Event description

Description

Join independent perfumer and frequent IAO collaborator Ashley Eden Kessler as she leads us through the accord structure of the Chypre fragrance family, in the latest of her hands-on accord-building classes.

For beginner, intermediate and advanced perfumers looking to expand their technical prowess, Ashley Eden Kessler shares her professional training as she leads students through classic accord structures. This time, we will be delving deep into the historic and contemporary Chypre fragrance family.

In this class we'll explore historical Chypre perfumes and how people interpret it today, using Mitsouko by Guerlain and Liaisons Dangeureuses by Killian as case studies. Over several hours, we'll have a look at the formulation (or DNA) of a classic and contemporary fruity chypre fragrances.

By attending this class, an emerging perfumer will expand their capabilities and training, and gain the materials knowledge to add this important perfume type to their arsenal.


Notes: Recommended (but not required) to take the Peach accord class first, to delve even deeper into understanding

WHAT TO EXPECT

Students will spend several hours as a group training their noses, as Ashley leads a thorough study of the molecular components of Chypre perfumes. Then, as a class, we will blend sample accords, learn how to evaluate our formulas, and then spend some time creating our own formulations. At the end of the day, students will leave with their own best possible formula, as well as a deeper understanding of the artistry and science behind perfumery.

This class is for people at all levels, but some basic understanding of perfumery is recommended. We recommend attending an open session before attending this class.

We will take a one hour lunch break. The class is limited to 12 people.
