Five-Day Natural Perfume Intensive

"Pyramid of Olfactory Pleasure"

October 17-21, 2011
9:30 am - 5 pm each day
30 hours of training

Pre-requisite: This course would best suit someone with a firm foundation in Natural Perfumery. You should have a good grasp of the basics of perfume creation: how to formulate, create accords, and tinctures; note classification; perfumery terms; methods of extraction; shelf-life and storage; scent profiling; working in a safe atelier; where to purchase supplies; and so on.

Join us for a week of fun during this hands-on experiential event as we create five perfumes and gather a wealth of knowledge for you to take home.

This course expands on some of the concepts presented in the Coeur d'Esprit Natural Perfume Course, "A Path to the Heart of Spirit", I'm currently teaching through correspondence, as well as offers several new topics to explore and a new base of information from which to create.

Each day we will begin the creation of one perfume from five fragrance families (it will need to mature under your nurture for several months before you can use it): Chypre, Citrus, Fougere, Floral, and Oriental.

We will create deviations into compositions featuring Woodsy, Herbaceous, Leathery, Soliflore, and Gourmand/Fruity.

We will be working solely with Perfumers’ Alcohol making Pure Perfume Extraits only.

Some of our topics, lectures, and experiments include:
o Creating various kinds of alcohol for specific Perfume Families
o Exotic Accords from my personal work – leather, hyacinth, stargazer lily, violet, oceanic, amber, lily of the valley, and others
o Working with the Natural Perfume Pyramid
o Advanced sniffing and evaluation techniques
o How to do a Perfume Consultation
o Sharing and smelling Natural Isolates

You will also have the opportunity to experience some of the rarest perfume components in use today. ie: Hyacinth, Narcissus, Ambergris, and Ambrette Seed and many others; all in 20% dilution ready to smell.

Workshop includes all products used in class, supplies, a detailed manual, and a Certificate of Completion during the Graduation Ceremony & Celebration on Friday evening after our cold buffet meal (spouses and significant others are welcome).

Due to the size of my teaching room, this event is open to the first eight people who Register and make their deposit. Since this is the case, I sweetly ask you to please be fair to others by ensuring it is your full intention to come and taking the appropriate action steps to accomplish that task. Thank you.
