Art of Botanical Perfume Two Day Workshop and Online Course
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. This version of the live class also includes the comprehensive online course by the same name. Read about the online course here.
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.
TIME: 10am – 5pm. We begin promptly and will have approximately an hour lunch break where students can grab a bite together.

The online course helps to deepen this workshop by adding the Art of Botanical Perfume online course and kit at a discounted rate. This is a great opportunity to experience the full spectrum of the course material and live in class workshop. I suggest starting the online course before attending the live class to get the most benefit.
