“ Your method for creating accords gave me a bunch of confidence

While going through the first module and listening in this group, one thing that has happened immediately is the fog of mystery that surrounds this industry is being blown away. This is a big deal because even though I’ve been selling fragrances that I’ve purchased from others for years now, it hasn’t crossed my mind until recently that I can create them for myself. It’s interesting what a change in thinking can lead to. And I think that the act of peeling back the curtain on how fragrances are crafted and brands are made will lead to an explosion of artistic and creative expressions. Your method for creating accords gave me a bunch of confidence to start playing around with the other materials, even the ones I didn’t think would blend together well and others I wasn’t even sure what to do with.

“Anytime I run into a roadblock, I know Karen and the Facebook group can help answer questions

When I started the course in 2017, I knew borderline nothing about fragrance, other than the fact that I was hugely interested by it. I learned a lot about botanical ingredients during the course, since that’s the starting point of getting familiar with aroma chemicals. It was a great jumping off point as I slowly began to expand my knowledge of and experimentation with more manmade ingredients. I launched my first scent in late 2018 and am continuing to expand the product line as I learn more about what my clients do (and don’t) like. Anytime I run into a roadblock, I know Karen and the Facebook group can help answer questions. When you’re an entrepreneur just getting started on this journey, it’s really great to know that you’re not alone and can get help along the way…the course itself really proved to just be the start of what’s been a hugely useful resource.”

“Karen has a knack of putting the complexities of perfumery into plain English

The big plusses about Karen’s course are that you are able to beam into not only the course material forever as it’s evergreen to you once you’ve purchased, but also that you get access to her Facebook live Q&A sessions. The lives were invaluable in getting my specific questions answered. Even if I thought I knew the topic up for discussion that month/module, I would always pick up tips and gems of advice from other folks’ questions too. Karen has a knack of putting the complexities of perfumery into plain English and debunking the myth that perfumery is a high art that only the rare few can do. I can honestly say that without having her patience and support and the constant support online through her course Facebook group, I wouldn’t have got near to my dream of my own brand. Having access to Karen and her world can give you the roadmap to succeed in your personal perfumery goals.”
