Event description

Description

We are pleased to welcome Jessica Hannah of J. Hannah Co. back to the IAO for her fourth naturals-only perfume blending intensive.

Get the inside scoop on creating natural perfumes at this hands-on, two-day perfumery workshop, where you will learn the art of formulating with natural essences and discover best practices to utilize when blending.

Led by Bay Area-based natural perfumer Jessica Hannah, we’ll spend the weekend smelling the materials, creating formulas, and discussing classical and contemporary perfume structures, plant origins, and the historical context of materials. Students will learn by blending and re-blending formulas, while increasing crucial vocabulary, concepts and olfactory recognition.

Through friendly and focussed group critique, we will discuss where a blend is successfully achieving the student’s intentions (and where adjustments can be made to the formula).

ABOUT JESSICA HANNAH + J. HANNAH CO

J.Hannah Co. fragrances are crafted in small batches and are hand bottled in Jessica Hannah’s studio in San Francisco, CA. Jessica is committed to blending bespoke perfumes and leading hands-on workshops using only the finest natural materials. A perfectionist at heart, Jessica spends hours researching and blending materials to create unique fragrances. Her practice has been greatly influenced by her studies of natural aromatic history and aromatherapy, as well as the sensory arts.

CANCELLATION POLICY

When we host a class or workshop, we often order the materials to be used in the class well in advance, based on how many people have signed up (and padding a bit for safety).

Although we realize that life has a funny way of getting in the way of the best laid plans, as a small non-profit we cannot afford to carry the burden of wasted materials.

With that in mind, here is our refund policy:

– Cancellation with refund request made 2 weeks or more (14 days) before the scheduled class will be honored with gusto! We’ll miss you, but will 100% refund your spot.
– Refunds requested less than 14 days before the scheduled class: We will refund you 50% of your class fee. Why? Because we’ve already ordered the materials.
– Refunds requested less than 48 hours before the class, on the day of the class or after the class has happened will not be granted.

+ Please review our cancellation policy on our website.
