The Aroma Cafe is part of The Perfume Studio in Mellon Charles. 85% + of our menu is made-up of locally sourced Scottish produce and our baking is all done in-house. The Cafe adjoins the Perfume Studio, a 5* Visit Scotland attraction, where we make, on site, soaps, body washes, cremes and perfumes. We also have a gift shop and a photography studio, the Image Studio, where professional residential photography workshops take place during the winter months.
