The art of natural perfumery is steeped in the history and exquisite beauty of botanical materials. Join Aftel trained perfumer, Jessica Mennella, for this beginner perfume making class where you will explore 18 perfumer’s botanicals whose complexity in scent is linked directly to the flowers from which they are derived. In addition to exploring these materials, the class will cover the basic structure of a natural perfume, how to create a balanced formula, and some basic blending techniques. Participants will develop their own personal formula in a guided mixing session, and will go home with a perfume made from the formula created in class, as well as a guide to the process of making natural perfumes. All materials provided. No prior experience necessary, and past participants are welcome again!
