Event description
Have you always wanted to understand perfume, without ever really knowing what it is, where to start, and how to learn? We're here to help!

About this Event

Our recurring online Perfume 101 class serves as an orientation session for newcomers to the field, olfactive adventurers, curious minds, and budding scent enthusiasts who need a little boost.

In this theory-focused introduction to perfumery, participants will learn the about perfume basics such as fragrance families and classifications, get an introduction to perfume-making in a lab, and get an introduction to the different kinds of aromatic materials. As a group, the class will learn the difference between top, middle and bottom notes, what's in a perfume lab, get a brief introduction to perfume math concepts, and more.

Participants will leave with the basic knowledge they need to start a journey down the rabbit hole of appreciating and even making scent, as well as a more considered understanding of what they encounter at the fragrance counter.

Topics covered:

+ Introduction to scent literacy (fragrance families, top middle and base notes)

+ Introduction to aromatic molecules (natural and synthetic)

+ Introduction to perfume lab and math

Take-Aways:

Participants will leave with the basic knowledge they need to start a journey down the rabbit hole of understanding scent. Participants will also receive an introduction to perfumery document to readalong during the video, and keep as an overview of perfumery concepts.
