Chemistry of Oo - Bukhoor Mixology Workshop
By Oo La Lab
Part of Stay a Little Longer
Join our resident perfumery Oo La Lab in The Yard, for ‘Chemistry of Oo,’ a sensorial Bukhoor workshop.
Bukhoor (Arabic spelling: بخور), or Bakhour or Bakhoor is an Arabic word which means Fumes, is vastly known for performing houses or surroundings. Craft your own ritual Bukhoor fragrance that will evoke character, mood & context.
Bukhoor is a small disc-shaped incense which is an infusion of perfumed oils, and is burnt in the same way as oud to create the dukhoon scent. This workshop will guide you on how to make these traditional Arabian scents at home. You will then receive instruction on how to mix the oils with oud. At the end of this class, you'll get to take home your choice of 100gms.
You will design your own unique Bukhoor fragrance based on a curated process of sampling and formulating your perfume from a selection of primary and modifier notes.
Expect a highly engaging multisensory experience through the now cult-like ‘Chemistry of Oo Sessions’, a hands-on perfume discovery workshop.
