Mixing fragrances requires a dash of artistry, a splash of imagination, and a healthy dose of mad scientist. Embed this activity in the centuries-old craft of perfumery, and you have more than just a nice-smelling ointment. You have a little piece of creation, made by your own hands.
This course is dedicated to helping others find their own inner perfumist by providing the supplies for practicing the mad science of perfumery as well as education about the craft. Students get an introduction to the science, history, and mythology behind perfumery. In addition to historical information about the field, students gain practical experience mixing three forms of perfume (parfum, oil, and solid), blending instruction, and even advice on how to start a perfume business.
Each week for 6 weeks, you’ll learn via video based lectures, workbooks and reference materials. Each week you’ll also have homework to help solidify what you’re learning. At the end of the course, you’ll have a strong foundation in how to create artisan perfumes and even how to open your own perfume business. You can watch the videos on your own time and complete the course at your own pace. You have lifetime access to the training videos, so you can watch them over and over again.
