Organising workshops and walks around perfume

Sophie, founder of Ren­dez-Vous Par­fum, offers sen­so­ry work­shops and walks so that par­tic­i­pants can redis­cov­er their sense of smell and the plea­sures of per­fume. As wit­ness­es to her suc­cess, we inter­viewed her about organ­is­ing these events and how she uses Weezevent

Hi Sophie! First of all, can you tell us about what led you to create Rendez-vous Parfum?

I worked in the per­fume indus­try for sev­er­al years and I absolute­ly loved it — the fun side of smelling, the pow­er of our sen­so­ry mem­o­ry, the emo­tions we feel, the place of per­fume in our soci­ety and in the his­to­ry of French lux­u­ry. I start­ed this busi­ness in 2017 as an invi­ta­tion to who­ev­er want­ed to know more about this mag­i­cal and mys­te­ri­ous world — we are all quite hap­py to wear per­fume but few peo­ple know how it is made, how to choose one or even how we can sharp­en our sense of smell.

What are the formats you offer your participants?

Activ­i­ties fol­low var­i­ous for­mats: sen­so­ry walks in Paris or mul­ti-sen­so­ry work­shops. The walks are often booked by for­eign tourists who don’t know where to find French-style per­fumes out­side of the main­stream brands but I also offer a walk for Parisians where I talk about the his­to­ry and soci­ol­o­gy of per­fume. Mul­ti-sen­so­ry work­shops, for their part, are almost exclu­sive­ly booked by com­pa­nies look­ing for unique and sophis­ti­cat­ed activ­i­ties for their cor­po­rate events. For these events, I usu­al­ly work with wine experts or musi­cians to cre­ate true sen­so­ry expe­ri­ences.

Why did you choose Weezevent to manage your bookings?

Sim­plic­i­ty. It’s very easy! For instance, I need to offer sev­er­al dates for the same activ­i­ty and Weezevent is the most suit­able solu­tion allow­ing me to do that. The price is also very attrac­tive. I love your con­cept! Thanks to you, I can also man­age invoic­ing by myself. That makes a huge dif­fer­ence! If you hadn’t been there, it would have been a lot more com­pli­cat­ed, or more expen­sive. For me, there is no com­par­i­son, Weezevent real­ly is the best solu­tion.

What is a feature that you can’t live without?

The fea­ture I found best suit­ed to my busi­ness is the ses­sions mode for the same day and muti-days. I only need to cre­ate the event once. That made a big dif­fer­ence for me! Before that, it took me so long to do it. Then I just set quo­tas per date. It’s very flex­i­ble. It’s great!

Any last words for our readers?

I will add new dates for my events soon, so any­one who wants to find out more can go to rendezvousparfum.fr to book a walk in Paris and redis­cov­er their sense of smell.

Thanks Sophie!
