Option 1: FRAGRANCE DAY – Scented Garden Tour, Two-Course Lunch and Introduction to Perfume Experience

Join us for a day of fragrance starting with welcome drinks, an introductory talk from the owners of Parterre Fragrances and a short tour of the gardens (weather permitting). This will be followed by a delicious two-course lunch with a botanical twist, in The Scented Botanist Bistro.

In the afternoon, enjoy a one-hour light hearted Introduction to Perfume where you will learn how perfumes are made and how plants are turned into high quality fragrance ingredients, and discover some fascinating stories behind some of the world’s most iconic brands. There will be plenty of sniffing along the way of ingredients, oils – and of course perfumes.

Option 2: DINÉCINÉ – Two-Course Dinner and Cinema Experience

An evening to savour, starting with a Cocktail Reception and an introductory talk from the owners of Parterre Fragrances followed by a two-course themed dinner inspired by your choice of movie. You will then settle down to enjoy a special private film screening in the gardens, or in the cosy Aromadome, with licensed bar, snacks and hot drinks available. We offer films from classics to quirky, mainstream to independent – please ask for details.

Option 3: PRIVATE HIRE – Lunch, Dinner or Cocktail & Canape Reception

Celebrate a special event or corporate success with a lunch or dinner in our Aromadome or The Scented Botanist Bistro. Both venues can be booked for private hire for those wishing to enjoy a delicious two or three- course meal or cocktail & canape reception. One of our Perfume Experiences or a Scented Garden Tour can be incorporated on request.


We can also cater for weddings receptions of up to 30 guests.

We have wide open spaces within the estate for you to enjoy and our venues take full account of social distancing measures.
