoyed using my creative nature to craft what I deemed a go to scent. If you are interested in soap/candle making, cologne/perfume making this is really a must.

Annie is a great teacher. She explained everything clearly and was very patient with us.

She has a cute little studio with everything we needed to make our fragrances.

We learned about essential oils and got to a smell a wide variety of aromas.

This was a great experience. Annie is super cool and I’d definitely do this again. I’m so happy to have gotten the opportunity to make my own custom smell.

Me and my friends had an amazing time. We learned a lot and the experience was more creative and fun than I expected. Annie gave very useful and clear structure while allowing plenty of room for experimentation and insight on how to improve our creations, and we were very happy to bring our own perfume home. Will definitely be back for more!

Opal was such an amazing teaching! We had so much fun in class that my husband is excited to do this again in the future. Opal was so thoughtful with her input, always just providing guidance but never taking over your creation. She’s incredibly knowledgeable and made herself available to help everyone with their perfume. What a fun way to bond with others with a souvenir you created uniquely for you! Would definitely recommend this experience!

My husband and I enjoyed the class a lot. During the class, we smelled the scents of various fragrances. The instructor Annie is very patient and knowledgeable. She helped us make modifications to our perfume so it is close to what we want. I like my perfume a lot. It keeps me calm and I will wear it in the future when I do yoga.

Great knowledgeable teacher. Felt home with her learning all from scratch. She was always patient and down to earth. My wife YASMINE and I learned so much from her. That was a nice foundation into perfume making. Still thirsty to learn more and will be on the lookout for future sessions. Thanks so much
