MORE ABOUT YOUR HOST

Mr Neenan retired from professional dance in 1985 to start a career creating scents. As an assistant to Master Perfumer Sam Simpson, he learned classical technique of fragrance blending with a discipline gained from years studying ballet. The opportunity to open Tedd's own perfumery in Chicago presented itself in 1993. Since then Aroma Workshop has helped legions of Chicagoans find their own Signature Scents.

Mr. Neenan is a Certified Aromatherapist essential oils being his second love.

    This wasn't a class. It's a store. When I walked in and said I'm here for the Dabble class, the girls behind the counter had no idea what I was talking about. And yes, Ted is the owner. But when he came out, he was unclear about what class--aromatherapy? Um, no. I did leave with a custom perfume, but Ted didn't really share about the perfume-making process, which I expected more of. I had to pull information out of him. How did you get into this? How do you create the scents? How do you think about creating the scents. This is how you do it: You pick 8-10 scents from 4 categories and then he (or the girls, if that's who was helping you) puts drops on strips of paper and you smell them. Ted was not good about giving instruction (smell all of these and tell me which ones you like). He just handed me strips to smell; he didn't say "smell all the strips and think about which ones you like the best & tell me why." Then he'd look at me after waiting and say, "have you decided yet?" He is so accustomed to the process, he didn't bother communicating clearly. The girls sent people away from all the smells (go outside) to smell their final strips. Ted didn't. In fact, a friend came in and he left me (without instruction) to hug her and show her new things in the store, and talk about his recent vacation.This wasn't a class; its a store. He didn't provide anything beyond what the store already provides. Don't bother. If you're interested, just go to the store. Which was fine; if you're not looking for a workshop/class and meeting other interested people.
