Perfume Plants of Bulgaria
Perfume Plants of Bulgaria
Take your nose on a trip and join our scent expedition in Bulgaria during the Lavender harvesting period, from June 24th to 28th, 2019.
Perfume Plants of Bulgaria is an aromatic tour that gives you the chance to explore raw perfume materials and introduces you to natural perfumery.
By all means the Rose is the ultimate perfume plant of Bulgaria but we should not forget the fact that our country is also a producer of lavender, lemon balm, rose geranium, chamomile, helichrysum, peppermint, angelica, clary sage, calendula, yarrow, pine and even tobacco.
That’s why we are inviting you to join our scent expedition in the heart of Bulgaria in the middle of the lavender season.
During the last week of June you will get introduced to natural perfumery and create perfume accords with a selection of locally produced essential oils and absolutes.
You will also have the chance to admire and explore two aromatic fields in the region - one with yarrow and one with lavender.
Visit a local distillery and see for yourself how lavender essential oil and lavender water are produced.
Check out the Essential Oils Museum and the Rose Museum, exploring history & culture of locally produced perfume materials.
Say “Yes” to self-love and mindfulness by joining the yoga practice plunged in lavender blossoms.
Enjoy a scented dinner and discover how some perfume plants can elevate your dining experience.
Take a tour in the Valley of Thracian Kings and see the ancient Thracian Tombs, the magnificent churches and other places of historical & cultural importance in the area.
If you are eager to refine your sense of smell, this experience will take you to the next level.
