Date: Tuesday, June 19, 2018

What is perfume and how is it made? How is natural perfume different from an aromatherapy blend? What do the 'notes' in perfume really mean, and what do the venerated ingredients of the perfume world -- oakmoss, vintage sandalwood, ambergris, jasmine, rose otto, galbanum -- actually smell like? Join natural perfumer Priya Narasimhan of Priya Means Love for an interactive, sensory talk on natural perfume. We'll explore the art and science of perfume-making, and together we'll take an olfactory tour through a dozen key botanical essences at the core of modern natural perfumery. You'll learn about the construction of natural perfume -- from base, heart, and top notes to ratios and concentrations of essences, from the effect of the base medium to the critical role of time in perfumery -- and you'll learn about the differences between natural and conventional perfume. We'll talk about the techniques of natural perfumery, how to turn inspiration into a finished product, and how to approach the creation of your own botanical scent. You'll leave with a sensory grounding in natural perfume as well as a sample kit of a dozen key botanical essences to take home and compare to the 'notes' of perfumes in your collection -- and to use, perhaps, to create your own personal, signature botanical fragrance.

Pre-Registration is required and closes Sunday, June 17th end of day!
