Chord Construction & Perfume Types of Botanical Perfume

$395.00 $425.00

This two day workshop is for those who have taken the ART OF BOTANICAL PERFUME class live or online

DAY ONE : Chord Building

A chord or accord in perfume is a term borrowed from music referring to constructing a synergy of notes that will be added to your perfume to create more complexity. 

In the first day of our workshop you will learn to construct notes and essences to create chords associated with eight fragrance families, how they relate to each other and how to deepen your blend.

These are the eight fragrance families we will focus on:

  • Green
  • Floral
  • Earth
  • Wood
  • Spice
  • Gourmand
  • Citrus
  • Fruit

By the end of the day you will have created a few chords that will be used on Day Two when we construct a perfume within a specific class.

DAY TWO : Perfume Types

Perfumes are categorized into categories or types, which are also referred to as classes. This organizational system is based on the overall, universal scent impression.

We will learn about these types, the notes that go into their formulation and construct one or more, depending on our time.

  • Chypre
  • Oriental
  • Fougère (meaning fern in French)
  • Floral
  • Green
  • Leather

All supplies & tools are included with the purchase of this class. Please bring a notebook for jotting down your formulas.

By the end of the each day you will have gained new insights to add complexity to your botanical perfume formulas and knowledge to continue working with new skill sets.
