Artisan Perfume Spring School 2021 - Part 1, online
Five days of Scenthusiasm, with daily Zoom discussions.
29 March - 2 April 2021 - Scenthusiasm(TM) Week 1
We've been running 4160Tuesdays for eight years now, and in that time we've been voted Independent House of of Year 2015 by EauMG and Indie House of the Year 2017 and perfume of the year 2018 by CaFleureBon. Dirty Honey won EauMG Indie Scent of the Year 2016, New York '55 was second in the Stylist Best Beauty Awards 2016; Maxed Out, Midnight in the Palace Garden and Mother Nature's Naughty Daughters have been finalists in the Fragrance Foundation Awards.
Why tell you this? Because despite being industry mavericks, we're doing something right, and we truly love to share everything we know with people who want to like to learn new things.
In 2018 we decided to open up the studio for a week in August for people who'd like to come over and make scents the way we do it, and to explore their own methods too; it's sold out twice now, so we're doing it again, this time in spring. 2020 moved online, and we've adapted.
Every day, Sarah runs three Zoom meetings, timed for Asia Europe, then America, but you may join in as many as you can make.
What you'll do:
Smell materials - naturals and synthetics - and learn how to blend them to make balanced accords.
Discover a range of perfume styles and the key materials which define them.
Use our professional materials to create accords and finished fragrances, with the option of using materials you already own instead.
Learn how to create by weight, dilute your materials for your experiments and record your formulas accurately.
Dates: Monday 29th March to Friday 2nd April
Monday - an introduction to fragrance groups and blending accords
Tuesday - balancing accords, and improving our best-selling perfume.
Wednesday - constructing a citrus woods fragrance.
Thursday - creating a floral musk, and a bespoke perfume.
Friday - all day blendfest: adventures in creative perfumer.
