Stories of Scent: Writing Your Own Scent Story

Do you want to tell your story, any story, in scent instead of words? How do you even do that? In this presentation, Sharon Falsetto Chapman will introduce you to the first part of her scent story method, using my background in writing, aromatherapy, and botanical perfumery. You’ll learn how to turn words into literal scent using this easy-to-learn method. This is a form of creative scent blending using essential oils, absolutes, and other aromatic botanicals, beyond that of the traditional aromatherapist role. Join and enjoy with both words and scent – and become a scent storyteller in the process!

Sharon Falsetto Chapman, BA (Hons), is a UK-certified aromatherapist, an experienced garden herbalist (and associate member of the American Herbalists Guild), and an artisan botanical perfumer.
