Olivia Clemence, a scent artist, is holding a free workshop on scent distillery in the Queen Elizabeth Hall. After you have found and captured a smell of the Southbank in a fabric, Olivia will show you how to use a steam distillation kit to transform the fabric’s scent into a scented liquid.
You’ll then be able to use the existing liquids like ‘bins’ or ‘coffee’ to create a scent that you think smells like the Southbank. You’ll even be given a miniature jar with your personalised Soutbank scent to take home with you. Come and be a scent professor until 4pm today.
