Balsam family


An introduction to the world of perfumery. We start with an overview of the Natural and Synthetic families, learning the classification of materials. We will use the 'Etude Olfactive des Essences et des Absolues' created by Jean Carles and the Olfactive Study of Synthetic Products charts.

This family includes opoponax, Tonka beans and the sweet balsamic notes of Peru balsam and benzoin. Many of these materials are found in the great classic Oriental fragrances such as Shalimar and Opium.

The second part of the class will be devoted to blending and you will be able to take home your creations.

No experience is necessary. All you need to bring is a notebook, an open mind, a clear nose and a sense of fun!

Also, have a look at the Resources link where you'll find suggested reading and other useful bits and bobs.
