A rare opportunity to study with Ayala Moriel - a master and world-leader of modern Natural Perfumery - and truly immerse yourself in the world of perfumery from the comfort of your own home.
The Chypre online course covers studying the raw materials, learning about the history of the Chypre fragrance family and the sub-categories in this family. Students will be introduced to composition concepts such as perfume structure, and with basic technical skills such as how to blend an alcohol based perfume, how to write a formula. IN the practical workshops that take place each afternoon, students will be building accords and creating simple solid perfumes, as well one representative perfume from the Chypre family.

Course Schedule and Structure:

The mornings (8:30am-12pm) are dedicated to theory and studying olfaction (discerning between notes). The afternoons (1pm-3:30pm) are a lab session which is dedicated to the practical implementations of what was studied in the morning, i.e. weighing, measuring, recording, formulation, composition and compounding.

Students are required to purchase a course textbook, and are also encouraged to procure their own Basic Essences Kit prior to their first course start date.

Course Schedule and Structure:
The course runs for 12 weeks (3 months), with weekly sessions on Zoom at regular times. Each session runs for 1.5hrs, with time for olfactive studies, lecture and Q&A for students to address problem-solving, feedback for assignments, etc.
The fee includes all aspects of participation, except for the raw materials. These must be purchased separately (you will receive a list of materials once you've registered to the course).
