Four Hour Accords: Lilac
Sat, May 20, 2017, 10:30 AM – 3:30 PM PDT
Join independent perfumer and frequent IAO collaborator Ashley Eden Kessler as she leads us through the components of a lilac perfume accord in a four hour accord-building class.
For perfumers looking to expand their technical prowess, Ashley Eden Kessler shares her professional training as she leads students through classic accord structures. We will be continuing our journey through the pantheon of materials with an exploration of the sweet and juicy lilac accord.
By attending this class, an emerging perfumer will expand their capabilities and training, and gain the materials knowledge to add the classic accord staples to their arsenal.
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 a violet flower. Then, as a class, we will blend sample accords, learn how to evaluate our formulas, and then spend some hands-on 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.
LONG DISTANCE ONLY
We offer a long-distance learning module. Once the class is over, we will send a series of formulas, a list of materials (and suppliers) and a set of worksheets, via email.
When we host a class or workshop, we often order the materials to be used in the class well in advance. With that in mind, here is our refund and cancellation policy:
– Cancellation and refunds requested more than 2 weeks before the class: No problem! We’ll miss you, but will 100% refund your spot.
– Cancellation and refunds requested less than 2 weeks before the scheduled class: We refund you 50%. Why? Because we already ordered the materials.
– Cancellation and refunds requested on the day of the class or after the class has happened will not be granted.
