The palette of natural perfumers is expanding, and natural isolates are one way to add new notes, nuances and special effects to your perfumes as well as challenge your composition skills. In the theoretical part of this course you will learn about the different types of isolates, how they are manufactured, a little bit about their chemistry, and how to know if your raw material is truly natural or not, learn to identify isolates by blind-testing, find out where they are naturally occurring and be able to pick them out in a composition or a naturally-occurring olfactory scenario; and and last but not least: learn about the qualities that make isolates useful and valuable when composing fragrances. In the practical lab sessions, you will incorporate these exciting raw materials into compositions of your own, and receive hands-on guidance from master perfumer Ayala Moriel addressing issues unique to your style, blending and process, and problem-solving along the way.
Designed for the most advanced students of perfumery, and for working perfumers who wish to polish their skills at manipulating the composition with much finesse and refinement, and master the use of unique, rare and unusual accessory notes. This week-long intensive course runs Mon-Thu from 9:30am-4:30pm, and 9:00am-1:30pm on Friday, and offers theoretical and practical guidance alongside hands-on lab exercises and experiments. Friday is dedicated for feedback, summary and one-on-one sessions with Ayala for each participant.
