November 2022: Weekend Natural Perfumery Intensive Course ONLINE - PART 2

 Beginner level class                        

This is an ONLINE natural botanical perfumery class that will take place the weekend of November 5-6, 2021. We have expanded our extremely popular in-person Weekend Intensive Course into three separate online classes in order to cover more information in greater depth. This course is Introduction to Natural Perfumery: Part 2.  This class will teach students how to independently formulate and evaluate their compositions while building upon content from Part 1.

Students must take the Part 1 course before registering for Part 2. Upon completion of all three segments of the Natural Perfumery Intensive Course, students will receive a certificate of completion. In order to complete your registration and attend Part 2, students are required to purchase the Natural Perfumery Expansion Kit. Please note this kit must be purchased by October 1st.  We encourage you to sign up for this class as early as possible, as it typically sells out well ahead of the class meeting dates.

Topics addressed in this class will include the following:

Day 1: Saturday, November 5th 11:00 am-6:00 pm EST 

-Creating tinctures for perfumery use


-Accord Building


-Labeling and ageing 

-Proper storage of perfumes and perfumery materials

Day 2: Sunday, November 6th 11:00 am-3:00 pm EST

More complex perfumery techniques will be discussed on Day 2, such as:

-tips on creating perfumes with sillage

-troubleshooting formulations

-learning to evaluate your formulations

Upon completion of this course, students will submit one perfume formula from a completed in-class perfume and receive detailed feedback from the perfumer. Feedback will be emailed to the student after submission.

WHO IS TEACHING ME?  Your instructor, the fabulous Charna Ethier, is the nose and founder of Providence Perfume Co., an award winning natural perfumery specializing in luxurious botanical fragrances.
