ABOUT OUR TEN WEEK SESSIONS
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 ten weeks, we will systematically go through the materials organ category by category, going into 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 per session (and 60 vials for the whole course).
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.
