The Art of Botanical Perfume: A Day Long Intensive


With Roxana Villa, Botanical Perfumer, Owner of Illuminated Perfume

Join us on a fragrant journey into the ancient art and craft of botanical perfume. Learn the fundamentals of fragrance construction as we intoxicate ourselves in the divine aromas of nature. Are you allergic to or avoid synthetic fragrances? This class is designed for you! In this immersive class we will explore and use materials from the palette of an authentic botanical perfumer while delving into modalities of blending with a focus on your own artistic impressions and expression. Each student will leave the class with a deeper awareness of scent, understand the key components to building a fragrance and create their very own custom perfume.

Please arrive unscented. Be mindful of laundry, cosmetic and bath & beauty products on this special day. We need to keep our palettes clear and free of synthetic odorants.
