If you are keen to learn about all aspects of perfumery and want to create custom perfumes either out of personal interest or as a business, then this five day advanced course is the one for you.
You’ll be taught by the master, our chief perfumer, John Stephen who will pass on his knowledge in an engaging and informative manner as he describes the process involved in making commercially viable perfumes.
You’ll learn how to create complex fragrances, discover the professional requirements for perfume creation and understand the legislation involved. This course covers essential components of an advanced perfume course including toxicology, allergens and packaging requirements.
You’ll spend much of the time experimenting with a different selection of interesting ingredients which you will be introduced to and you will make samples of your very own bespoke perfumes to take home with you, together with their specification so that you can reorder them and/or refine and develop them further.
In order to check the health and legal requirements associated with your perfume specifications an automated Spreadsheet procedure is used. This advanced course includes a day of painless top up Spreadsheet training.
The cost of our courses include refreshments as well as lunch in a pretty riverside restaurant in beautiful Bourton-on-the-Water.
