Melanie Jane

"This course is perfect for advanced learners. It's basically the final module of the Natural Perfumery Diploma course. Students who take this module, are particularly interested in the therapeutic aspects of natural ingredients, and want to learn how to make their blends smell better than the generic, medicinal essential oil blends that saturate today's market.

They'll also learn about fragrance for skincare and business basics, such as legalities, labelling, marketing, branding,  pricing, outsourcing, and creating scents for clients. The information in the course is based on my own experience and what I've learnt from other experts in the industry."

Course questions

What is this course?

In a nutshell, it's Module 3 of the Natural Perfumery Diploma. Some students wish to take the Perfume Creator Course first, and join the Advanced course when they feel confident enough to take the next step of creating for skincare, aromatherapy, individual clients, and learn about business basics.

Are there any prerequisites to the advanced course?

You will need to understand how to create accords and finished fragrances. If you don't know the basic principles of perfumery you may struggle with this course. I advise students to first complete the first two modules of the Diploma course (beginners and intermediate).

Will I get a certificate?

A CPD Accredited Certificate is awarded if you have completed all three modules and a successful exam result. Otherwise you can download a regular completion certificate. You can find out more about CPD here

Do you sell the perfumery ingredients?

YES! I now have a 63-piece raw materials kit called ‘La Petite Parfumerie’ which is an exclusive collaboration with The Perfumer’s Apprentice in the USA. BUY THE KIT HERE
They ship worldwide (except Africa and KSA due to restrictions) and the kit is a perfect balance of luxury and essential ingredients. With a price tag of just $280, it’s an easy decision and I don’t make any profit from it because I want to keep it affordable for my students.
However, you may wish to source your own ingredients, so I’ve provided a verified suppliers list.
I also offer advice on the right equipment you’ll need during the course with tips on how to buy them.

How do I access the course?

The course is right here at the Scent Academy, a structured online learning portal that gives you access to all you need for an effective learning experience.
Once you sign up, your log in details are emailed to you so you can create your own password. You will then have a dashboard which shows the courses you are enrolled on and the FRAGQUEEN community.

When does my access to the course start?

As soon as you pay you have immediate access to the  full course.

How long will I have access to the course?

You will have 12 months access to the Advanced Perfumery course, so you can take you own time, there are no deadline pressures and the course can work around your lifestyle.
Some students complete it in 4 weeks some take more than 6 months.
If you need more time, we'll give you that too!

Is there a limit to the daily access?

You have 24/7 access which means you can learn at any time from anywhere in the world with absolutely no limits! The lessons require a good internet connection, but the workbooks and guides can be downloaded so you can access them offline.
Think of it like Netflix, you can rewind, fast forward, re-watch, pause, or stop and come back later!

Is there any homework?

There is one practical, optional assignment at the end of the module. You can take your time to do this as there is no rush and you can submit it through the online learning portal. Once submitted I will review it and give you constructive and helpful feedback.
I am sure with my teachings you will get it approved first time! But if you have gone a little bit awry I can help you get back on track and you may resubmit it as many time as you wish.

Is there an exam?

There is a multiple choice exam with 60 questions, the pass rate is 70%. I need to make sure that you have learnt enough and understood each module before you can gain your certificate and the exam is part of the CPD requirement. The exam is optional for this course, but if you don't want to take it, I can only award you a non-CPD completion certificate.

Do you offer support throughout the course?

Absolutely! You have two easy options for educational support:
  1. Email Support. Simply ask me what you need help with.
  2. Course Interaction. During the course you can ask Melanie Jane a question directly from your dashboard.
This is an amazing course and Melanie Jane is a very charismatic and beautiful teacher! I'm in love with all products that were taught during this course. I don't remember the last time when I felt so much passion and enthusiasm. Thank you!
