In the ART OF BOTANICAL PERFUME two day workshop we explore how this ancient craft holds the seeds of Alchemy, Herbalism, Aromatherapy and the Arts—while still serving the Earth and positively affecting change in the human being.
We experience and use materials from the palette of an authentic botanical perfumer, all plant based, while delving into modalities of blending with a focus on artistic impressions and expression. Each student will leave the class with a deeper awareness of scent, understand the key components to building a fragrance and their very own custom perfume in two formats.
Seven sections covered:
- 1. What is Perfume?
- 2. History of Perfume
- 3. Tools & Raw Materials
- 4. Fragrance Families & Types
- 5. Olfactory Awareness
- 6. Artistry
- 7. Orchestration
DAY ONE: We begin the two day workshop with an introduction to perfume and its rich history while we explore olfactory awareness with our palette of essences.
DAY TWO: On day two we continue to explore olfactory awareness interspersed with learning about fragrance families & types & artistry. We then begin to construct our blends for a solid and liquid perfume.
DATES: Choose the date from the pull down menu.
