The art of a perfumer is based on olfactive skills and memory, a sound knowledge of raw materials and the effects they create when blended into a composition.
In this intensive workshop we will explore the technical as well as the creative aspects of fragrance creation and olfaction.
We will be spending time working on olfaction techniques, developing and exercising skills in memory and recognition, fragrance family groups and accord creation into creating a complex composition (or a few variations compositions on your theme!).
We will also get to know better some very special ingredients and play a few games in scent recognition.
You will receive a Cult of Scent perfume creation notebook to record your ideas and formulas. An extensive range of raw materials and equipment to create your perfume will be provided. Any fragrances created on the day will also be kept on file so that you can have more made up for you later from the studio.
PLEASE NOTE: The Saturday session will be repeated on Sunday.
Class maximum: 10 people so that you will get a personalised experience.
Location: Rendezvous Hotel, corner of George St & Quay Street, Sydney NSW 2000 Opposite Central Station and Railway Square
