Event description

Description

The IAO presents the a special four-week session materials course, exploring the most important aromatic materials in perfumery -- led by independent perfumer and educator Ashley Eden Kessler.

-

ABOUT OUR FOUR WEEK SUMMER SESSION

In each session, held at the IAO’s spacious studio in Chinatown, Ashley will lead the class in smelling and discussing 6 crucial perfume materials – both naturals and synthetics. Over four weeks, we will systematically go through the materials organ, focussing on one category each week. We will explore the function, aesthetics and technicalities of each material and its fragrance family.

Participants will leave with a fluency in the most important molecules of modern perfumery, as well as take-home vials of each material covered in that week’s class, for a total of 6 vials of materials per session.

For beginners, this class presents an indispensable first step in practicing perfumery and growing your familiarity with the materials of perfumery. For more experienced perfumers, the class presents an opportunity to enrich your process and technical abilities.
