Event description

Description

Our popular quarterly perfume-making intensive is back!

Join independent perfumer and IAO collaborator Ashley Eden Kessler for a weekend of deep learning. Explore the wonderful field of perfumery in this highly-detailed technical two day perfume-blending intensive - with a focus on amber and ambergris.

The one an elusive waxy substance secreted from the belly of a sperm whale, the other a golden resin produced by extinct coniferous trees from 63 million years ago; the one an elusive and unreliable perfume material, the other an invented smell.

Both: Highly prized perfume materials.

MORE INFORMATION

Led by Independent Perfumer Ashley Eden Kessler, and held in our fully stocked educational laboratory, this very hands-on session will focus on helping students train their nose, expand their capabilities for blending, and learn all about the natural and synthetic variants of amber + ambergris.

Students will spend the first part of the day training their noses, as Ashley leads a thorough study of the molecular components of class amber and ambergris accords. Then,as a class, we will blend several accord variations, learn how to evaluate our formulas, and spend plenty of hands-on time creating our own formulations.

At the end of the session, students will leave with several fully fleshed out formulas, as well as a deeper understanding of the artistry and the molecules of modern and classic perfumery.

This class is for people at beginner, intermediate and advanced intermediate levels.
