Information
Over Winter there’s always a huge amount of work going on behind the scenes here at Keyneston Mill. This tour, led by a member of our team, is an opportunity to see some of that seasonal activity and get an insight into what makes Keyneston Mill and Parterre Fragrances so unique.

You’ll see how we go about creating oils for perfume from seed to bottle and discover some of the experimental plants we grow, harvest and distil to make our perfumes – with behind the scenes glimpses of the work underway in the open lab, distillery, polytunnels and the gardens (weather permitting). You’ll also get to smell some of our precious oils!

Every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 11:30am.
