Botanical Perfume Studio Workshop

We invite you to embark on the next part of your botanical perfume journey with us through this brand new workshop. There are two different dates to choose from.

During two hours of studio time, you will have the opportunity to make three different perfumes from the botanical perfumer's organ of 18 key absolutes & essential oils that you worked with in the original workshop. As a special addition, we will open up our vault to feature some limited edition fragrance materials for you to work with and incorporate into your perfumes!

This workshop will be led by Carole Addison-Goyne and will be limited to a small group to ensure a high touch experience with one-on-one time for everyone.

From medicine to magic, botanical essences have been a part of our lives for centuries. Engaging with them is akin to time travel, where we can smell and experience the same aromas our ancestors did, straight from the earth. Enveloping ourselves daily with the life force of botanicals through perfumery is one of the great pleasures of life, and engaging in the art of creating perfume is something to behold.


About Carole:

Our Nomad Botanicals Founder, Carole Addison-Goyne, has been in the aromatherapy, botanical perfumery, and natural products field for the past three decades. She has been fortunate to study with world-renowned mentors along her path, including Kurt Schnaubelt, PhD and Mandy Aftel, who are both international authorities and best-selling authors in their fields. Carole apprenticed and worked with Kurt Schnaubelt, PhD for years, teaching aromatherapy certification seminars and overseeing his essential oil business. Carole has also received several Natural Perfumery Slow Scent® Certifications from Mandy Aftel and continues to find some of her greatest joy in teaching about this timeless craft. Additionally, Carole was influenced by the pioneering botanical legacy of Horst Rechelbacher during her 15-year tenure as an executive with Aveda.

Through the years, Carole and her husband, Scott, have distilled essential oils in Northern California, and they were also engaged in the development of bringing to market medicinal and aromatic plants from Morocco, through a USAID project. In the midst of all of these endeavors, Carole earned her MBA and also followed her nose to Aveda where she spent a decade and a half in an executive leadership role. Through Carole's collective experiences, the concept of Nomad Botanicals was born. With a dream team beside her, the Nomad journey continues to evolve with vibrancy each day. Creating and sharing high quality aromatherapy lifestyle products with people around the world is Carole's dream come true.

Outside of Nomad Botanicals, Carole is a Director on the Board of Directors for HenHouse Brewing Company, which she and her husband co-founded after converting some of their essential oil stills into brewing equipment. She has also dedicated herself to community service, from chairing the MBA Alumni Forum at Sonoma State University in recent years to her current stewardship, serving as Secretary on the Board of the Sonoma Valley Certified Farmers' Market. Carole's involvement in her local community reflects her core values of being grateful and giving back.
