NATURAL PERFUMERY - AN INDIVIDUAL CLASS IMMERSION

A four day one-on-one hands-on natural perfumery immersion with Persephenie. You will learn the basic principles of perfumery incorporating a wide range of essential oils and some herbs. We will explore extraction methods, odor classification, ratio’s, tools, challenges, and advantages of natural perfumery.

 DAY 1 & 2 - MATERIALS

A master natural perfumer formulates well because they understand structure, they trust their intuition, and they’re familiar with the nature of their materials.  On day one and two, the focus is on oils and herbs, learning where they come from, their therapeutic power, extraction methods, safety, and how to prepare them. It’s an exploration of materials through smelling, touching, processing, blending, and intuition. Exercises include vocabulary of odor, scent comparison’s, dilutions, chord building, macerations, classification, and more.
