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.
There are many rich materials to explore in the Floral family, from jasmine, tuberose, mimosa and osmanthus absolutes to Hedione (a key ingredient of Eau Sauvage) and linalool (a component found in hundreds of essential oils e.g. bergamot, lavender).
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!
Also, have a look at the Resources link where you'll find suggested reading and other useful bits and bobs.
