During the Essence of Excellence challenge, teams are tasked with creating and blending an individual fragrance that appeals to a given market. After learning the basic techniques of perfumery, teams blend the base and mid and top notes to create a male, female, or unisex fragrance, along with a targeted marketing campaign. Designed to be a breakout session or evening entertainment, the Essence of Excellence helps attendees understand customer satisfaction as well as improve team communication.

Space Requirement

This is an indoor creative team building activity for work so we will need a large, private function space with a round table for each team. Chairs for each participant are required. A stage area at the front of the room is recommended for team presentations, and if the group is larger than 50 people we will also need a microphone and speaker setup.

Ideal For

This event is perfect for groups looking to:

  • Stimulate creative thinking
  • Increase brand awareness
  • Inspire excellence
  • Understand other people’s point of view


Whether planned as a breakout session, group outing, or full-day creative team building activity for work, this custom-blending fragrance workshop offer a unique, creative way to improve communication skills, express company goals, and encourage camaraderie.

Event Description

This ‘scent-sational’ team building event can help improve the chemistry between your employees.  Signature scents are big business, but behind the glossy ads are teams of professional alchemists, experimenting with all manner of exotic extracts to capture the essence of their celebrity endorsers. The Essence of Excellence places teams in this demanding role, presenting a challenge to create and blend a unique fragrance that appeals to a given target market.

Teams will work swiftly and efficiently, carefully choosing ingredients with a range of moods and character traits. Having learned the basic techniques of perfumery, teams will blend base, mid and top ‘notes’ to create a ready-to-wear fragrance. Their creations are by no means restricted to female fragrances; some teams will be working with unisex and male customer profiles.

Successful teams will understand the world from their customer’s perspective, aiming to produce both a new fragrance and an associated targeted marketing campaign while also sticking to a strict deadline. The Essense of Excellence provides a fun context to explore company values and customer satisfaction, network or improve team communication.

Even with all of the packaged event options we offer, you may need something different. Maybe a special conference theme, favorite management book, ideal training model or a unique set of learning outcomes… We can help.
