WHY IS THIS COURSE DIFFERENT

I have developed and trained for companies as well as my own students and built my own 12 year old retail business from scratch. I have no affiliation with any company and I will always be 100% transparent and truthful – no fluff guaranteed!

Over the years I’ve trained a huge variety of people from all walks of life in fragrance creation. From buyers for huge brands, fragrance professionals, retail staff, bloggers, journalists, small business owners, aromatherapists, herbalists, fashion designers, artists, accountants and the odd neuroscientist – most were complete newbies to perfumery.

This course is a combination of what I learned in the industry and the most asked questions and struggles I get from the students I teach in my live perfume making workshops.

FAQS

Q1: Do you provide a materials kit? What do I need to buy to do the course?

I’m not a materials supplier so I do not provide a kit myself (due to extra costs involved and difficulty in shipping worldwide) nor do I recommend you buy lots of materials before you start the course. Here’s why: when you start out in perfumery there are some basics you will need but there are lots that you might never use. The online course comes with a list of recommended materials and suppliers but I suggest you buy just a few things from the list to get started. As you progress in the course you will instinctively know what you want to try. Buy based on what you want to create, this will save you money in the long run and ensure you don’t have bottles of stuff gathering dust.

Other than that, a small set of scales plus smelling strips and mixing bottles are all you will need along with the base of your choice. I recommend people start by using cosmetic grade denatured ethanol (perfumers alcohol) but you can also use an oil base if you wish or one of the other perfumery diluents such as IPM (iso propyl myristate) or DPG (dipropylene glycol)

Q2: How much time will it take?

The course runs over 14 weeks with a module every 2 weeks. Each module is approximately 1.5hrs of video lessons (some modules are more, some less) and a workbook to complete. This means if you want to keep pace with the course you have 2 weeks to do each module. The exercises vary and are things that you will keep repeating over your years of perfume making (creating accords and training your nose for example) so there is no rush to get everything done in the 14 weeks. Remember the more time you put into doing the exercises, the more you will achieve so it is completely up to you. Watching a video and reading information will not make you a perfumer. Study plus practice will. You have lifetime access to the materials so you do not need to keep pace with the course if you don’t want to.

Q3: How can I learn perfumery online?

Perfumery is both theory and practice. The course is set out to give you the tools you need to do your own practice at home. The lessons are theory plus guided exercises for you to do. I can guide you and show you the way but you must commit to doing the practical yourself. The private Facebook group is always available for questions and the live Q&A’s are set for you to ask you questions live. I also run live workshops throughout the year that are good companions to the online course.

Q4: What If I can’t attend the live calls?

No problem – you can submit your questions for me to answer live, the call times will vary so we can cover all time zones.

Q5: Is it just natural perfumery?

The basics of perfumery that I will be teaching are the same for both naturals and synthetics and therefore we touch on both. I would suggest that you start with studying naturals first so that is what we focus on mostly. However many students go on to use synthetics too and I am happy to answer questions on anything inside the Facebook group.

Q6: Can I pay in instalments?

Yes of course – there is a 3 part payment plan available.

Q7: Do I get a certificate?

Once you have completed the course you can take an online test. If you get the answers correct you will get a certificate of completion.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THIS COURSE

The most important thing that I gained from your class and on line course was conviction and confidence to take my ideas further and experiment and the realisation that there are many valid ways into perfumery. You teach in a way that allows people to understand that making mistakes in formulas is just as valid as the ones that are successful as they provide the learning and that experimenting is fun. I found that your course gave a congruent framework to use and also connect with knowledge previously gained and was easy to take in the format you presented. I would wholeheartedly say to anyone wanting or thinking about doing a class with you that a class with Karen is invaluable and will open up this the possibilities in the  world of perfumery ! Karen is approachable, friendly and encouraging and communicates her vast knowledge succinctly and effectively. JANET
