Fragrance designer and perfumer Frank Bloem introduces you to the world behind fragrance design and perfumes. In this one-day course, Frank will teach you how to build a perfume and introduces you to a wide range of ingredients. You will create your own perfume just as perfumers do. Not only will you go home at the end of the day with 10 ml of your own perfume, you will also know how you could go on making perfumes!
What will you be doing?
In the course, you will learn to build a perfume step by step. Via base, middle and top notes, you slowly climb up to your own composition. You meticulously note down all the drops of the different raw materials you want to use, because that is the only way you will be able to make your perfume the same way again. You will smell a large number of fragrances (natural and synthetic) and learn to understand the function of the different components. At the end of the day, you will go home with a bottle of your own perfume. You’ll go home knowing the basic techniques, the difference between synthetic and natural ingredients, having been introduced to animal fragrances and able to explain to a complete stranger what top notes are!
