Event description

Description

Join independent perfumer and frequent IAO collaborator Ashley Eden Kessler as she leads us through the Shalimar Fragrance Type, 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. We will be continuing our journey through the pantheon of materials with an exploration of the "oriental" fragrance family, as typified by "Shalimar" by Guerlain.

By attending this class, an emerging perfumer will expand their capabilities and training, and gain the materials knowledge to add this fragrance accord type 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 Shalimar-type perfumes. Then, as a class, we will dive into a deconstruction/DNA analysis of the Shalimar formula, covering the materials, facets and proportions of this classic scent. The group will then experiment with the building blocks, and look at a complete final formula. 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 ten people.

– 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.
