"Join me, as I show you the art of scent blending. I'm here to share, the knowledge, experience, and best advice I've garnered over the last 25 years.

I've been creating natural fragrances since 1998, and have taught over 3,000 students worldwide. In 2019 I created a fragrance for a Carlsberg beer, and developed perfume making activities for Toyota. I've designed perfumes for influencers and brands, and launched a bespoke range of natural perfumes, skincare, and aromatherapy products.

I have dedicated the last 5 years making the best, most engaging and affordable fragrance training platform online.  You know it makes sense to learn from someone who has been there and done that!"
