I heard about the course when I visited the Cotswold Perfumery shop in Bourton-on-the-Water. It was excellent. John’s enthusiasm for his subject made the course. If only he had been my chemistry teacher, I might have learnt something at school!
The whole day was so informative on so many levels – it was wonderful. I would definitely recommend the course. Thank you for a really super day!
The entire day was totally enjoyable. The group was a good mix, and John is a joy. I wouldn’t change anything – it was all marvellous. Thank you for a lovely, well put together day. Even the lunch was tremendous.
I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the course. It was really interesting, informative and enjoyable. John’s presentation style is friendly, entertaining and helpful. Just perfect
I heard about the course from my dad. I enjoyed all of it – the theory and the practical part, particularly testing and making the perfume. I thoroughly enjoyed the day, learnt lots and had fun. Lunch was very good, too!
Fantastic! So much more than I expected. Thank you
It was an inspirational day, thanks to John's teaching style and enthusiasm. It has inspired me to continue my interest in making liquid soap and to attend the second course. Thank you to John and the team for a wonderful day.
Best part of the course was how John delivered the material and executed and organised the course. Best bespoke perfumery course the UK has to offer.
John is a fantastic and engaging teacher, being with students that are also passionate and truly want to be there also adds to the experience!
Fantastic; so much more than I expected. Thank you :)
It was an inspirational day thanks to John's teaching style and enthusiasm. It has inspired me to continue my interest in making liquid soap and possibly doing the second course at some stage. It was good to have a small number of people on the course to enable people to ask questions. Thank you to John and the team for a wonderful day.
Extremely helpful. A must for everyone in fragrance industry
It's great to to be inspired and informed by an obvious expert in their field. It generates a buzz of enthusiasm in the room.
