FOUNDATION OF NATURAL PERFUMERY is a comprehensive guide and resource for students of perfumery and professional perfumers alike. At its core are 55 formulae and recipes, glossary defining over 250 terms, 7 useful tables and charts and 52 exercises for guided self-study. Originally a correspondence course and textbook for Ayala Moriel’s professional four-year natural perfumery program, this updated book brims with an abundance of new material and expanded chapters. You’ll be guided through the theory and practice of mastering the art of perfumery through creative and structural approaches to perfume composition, exercises, study guides, a glossary, trouble-shooting tips and more. But most importantly, this new edition contains 55 formulae including perfume compositions for each fragrance family and recipes for solid perfumes, tinctures, bases and accords. At its heart, this book offers hands-on guidance alongside a rich sensory experience, which follows Moriel’s unique teaching style. Students will not only discover the world of fragrance, they will develop their own olfactory vocabulary, adapt good working habits and ethics, and finally, create well-balanced and original perfumes. Ayala Moriel is a master perfumer and a leader in contemporary natural perfumery. In 2001 she began composing inspired botanical perfumes for her eponymous brand, which have become world-renowned for their artistry, storytelling and integrity. A passionate advocate for sensory education, she shares her knowledge and expertise through her Foundation of Natural Perfumery professional program, private classes, workshops, and her poetic SmellyBlog. She divides her time between the West Coast and the Western Galilee.
