Self-care is top of mind this season—which is why we gathered at New York City’s MNDFL meditation studio on November 7 for the ultimate dose, and asked you to join in on the relaxation.

The inspiration? The powerful abilities of scent. This season, we’ve explored how it can improve your mood, increase your poise and presence, and purposefully connect you to your surroundings—and the confidence-boosting aromas in Donna Karan Cashmere Aura deliver all the goodness for the total sensory package.

So together, we gathered for an evening of meditation led by MNDFL instructor Kate Johnson, plus a flower-arranging workshop powered by the experts behind Uprooted Flower Truck. The results were nothing short of gorgeous—so scroll down and take a look.

Read on for the inside peek into all the soothing vibes—plus a bunch of rustic-chic bouquets created by Well+Good readers.
