    Create a Collection

    You will save $$$ when you learn how to dilute your oils for experimenting. 
    If you're confused about all the conflicting information, on whether or not to dilute your perfumery ingredients, when you should dilute, and at what ratios, then this is the course for you!

    Bonus Chapter!

    Using the techniques devised by an iconic perfumer and teacher, Jean Carles. You can practice creating very simple accords using your diluted collection. It's a great way to start seeing how two oils work together and whether they should be blended together at all!

    Course questions

    Do I Need Any Experience or Prior Knowledge? 

    It's better if you understand the basics of perfumery. You can take the fun Fragrance 101 course to find out more. 

    Do I Need Any Oils For The course? 

    Yes! Otherwise you'll never learn how to dilute and weigh your ingredients!
    You can use any oils you like and you'll need alcohol suitable for perfumery. You can find more details in the curriculum below. One of the lessons discusses which type of alcohols you should be buying.

    Do you sell 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.

    "Whatever fragranced products you make, if you create your own scents, you'll know how much experimenting you do! These 'little' tests can cost a fortune if you don't learn how to do them correctly. In perfumery we weigh ingredients. It's simply more accurate than using drops, and you'll get consistent results with your blends. BUT, unless you have a tree that grows money, you're going to need a diluted collection to experiment with. You will save money and your precious materials by doing so.

    By having an experimental collection of oils, you can be braver with your choices, and feel confident in making more brilliant mistakes. That may just turn out to be masterpieces."
