Balsam & Resins Amber Basenote Perfume Class : ONLINE February 2021
Beginner level class
Intermediate level online class
FEBRUARY 26th, 2021 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST
This online class will focus on exploring natural resinous base notes and building accords using the essences included in the student materials kit. These essences are tricky to work with as they are sticky and/or solid materials at room temperature but are worth the work as they are the cornerstone of many styles of fragrances and have been used for centuries to create perfumes. Students will learn how to dilute these materials to render them workable and how to use these ancient resins and balsams for longevity and effect in fragrance formulation. In addition we will also focus on the distinguishing characteristics of these materials, such as why we might choose to use benzoin absolute in formulating a fragrance instead of benzoin essential oil.
Each attendee will create four base note accords: incense, amber, gourmand, woody/forest.
Your materials kit is valued at over $100.00 and included in the price of the course. Materials will be mailed to students prior to class date. The materials kit contains the following ten botanical essences in 2.75 ml. vials:
