ABOUT MELANIE JANE
HELLO, I’M MELANIE JANE AND WELCOME TO MY FRAGRANT WORLD!
From the daffodil fields of Northern England to the lavender fields of Southern France (and many fragrance-filled stops along the way), I am a lifelong scent enthusiast.
From creating scents for Carlsberg to teaching perfumery courses at the Burj Al Arab, I believe I have mastered the combination of scent creation and engaging hands-on education.
I invite people like you to experience my masterclasses, either live or online, a medium through which I can now share my passion for fragrance and natural skincare on a global scale.
More than 20 years ago I earned a Diploma as a Holistic Therapist (1998) and a Diploma in Beauty (1999) from the Federation of Holistic Therapists in the UK.
Subsequently, I built my own client base and created bespoke blends for private clients as a freelance professional in aroma and beauty treatments.
In 2011, I created and formulated my own line of Feel-Good Fragrances, Aromatherapy Remedies and Organic Skincare under the trade name NightingOils
I sold my fragrance and skincare line in the local market and online, receiving critical acclaim from my faithful and growing customer base.
After meeting Jo Malone in March 2016, I was inspired to rebrand and concentrate solely on Feel Good Fragrances and changed the brand name to ‘By Melanie Jane.’
As a result of this decision, I furthered my studies at the Grasse Institute of Perfumery, an institution where some of the world’s best ‘Noses’ have studied.
Over the years I have recognized a growing trend in my clients’ desire to control the all-natural ingredients in their products. They expressed a growing interest in the creative process and the desire to invent their own scents.
With a shortage of qualified teachers to show them the art, I decided to correctly, safely and effectively teach them.
The first Aromatherapy workshop was a great success. I then went on to teach NATURAL PERFUMERY and ORGANIC SKINCARE
The courses continued in various locations such as the Burl Al Arab, Ritz-Carlton and Versace Hotel in Dubai. Students would fly in from all over the world, either as individuals or as private groups.
I have my own ‘FEEL-GOOD’ fragrance range in addition to perfume making kits, online courses and live workshops in the south of France.
I was thrilled to be approached recently, by the global German brand Carlsberg, who commission me to create a fragrance for the launch of Kronenbourg 1664 in the UAE.
My Private Label perfumes, for other brands have been featured on billboards in New York Times Square and Sloane Street in London.
