We get many demands from people who are seeking to learn perfumery either as a start to a new professional life or because it is a passionate hobby they never thought they could learn while going through the rat race. Most such demands are genuine and well-intended but when it comes to the nitty-gritty of learning perfumery, some students might give up at the first hurdle and we often hear ''I never thought it was so hard!''
Let's be clear! Perfumery is not for everyone like painting, cooking, playing music or any indulging Art is also not a prerogative to everyone . Yes you might like visiting an Art gallery and appreciate the work of an artist, thinking ''I'd love to learn to paint like this'' or love the sound of piano being tapped by talented fingers but the Passion does not make you become an artist in those fields.
When it comes to perfumery, people are surprised to see how much mathematics and accuracy are needed in this Art. Perfumery is NOT just about concocting potions during the weekend or simply blending note A with note B and there you have a perfume! Despite the numerous weekend/short courses now available at every street's corner, we regret to tell you that you will not become a perfumer after 2 days. If it was that easy, there would be more perfumers in this world even though we acknowledge that this Art has become more democratic in the last couple of years.
