Perfume making courses
The Natural perfumery seminar of 2018 is in January, from 8th to 13th in Coriano, Italy.
There will be 6 days of daily classes and blending exercises to teach 10 students both my philosophy of perfumery and the method of composing fragrances.
The classes will cover a range of issues. One key point will be natural raw materials, including animal scents and rare essences, several of which can be smelled only with me. I will educate the nose to understand and evaluate the quality of natural raw materials. “Your perfume will be only as good as your ingredients are”.
Every day, we shall have blending exercises using different methods and approaches. I will teach students how to blend custom fragrances for private clients, companies or friends. The perfumes composed daily during the workshop will be bottled and kept by the students. They can be as much as 20 beautiful bottles of 30 ml.
I will also explain in workshops how to approach concept blending, custom perfumes at distance and custom perfumes for companies. In addition, I will discuss where to source the best essences, so that those who have learned how to make perfumes with me can carry on as independent perfumers.
Other topics will include perfume descriptive language, olfactory psychology, philosophy and the ethics of natural perfumery. These are fundamentally important because our nose is only secondary to the brain in making perfumes, which is before all a mental attitude.
The students will quickly learn how to make perfumes with different approaches, in the same way as you learn how to swim different styles, until to their own surprise composing perfumes becomes as natural to them as swimming, but the most important teaching for their future will be the 7 points of the “Way of Scent”, a training method that will allow them to continue and progress after the course.
Each class is limited to 10 students
The perfume course is in English
