Ilya Perfumery

Perfume – make your own fragrance session.  An individual or a group experience: £30/per person

“We handmake and hand-finish all our perfumes at our small studio in Southampton, England. We weigh the ingredients, synthesise the pure parfum and bottle the finished fragrance by hand. We do this in line with the ILYA philosophy; perfumery is an Art, and each ILYA composition must therefore reflect the hands-on creative spirit. The majority of perfume brands have their fragrances made by commercial perfumers in big industrial settings.

"Our bottles are from Italy and are made from superior white flint glass. Our packaging is minimalistic, timeless and more importantly, recyclable (minus the cap). We are committed to keeping our carbon footprint low by avoiding the use of electrical equipment in our studio where possible”.
