Join Ayala for a series of fun and interactive, hands-on workshops integrating theory and practice of olfactory and culinary arts. Learn how to create perfumed products and beautifully flavoured foods with essential oils, floral waters, fresh spices and herbs. These workshops have no pre-requisites, except that you must sign up and pay in advance to reserve your spot, as spaces are extremely limited. Most classes and workshops are held at Ayala Moriel Parfums studio, and have spaces for 6 students. Group booking is most recommended if you want to ensure the workshop you're interested in will run at the date of your choice. Gather a group of up to 5 more friends, and sign up for an experience of a lifetime creating your own scented products!
Many of the workshops are suitable for special events such as bridal showers/stagettes, birthday parties, retirement parties, and other lifetime landmarks.

This Virtual Scent-Trip is an Incense & Tea Ceremony that is inspired by Jules Verne's novel and the ongoing travel restrictions: an evening around the world through scent and aroma. We'll follow Phileas Fogg's route with his French butler Passepartout - enjoying French lavender, sipping English tea, exploring Calabrian Etrog, and exotic incense and perfumes such as Egyptian Kyphi, Ethiopean myrrh, Indian Attars and Nag Champa incense, Sandalwood incense from the Buddhist shrines of Hong Kong, rare aromas from the Japanese ceremonial bath and incense games, and we'll complete our round trip with North America's botanical treasures - Western Redcedar, White Sage, Tobacco and Sweetgrass, before returning to London for more tea and hot scones with jam.
Can be scheduled in person at a date and time that is convenient for you and up to 8 other discerning souls; or online via Zoom for up to 20 people, with an accompanying kit of all the incenses, teas and perfumes to experience that you will receive in the mail in advance when joining remotely, and a winning recipe for scones (the kit is included in the pricing).
P.s. This unique scent-trip is in loving memory of Ruth Moriel, who has circumvented the world more than once in her first 88 years of life. She lived on for another nine years traveling to shorter distances, not any less enjoyable and adventurous. She has survived WWII, escaped the Holocaust and countless wars and battles in her life, until she crossed over to the other realm peacefully in her sleep during the first COVID-19 lock-down in April 2020. Ruth will be forever remembered, loved and missed by her daughters, grandchildren and great-grand-children, and many other family members and friends for whom she has always been a source of inspiration and support.
