Art of Botanical Perfume Live Class
In the ART OF BOTANICAL PERFUME 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 while delving into modalities of blending with a focus on your own 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 create their very own custom perfume.
These are the 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
By the end of this class you will have a foundation to create unique botanical perfumes and a template to continue building your skill set.
