"The intermediate course will show you is how to design and create outstanding scents by using my own simple techniques and the fool-proof methods I learned at the Grasse institute of perfumery."

Patrick Jones - Course author
The perfume course taught me how to pursue my passion of perfumery in a professional way, since I'm running the business with my family. I really enjoyed taking this course online, it was very well explained, and fun, and there's sufficient time for one to practice before moving on to the next step. My future plan is to launch a new perfume only brand with a modern take on Arabian fragrances.

Course questions

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 is it possible to learn perfumery online, isn't it better in a live setting to get the best learning experience?

My students say that the online course is like being in the same room as me, except I won’t interrupt you when you speak! But seriously, the lectures are recorded, they are not just boring slides and workbooks, I have video tutorials as well. We work together through the course and in the section where we learn about the oils and the families I am there with you, experiencing those same oils as you while I educate you about them.

You will feel very involved and engaged. I have designed the course the way I would want to learn, and all my students absolutely love it. You will also learn a lot more than you could in a short course.
If you really want a live class then I offer non-residential 5-day courses in France. You can find out more by clicking the Corporate site link in the site footer or visit

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 all of the content.

How long will I have access to the course?

You will have 12 months access to the course, so you can take you own time, there are no deadline pressures and the course can work around your lifestyle. PLUS you can get an extension if you need more time!

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!

Do you only teach about natural ingredients?

I teach mostly naturals as they are easier to understand when first approaching perfumery, but I do also educate you about natural isolates and synthetic molecules, quite a number are discussed during the course and you can use them to make some of your perfume blends.

Will I get a certificate?

A completion certificate is available to download once you've completed the course.

Do you offer support throughout the course?

Absolutely! Unlike some other online perfume courses who I won't mention...

  1. An exclusive WhatsApp group is filled with wonderful students, who can answer your questions and provide support and inspiration. 
  2. Email Support. Simply ask me what you need help with.
  3. Course Interaction. During the course you can ask Melanie Jane a question directly from your dashboard.
The world doesn't need another bad perfume!
