Perfumery Classes In London

I have a brand new date for my one day beginners perfumery workshop in London.

An Introduction to Perfumery

beginners perfume course london

The 1 day Natural Perfumery class takes place in the beautiful scent salon at les senteurs in London so not only will you be using high quality natural materials to make your own perfume, you will have lots of niche fragrances to smell for inspiration.

The day will start with learning how to smell properly and training your nose like a professional. This is a really important step before you start creating. I will demystify fragrance families for you and reveal how a fragrance is blended with top middle and base notes.

You will learn how to create accords with a palette of natural materials including precious oils of Rose, Jasmine and Neroli and then blend them into a finished fragrance which you will take away with you in a 30ml atomiser bottle.

Come along with lots of imagination and a refreshed nose as you will be smelling and blending lots!

This class has been attended by men and women from all walks of life from fashion designers to neuroscientists and accountants to beauty business owners. All levels are welcome especially those with no prior fragrance experience – this is a beginners level class but very in depth. You will also take away a set of comprehensive handouts and resources to buy materials should you want to take things further.

Although we will be working with naturals only on the day I will talk a bit about the role of synthetic materials and have some on hand to smell if you wish – so feel free to bring your questions along.

I look forward to seeing you in class!
