    "The Perfumer Creator course is for those who may not, just yet, be interested in business basics, fragrances for skincare, or the benefits of essential oils in perfumes. But what this course will show you is how to design and create outstanding scents by using my own simple techniques and the fool-proof methods I learned at the Grasse institute of perfumery.

    If you're in the business of making fragranced products or therapeutic essential oil blends, this course will prove invaluable in helping you appreciate the aromatic aesthetics of your blends, so they don't smell like every other scent on the planet!"

    Course questions

    Do you sell the perfumery ingredients?

    YES! I now have a 63-piece raw materials kit called ‘La Petite Parfumerie’ which is an exclusive collaboration with The Perfumer’s Apprentice in the USA. BUY THE KIT HERE
    They ship worldwide (except Africa and KSA due to restrictions) and the kit is a perfect balance of luxury and essential ingredients. With a price tag of just $280, it’s an easy decision and I don’t make any profit from it because I want to keep it affordable for my students.
    However, you may wish to source your own ingredients, so I’ve provided a verified suppliers list.
    I also offer advice on the right equipment you’ll need during the course with tips on how to buy them.

    Will I learn enough to make my own perfumes?

    You will certainly gain an excellent foundation to start. My courses are very intensive and I teach the way I would want to learn, in a very matter of fact, non waffling way. I teach you the essentials of what you need to know to start your fragrant journey and so much more You will learn more in 2 modules than you would in 2 years of self-studying on forums, blogs and reading books. 

    How is it possible to learn perfumery online, isn't it better in a live setting to get the best learning experience?

    My students say that the online course is like being in the same room as me, except I won’t interrupt you when you speak! But seriously, the lectures are recorded, they are not just boring slides and workbooks, I have video tutorials as well. We work together through the course and in the section where we learn about the oils and the families I am there with you, experiencing those same oils as you while I educate you about them.

    You will feel very involved and engaged. I have designed the course the way I would want to learn, and all my students absolutely love it. You will also learn a lot more than you could in a short course.
    If you really want a live class then I offer non-residential 5-day courses in France. You can find out more by clicking the Corporate site link in the site footer or visit

    How do I access the course?

    The course is right here at the Scent Academy, a structured online learning portal that gives you access to all you need for an effective learning experience.
    Once you sign up, your log in details are emailed to you so you can create your own password. You will then have a dashboard which shows the courses you are enrolled on and the FRAGQUEEN community.

    When does my access to the course start?

    As soon as you pay you have immediate access to the content which is drip fed over 35 days.
    Module 1 is available immediately.
    Module 2 after 35 days.

    How long will I have access to the course?

    You will have 15-months access to the Diploma course, so you can take you own time, there are no deadline pressures and the course can work around your lifestyle.
    Some students complete it in 12 weeks some take more than a year. I am very flexible and supportive of my student's needs so if you need more time you can request it.

    Is there a limit to the daily access?

    You have 24/7 access which means you can learn at any time from anywhere in the world with absolutely no limits! The lessons require a good internet connection, but the workbooks and guides can be downloaded so you can access them offline.
    Think of it like Netflix, you can rewind, fast forward, re-watch, pause, or stop and come back later!

    Do you only teach about natural ingredients?

    I teach mostly naturals as they are easier to understand when first approaching perfumery, but I do also educate you about natural isolates and synthetic molecules, quite a number are discussed during the course and you can use them to make some of your perfume blends.

    Is there any homework?

    There are two practical assignments, one at the end of each module. You can take your time to do this as there is no rush and you submit it through the online learning portal. Once submitted I will review it and give you constructive and helpful feedback.
    I am sure with my teachings you will get it approved first time! But if you have gone a little bit awry I can help you get back on track and you may resubmit it as many time as you wish.

    Is there an exam?

    There is no exam in this course, only on the Diploma course. If you want to go on to take the advanced perfumery course, you can get a CPD accredited certificate once you've completed that.

    Will I get a certificate?

    A completion certificate is available to download once you've completed the course.

    Do you offer support throughout the course?

    Absolutely! Unlike some other online perfume courses, you have several options for educational support:
    1. Join the Community and pose questions to your fellow students or comment on other posts. I am also on there so I can chip in when I think it's necessary. The community is private and only available to paying students, so there'll be no spammers!
    2. Email Support. Simply ask me what you need help with.
    3. Create your own group! You may want to connect with students in your own country or region to discuss popular topics, or help and inspire each other. It's a great way to eMeet others with similar interests without using Facebook and you can be assured of privacy.
    4. Course Interaction. During the course you can see who else is taking part and you can post questions or comments in each video lesson, other students can then offer help or you can simply discuss the content!
    The perfume course taught me how to pursue my passion of perfumery in a professional way, since I'm running the business with my family. I really enjoyed taking this course online, it was very well explained, and fun, and there's sufficient time for one to practice before moving on to the next step. My future plan is to launch a new perfume only brand with a modern take on Arabian fragrances.
