Two Day Blending Intensive

  • Institute for Art and Olfaction (Los Angeles) 932 Chung King Road Los Angeles, CA, 90012 United States (map)

Get the inside scoop on creating natural perfumes at this hands-on, two-day perfumery workshop, where you will learn the art of formulating with natural essences and discover best practices to utilize when blending.

Led by natural perfumer Jessica Hannah, we’ll spend the weekend smelling the materials, creating formulas, and discussing classical and contemporary perfume structures, plant origins, and the historical context of materials. Students will learn by blending and re-blending formulas, while increasing crucial vocabulary, concepts and olfactory recognition.

Through friendly and focused group critique, we will discuss where a blend is successfully achieving the student’s intentions (and where adjustments can be made to the formula).

 This advanced course is helpful for the person who loves to dabble at home as well as the person interested in starting their own product line. No prior experience necessary, though attending the Beginner Natural Perfume workshop first is helpful.
