How to Make Perfume Course 

Everything you need to know about formulating perfumes


This fully-comprehensive instructional guide has been carefully compiled using our knowledge and experience of over 20 years.  You will learn about the history of perfume and how it has influenced style and mood from ancient times and still today. You will study natural and synthetic ingredients used in perfume making, their benefits, what they are for and why they are used.  

Delve into the world of beautiful aromatic oils, identify top, middle and base notes and how to structure a perfume.  Identity different aroma-family classifications and perfume compounds. Taking the role of a 'nose' we analyse top brands of perfume to see how they are formulated and what makes them so popular and successful.

You will become skilled at layering and blending techniques and use these to create a variety of stunning, unusual and breathtakingly beautiful scents.
