Our COVID safety measures

We are a small, family-run business so we take the safety of our guests and staff very seriously - cuz our staff are literally family!

Until further notice, we are limiting the number of workshop guests in our open classes to half capacity, which is 6 guests. We are leaving a seat open between guests and offering gloves for interaction with the fragrance bottles. Upon arrival, we will take your temperature, ask you to complete a health questionnaire and ask you to sanitize your hands. Our work studio has a medical-grade Austin-Air air purifier with HEPA filter to remove bacteria & viruses from the air which runs continuously 7 days/week and through the night. We thank you for your understanding during this time and are excited to provide you with the best and safest workshop we possibly can.

What is included in the Workshops?

Your price includes a 2-hour class led by an experienced perfumer. We provide you with access to a limited range of perfume notes and accords in the Scent Blending 101 class, and a broader range of up to 160 notes/accords in our Apprentice level classes. At the end of the workshop, you will have a travel size fragrance that you created to take home. We will keep your formula on file in the event you would like to come back for a refill.

 

Beverages are provided including soda, sparkling waters, coffee, tea & chilled filtered water. Guests are permitted to bring light snacks (nothing heated) but will need to provide their own paper products. Guests over 21 are welcome to bring 1-2 bottles of wine to enjoy during the class. Please note that our ALCOHOL POLICY limits consumption to 2 glasses per person for safety reasons, as we are working around a lot of glass. We are happy to provide stemware and a corkscrew for your use.

 

For added safety, we offer all of our guests the use of aprons, safety goggles & gloves. Guests will use or not use at their own risk.

Are these workshops for men too?

Everyone with a nose, over age 15, is welcome!

Both men and women will enjoy our workshops. While all fragrance is gender neutral, we have curated the ingredients to be sure that there are notes that you would find in traditional masculine and feminine scents. The workshop is a blend of science & creativity, perfect for anyone with a curious nature!

What if the date I want is booked?

We often add new dates so please come back and check our website regularly. You can subscribe to CLUB INDIE HOUSE or follow us on social media to be the first informed when we add new dates and special events.

Can I book all of the seats for my group?

We love parties! There are two ways to celebrate your special moments with us in a workshop:

OPTION #1: Have your group all purchase seats at the same event

    Allows guests the to pay individually

    You do not end up paying for empty seats

    You can still bring wine & light snacks

HOWEVER

  •     The class will be open to the public, so there may be other people in the class
  •  
  •     If you don’t all book at the same time, the class may sell out.

OPTION #2: Book the entire space for a PRIVATE EVENT.

  •     Guaranteed all seats on the day/time that you want
  •  

HOWEVER

  •     You will pay for all seats whether people show up to fill them or not.
  •  
  •     You will pay a deposit to reserve the room, and will be charged the remainder + tax on the day of the event.

Can my group do a FUNDRAISER workshop?

We would LOVE to help you raise money for a worthy cause!  

Basically, you fill out an application letting us know the details of your charity. We regret that since we are a small start-up, we will only be able to work with charitable organizations that fit within our stated mission of directly supporting Women and Children in our local community.  

One of our staff members will reach out and discuss potential dates if you are a candidate that falls within our parameters. Once a date is chosen, it is the responsibility of the charity to advertise and spread the word about the event. We will support the effort in our social media if we can. INDIEHOUSE modern fragrance bar will donate 20% of proceeds from the workshop and 10% of retail purchases that are made during the event by workshop attendees.

What ingredients are used in the workshops?

Real perfume ingredients are used in our workshops. We use a selection of natural, synthetic and perfume accords from reputable fragrance manufacturers ensuring a trade-grade quality.

We aim to provide a safe and controlled environment to participants when manipulating perfumery ingredients. Guests are offered goggles, gloves and aprons for their use, if they so choose. Before participating to a workshop, we ask participants to read and agree to our safety terms and conditions.

Safety Guidelines

We only use high quality perfume ingredients that are used and approved by the fragrance trade and sourced from leading fragrance and ingredients manufacturers.

To create fragrances during the workshops, we use a selection of natural ingredients, synthetic perfumery ingredients and perfume bases.

