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 I am a lifelong scent enthusiast.
I invite fabulous people like you to experience my unique teachings online, where I can share my passion for fragrance, aromatherapy, and natural skincare creation.

From creating scents for Carlsberg to teaching perfumery at the Burj Al Arab, I believe I have mastered the combination of creation and engaging hands-on education.


THE BEGINNING
After suffering from depression I became interested in the power of aromatherapy and wanted to delve deeper into this ancient art, so in 1997 I began studying full time at a college in the UK and earned a Diploma as a Holistic Therapist (1998) and a Diploma in Beauty (1999) both from the Federation of Holistic Therapists in the UK. Subsequently, I built my own client base and created bespoke essential oil blends for private clients as a freelance professional in aroma and beauty treatments.


FAST FORWARD TO DUBAI AND 2011, where a twist of fate led me to follow my dreams and I launched my own brand where I designed and formulated my own natural range of Feel-Good Fragrances, Aromatherapy Remedies and Organic Skincare .

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.

A CHANCE ENCOUNTER WITH A FRAGRANCE FAIRY made me realise that I had a gift and passion for teaching, so I pursued a path that would lead me to host masterclasses at iconic venues like the Burj Al Arab, Ritz-Carlton and Versace Hotel. Something I never dreamed would happen when I started as a youngster!

IN 2019 CARLSBERG COMMISSIONED ME to create a fragrance for the launch of their beer Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc. I was later approached by Martini to do the same for them and just before I left Dubai I worked with Toyota, to host a perfume making activation for the launch of their 2020 Supra.


I have created private label perfumes that have featured on billboards in Times Square NYC and Sloane street in London.

I now spend my time between France and the UAE where I dedicate my time to teaching and consulting for private label perfumes.
