During this open studio, attendees will gain fundamental knowledge about the process of extracting essential oils and identifying the diversity of a single-note fragrance using various extraction methods. It provides a perfect opportunity for fragrance enthusiasts, culinary/beverage professionals, or young researchers in biochemistry to learn more about aromas not only through scent differentiation but also through Botanical Art illustrations of plant groups and insights from botanist-artist Phan Thi Thanh Nha.

The open studio would not be possible without the enthusiastic support from Notessen, a research partner of Lan Tinh Foundation, and Lan Tinh Fellow Phan Thi Thanh Nha.
