Natural Perfumery Workshop

We will together smell the 33 essences on a blotter paper and discuss the scent classification and attributes of each essence.

We will discuss top, middle, base notes and define what each essence is. We will learn how long each note will last in a perfume. We will discuss strengths of eau de toilettes, eau de parfums, and parfums.

We will build accords, discuss blending a scent for a purpose or a themed essence, etc. We will discuss creating the scent drop by drop and the bases that can be used.

There will be question and answers throughout the process.

Includes Scent Classification sheet, Oil Classification Guide, and Fragrance Family Classification sheet. You will take home a 1/8 oz - 3.75 mls of perfume that you create in class.  This is a 3 hour class.
