Basic Natural Perfumery
This class will introduce you to vital concepts involved in creating a perfume from natural ingredients, such as absolutes and essential oils, from an aesthetic perspective. We’ll discuss the classification of natural ingredients, perfume composition, and considerations for blending. You’ll create a perfume of your own, and receive information and resources to help you work with an expanded palette of materials independently.
