Aseyah has been awarded our first scholarship to study the Art of Perfumery for the 2013/2014 course programme. She is from the Cape Town area in South Africa and here is what she has to say:
''I remember that moment so clearly…the moment that I realised that I had found what I’ve been searching for – that thing that sets me apart; that thing that excites me; that thing that defines me. It was like Spirit, in frustration, had whispered it directly into my ear and I spoke the words to my husband and son, “I want to be a perfumer”.
Elizabeth was so keen and motivated to learn perfumery professionally that we decided to grant her full scholarship for the 2015/2016 course programme online.
Elizabeth has been into production of Personal/Homecare products range in Lagos, Nigeria since 2012 with a focus on home products, sanitisers and fresheners, mainly distributed to private schools, places of worship, personal connections and retail outlets.
Thanks to the Perfumery Art School scholarship, Elizabeth hopes to gain sufficient technical training to compete favourably with products made by blue chip companies in Nigeria, possibly increasing the demand for her products due to an increase in quality and stability of the finished products to the international standards.
Elizabeth is a graduate of Biochemistry from the University of Maiduguri in Nigeria. After the mandatory one year National Service Corps, she worked in Nigeria Bottling Company Plc, Lagos as an Executive assistant to several directors both expatriate and Nigerian. After her thirteen years career in the Manufacturing sector she resigned in order to start her own business.
Apart from the desire to improve on her existing products, she would like to focus on her passion for body sprays and perfumes.
