BONUS #1

Private Facebook Group

This group is exclusively for my online course students to ask questions and get my personal help. Currently the only way to do this is to become a private client at a minimum investment of £1500. There is a wealth of information already in this group from questions asked by previous students and from those who have already gone through the programme and done the work. You get lifetime access to this group. (Value: priceless)

BONUS #2

Live Q&A Calls

Throughout the course there will be (at least) 5 live 1hr Q&A calls for all students to get their questions answered. We will do more if needed throughout the 14 weeks. The calls will be recorded and you will be able to submit your questions beforehand in case you can’t make it live. Again this is only something I do with private clients (Value £1250+)

BONUS #3

Create Your Brand Story Masterclass (Online)

I know that many of you are taking this course because you either have already or want to create fragrance or beauty business. The story you tell about your products and your brand is possibly more important than the products themselves. If you want to stand out you need to tell a great story. This is a brand new masterclass I will be offering in September 2017 (Value £197)

BONUS #4

Mindset Masterclass (Online)

One of the biggest challenges we face when starting anything new is the fear that we are not good enough, we don’t know enough and we will fail. This masterclass is  going to be of huge value even if you are not yet starting a business. The perfumery industry is full of things to trip you up so make sure you are ready for any hurdles you come up against. What I’ll be teaching in this masterclass are things I have used over the last 14 years in my business but have never taught publicly before and will take place in September 2017 (Value £197)

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.

 

 

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
