Citrus and Woody families


An introduction to the world of perfumery. We start with an overview of the Natural and Synthetic families, learning the classification of materials. We will use the ‘Etude Olfactive des Essences et des Absolues’ created by Jean Carles and the Olfactive Study of Synthetic Products charts.

For this class, we will begin studying the Citrus and Woody families. From Calabrian Bergamot to Bitter and Blood Oranges; from Haitian Vetiver to Indian Sandalwood and Oakmoss, there is much to explore!

The second part of the class will be devoted to blending and you will be able to take home your creations.

No experience is necessary. All you need to bring is a notebook, an open mind, a clear nose and a sense of fun!
