International Fragrance Day is celebrated every year on March 21st to promote the art and science of perfumery and to encourage people to appreciate the role of fragrance in our daily lives.

Here are some ideas on how to celebrate this day:

Wear your favorite fragrance

Put on your favorite scent or try something new that you’ve been meaning to test out. Share your fragrance choice with friends or family, or even on social media using the hashtag #InternationalFragranceDay #perfumeplayground

Create your own fragrance

Experiment with essential oils and create your own custom scent. You can also attend a perfume-making workshop or class to learn more about the art of perfumery. Why not try our Native & Wild Kit.

Visit a perfume museum

Many cities around the world have museums dedicated to the history and art of perfumery. Take a trip to a perfume museum near you to learn more about the industry and its cultural significance.

Indulge in a fragrance-related activity

Watch a movie or read a book that features fragrance, such as “Perfume: The Story of a Murderer” by Patrick Süskind or “The Perfume Collector” by Kathleen Tessaro. You can also attend a fragrance-related event or exhibition in your area.

Appreciate fragrance in nature

Take a walk outside and appreciate the natural scents around you, such as blooming flowers or fresh herbs. Consider planting your own fragrant garden or using essential oils to create a calming atmosphere in your home.

Remember, International Fragrance Day is about celebrating the role of fragrance in our lives and exploring the art and science of perfumery. Find a way that speaks to you and enjoy the day!

Let us help you discover a new fragrance that is all your own.

Join and celebrate with us at one of our workshops.

International Fragrance Day


Choose a New Favorite

We’re excited to be hosting an exclusive sensory experience this Saturday 30 July, in celebration of International Fragrance Day.

There’s no rule claiming you must wear the same perfume for the rest of your life, no matter how much you love it. After all, variety is the spice of life!

We want you to have the freedom to choose again, to create something special and with a bestie, date night, colleague or friend. 

Try an exciting new fragrance direction, or build on anything you’ve made with us before. Either way, our hosts will be there to offer expert guidance as you play and create.

As an official member, we’d love you to spend International Fragrance Day with Perfume Playground.
