"The Building Accords course was designed for students who have perfume blending experience, but are frustrated at not being able to quite nail their scents. Perfumery is an art, and one that most people overcomplicate, therefore the lessons demonstrate how to take it once step at a time. Building blocks is an overused terms in perfumery, but if you look at it like Lego, you'll get the point"

Once you've nailed these simple step-by-step techniques, you be astonished at how easy making fabulous fragrances can be!

Course questions

Do I Need Any Experience or Prior Knowledge? 

It's better if you understand the basics of perfumery and have knowledge of working with oils. You might just be starting out, but are frustrated with your blends not working out the way you want them to. The simple techniques in the course will show you how take the guesswork out of making fragrances. It might be an idea for you to take the other short courses, Dilution & Weighing and Training your Nose.

Do I Need Any Oils For The course? 

Yes! Otherwise you'll never learn how to build accords!
You can use any oils you like and you'll need alcohol suitable for perfumery. You can find more details in the curriculum below. One of the lessons discusses which type of alcohols you should be buying.

Do you sell 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.
