Advanced Olfaction Program
This course is designed for perfume professionals and enthusiasts who have completed Course 01, and are ready to further advance their olfactive knowledge, olfactive memory and understanding of how the materials all work together.
Through 18 hours of live, personalized instruction from Kathryn and Tami, you'll receive an intensive deep dive through the 17 fragrance facets that make up a perfume: from raw materials to iconic fine fragrances. This is an advanced smelling course, and students will engage in many practical smelling exercises. We smell and study together for 9 weeks, two hours per session over Zoom.
