In perfumery we use weights not drops. It's more accurate, and it just makes sense if you want to have consistent fragrances from one batch to another.

Course contents

Melanie, I had a FABULOUS time! I learned so much. I took the class in Grasse, France and I didn't learn half as much as I did from you. You can tell you have a real passion for this and you truly love it. I love your little side notes which were really helpful.

Melanie Jane

"Whatever fragranced products you make, if you create your own scents, you'll know how much experimenting you do! These 'little' tests can cost a fortune if you don't learn how to do them correctly. In perfumery we weigh ingredients. It's simply more accurate than using drops, and you'll get consistent results with your blends. BUT, unless you have a tree that grows money, you're going to need a diluted collection to experiment with. You will save money and your precious materials by doing so.

By having an experimental collection of oils, you can be braver with your choices, and feel confident in making more brilliant mistakes. That may just turn out to be masterpieces."

Course questions

Do I Need Any Experience or Prior Knowledge? 

It's better if you understand the basics of perfumery. You can take the fun Fragrance 101 course to find out more. 

Do I Need Any Oils For The course? 

Yes! Otherwise you'll never learn how to dilute and weigh your ingredients!
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.

Not in this course. But there is a workbook that you can complete with your experiments.

Will I get a certificate?

A completion certificate is awarded upon completion.
If you enjoy the fragrance of a rose, you must accept the thorns which it bears.
