• "Design With Scents" returns at Kingston University in July

    Pioneering the teaching of fragrance for design innovation, the third edition of the 5-day workshop returns at Kingston University London 14-18 July 2014. Designers and fragrance lovers will discover how scent is a powerful communication tool at work and home, this year featuring Design With Scents Alumni as guest speakers.

    Through an interactive, multi-sensory study programme, participants develop new design skills, explore the sense of smell, experiment with blending oils and receive their own personal fragrance kit. ‘Design with Scents’ is open to students and professionals from across all creative industries who will benefit from enhancing their projects and learning to communicate an idea to an audience.


    This year Design With Scents Alumni return to share their scent projects. They are Advertising Strategist and Beauty Specialist Ada Ooi, Olfactory Artist Kyung Park, Textile Designer Hyoi Kim, Wine journalist Maggie Rosen and Founder of Fifth Sense Duncan Boak.
