What you'll learn in this perfumery class:

In this sensory workshop we will examine the science, history, and art of perfumery. Perfume ingredients and formulation will be explored, and each participant will leave with two bottles of their own bespoke perfume made with natural ingredients.

Smell is the most neglected of our senses, yet it has the power to instantaneously penetrate our consciousness, evoking memories and emotion and able to attract or repel. No prior knowledge of perfume making is required.

Note: Students should bring a notebook to class; all other materials will be provided.

Perfumery is something I would love to pursue and would love to take this class. The age requirement is 18+ yet I'm only 17. This is extremely crucial for myself and my future so would I still be able to join? Thank you

If you have some knowledge of essential oils and aromatherapy, you will learn about some new oils and absolutes. The highlight of the experience for me was the formulation - building the perfume, seeing how different oils interacted, and understanding the depth and thoughtfulness that goes into formulation. I was concerned that we might not have enough time to formulate, but the class was organized in a way that there was enough time for everything. I appreciated the emphasis on learning, rather than perfecting. Very good class. Formulation experience and Julianne's knowledge of the oils we used was excellent. The historical information and learning about Julianne's background was very good.

Teacher was lovely and knowledgeable and I enjoyed the lecture portortion of the class. However, would like to have had more structure and guidance regarding blending. We were a large class and I found sharing scent strips with everyone in the class very frustrating. I would have rated this class four stars had we each had our own set of scent blotters with which to compare essences before composing. I realize this may make the class a bit more expensive, but it would be worth it.
