Event description

About this Event

In the latest of her accords classes, Ashley leads a thorough study of the sandalwood accord. This online session will focus on helping students understand the molecular components of the various facets and types of the material, leading to a greater adeptness at blending, and well-trained noses.

By attending this class, an emerging perfumer or scent artist will expand their capabilities and training, gain the materials knowledge to add sandalwood accords to their arsenal, and leave with a deeper understanding of the artistry and science behind perfumery.

Please note that this class is recommended to be taken in combination with Dana El Masri's Genealogy of Scent: Woods Part 1 on December 1st and Woods Part 2 on December 14th.

Materials Needed: We will send you a materials list upon signup. Please purchase these materials before attending class. Before class, we will send you formulation exercises, which must be accomplished before the class meets.

Takeaways:

  • Technical knowledge about the molecular components of the studied material
  • A greater familiarity with aromatic components and combinations
  • The capacity to reconstruct the material through its components

This is an online class. The Zoom link will be sent by email 24 hours before the class.

To allow time for materials shipping, registration for class tickets closes on November 27th.

ABOUT ASHLEY EDEN KESSLER

A Los Angeles native, Ashley came to perfumery after forays into other creative disciplines. Sculpture, Architecture, Theater, Film and Design were the initial steps on her search for a mode of expression that would support both a dreamer and a pragmatist, a creative mind fascinated equally by science and by art. Perfumery, the science of the ineffable, is where the road finally took her.

Her first introduction to scent was by way of a gift on her 16th birthday: a bespoke fragrance formulated by renowned perfumer Sarah Horowitz. The study of architecture and design led to travel and work in film art departments, but ultimately it was to Sarah Horowitz Parfums she returned. From apprentice to Junior Perfumer at SHP, she was smitten with the field. Dropping everything else, she immersed herself in study and practice.

Her education in niche perfumery continued at LA’s Lucky Scent, and seeking a more formal education in the field, she moved to France to study at the prestigious Grasse Institute of Perfumery. There, she distinguished herself with her final brief- winning one of GIP’s coveted awards. After her studies, she returned to the U.S., having accepted a position as a Perfumer’s Assistant at Drom Fragrances International, one of the world’s top fine fragrance studios. After two years in that position, she was offered the chance to move back to Los Angeles as consultant for Sarah Horowitz’ new business initiative, Original Scent. In 2013, Ashley joined the Institute for Art and Olfaction as an instructor, and in 2015 she founded her perfume company, Sentir Studio.