We work with concentrations of ingredients that limit any potential risk of toxicity, and that could be allergens. However our workshops involve the use of diluted perfumery ingredients and those with allergies and sensitivities are advised to take this into consideration.

Participants of workshops acknowledge that the formula of their fragrance, resulting from a combination of individual perfumery ingredients they chose, will not be certified by a qualified laboratory. Therefore, participants acknowledge that it may contain a combination of ingredients that exceeds the recommended levels from IFRA (International Fragrance Association).

Guests also acknowledge that they may be in contact with fragrance substances that present allergen potential. If you have any known allergy to fragrance ingredients, let us know before signing up or seek advice from a medical doctor before you participate in a workshop.

  • Gloves and goggles can be provided during any session
  •  
  • We recommend testing your fragrance on a small area of your skin before regular use
  •  
  • All fragrances made during the workshops are Eau de Parfum. They contain alcohol and are flammable. They should not be used near fire, flame or heat. They should not be swallowed and are for external use only.
  •  

Because alcohol is used in our products, there is ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING/VAPING/JUULING ANYWHERE on our property, inside or out.

Terms & Conditions

By booking any of our workshops you agree to abide by the following terms and conditions:

 

CANCELLATIONS & RESCHEDULING

Individual Workshops – If the cancellation occurs with more than 7 days in advance of the workshop date, we will reschedule your booking to an alternative date. If you need to cancel within 7 days of your scheduled date we will be unable to reschedule your booking. You may always send a friend in your place if you are unable to attend.

FOR COVID 19: Cancellations are accepted up to 48 hours prior to the start time of the event with no penalty. Please note we cannot refund the credit card processing fees and those will be deducted from any refund. Cancellations made after this deadline will be given store credit.

Bridal & Private Event Workshops - Deposits are non-refundable. We will need to have a firm confirmation 14 days in advance of your reserved date. We do have a bit more flexibility if your event was scheduled for a Tuesday-Thursday time slot, but when we take prime times out of inventory we cannot offer to reschedule as we are not guaranteed that we can re-book those spots. If your plans change before the 14 days out mark, please contact us directly to discuss options.

Cancellations by INDIEHOUSE modern fragrance bar – Should we need to cancel a workshop due to unforeseen circumstances, we will aim to give you as much notice as possible and re-book to an alternative date. Unfortunately we cannot offer refunds in these situations.

 

REFUNDS AND EXCHANGES

Gift certificates, open lab bookings, and workshop bookings are non-refundable and are not permitted to be exchanged for other products.

If we are unable to accept your order (i.e the minimum number of attendees not being reached), we will offer a refund or the option to reschedule you into the next available workshop.

 

Refunds are otherwise only accepted if an incorrect workshop date is purchased online by the consumer within 24 hours of the purchase. Please contact us directly so that we can assist in moving you into the desired date/time.

 

GIFT CERTIFICATES

Gift certificates for group workshops are valid for 12 months from date of purchase. All certificates are non refundable. Bookings should be made at least 30 days before the end of the validity period. Vouchers cannot be redeemed outside the validity period and will be lost.

 

PRICING

Workshop prices may change over time and occasionally we offer special classes that cost more. A receipt will be emailed to you following your purchase, confirming your booking. If the issuer of your payment card refuses or does not authorize payment, we will not be liable if your first choice class time sells out due to this inconvenience.

 

TARDINESS

We pack our workshops full of fun and interesting information - you won't want to miss a minute! Please make every effort to arrive to the event location 15 minutes prior to class time. If you are late, please check in with a Perfumist and be aware that the workshop may have already started. You will only be permitted to join the class once you have signed all required paperwork. Refunds and partial-refunds are not provided in this instance. Parking in our busy downtown location can be a challenge during peak times, so please plan accordingly that you may experience a 10-15 minute walk from a spot further away.

AGE REQUIREMENTS

Workshops are suitable for those ages 16+ (or ages 13+ if accompanied by a paying adult). While we are certain that your 10 year old is indeed very responsible and capable, the class covers industry information and makes historical references that would not be enjoyable for younger kids.

You will have access to aprons, gloves and safety glasses. A majority of the fragrances created in our workshops contain alcohol and are flammable. They should not be used near fire, flame or heat. They should not be swallowed and are for external use only.
