Designed for students who want to excel in their studies of natural perfumery. This week-long intensive course runs Mon-Thu from 9:30am-4pm, and Friday from 9am-1:30pm 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.
The bonus Winter session in 2016 covers studying the raw materials, perfume structure, how to blend a formula, how to write a formula, building accords and creating floral bouquet perfumes in an alcohol base.
The fee includes all materials and supplies used during the week. Students are required to bring their own course textbook (which would have been purchased at the beginning of their studies), and their own Advanced Essences Kit prior to their first course start date.
Prerequisites: Must have read the book and completed Citrus & Cologned and/or Lab 101, Fougère, Chypre and Oriental courses. Completed study guides for all essences in the Intermediate and Advanced Essences Kit.
Correspondence Course Option:

This program is more flexible, as it allows you to choose which modules to study in person at the studio, and which ones to study remotely, on your own.
It is, however, important that you take the modules in the order that they are offered, as follows:
You can register for the correspondence courses anytime, and complete the entire 8-module program at your own pace. Studying will progress according to the self-study guide that will be sent to you upon registration, which will include:
We recommend that you also purchase the essences kit we've designed for this module, which are the raw materials unique to each module, and which are important for completing the practical components of the course.
