All our workshops & practical courses are delivered in a perfume atelier environment with real perfumers’ organs sitting up to 2 students per organ and by professional and qualified perfumers with years of experience and established in the industry to give you a genuine experience of the Art of perfumery. Our tutors are all experienced and established perfumers, with some members of the French society of perfumers and will teach you to approach perfumery with a perfumer’s mind. Because the maximum of participants per session is limited to 12, it makes it possible to offer semi-individual tutor sessions.
All materials are included in our prices. Course handouts will be made available for the course as well as a perfumer note book with compliments of the school. You are allowed to take written notes but we do not accept the use of a laptop/tablet for taking notes except if required for the purpose of the lesson nor do we allow audio recording during our courses.
