What you'll learn in this personal beauty class:

Smell is the most neglected of our senses yet it has an instantaneous power to penetrate our consciousness invoking memories and emotion. Odors are ethereal and elusive yet can strongly attract or repel.

As a concerned consumer, you are choosing organic food, seeking out sustainable products and opting for eco-friendly packaging. But what about the fragrance you wear? That signature scent is likely composed of synthetic materials (as most commercial fragrances are), mass-produced, packaged and shipped around the world in the millions of units. 

Natural perfumery is a much different process that uses only essential oils and precious absolutes that are extracted from plants. Like fine wine, subtle differences can be found from the same plant from year to year depending on soil conditions and climate meaning that it is not an exact science but a creative alchemical process.

In this sensory workshop, we will examine the artisanal art of natural perfumery. Students will gain a basic understanding of the sense of smell, the history of perfume, the advent of synthetic ingredients and the return to naturals. Perfume ingredients and formulation will be explored and each participant will leave with two bottles of their own bespoke perfume.

No prior knowledge of perfume making is required to attend this class. Students are required to bring a notebook to class, and all other materials will be provided.

Class will be held at 438 Ninth St. in Park Slope, Brooklyn. It's between 6th and 7th Avenues but far closer to 7th. For orientation it's the corner that Starbucks is on. The 7th Ave. F train stop is right on my corner. Go up the front stoop and ring the bottom bell. Every so often the bell doesn't work so just call me from the stoop and I'll come and get you. The number is 718 788 6480.

What an intimate and comfortable atmosphere! And she is very lovely, knowledgeable and a true master at her craft. I learned so much in just a few hours. I'm looking forward to taking another class very soon.

Reviewed by Anonymous on 10/9/2017
Julianne is a lovely and knowledgeable teacher. We covered 40+ essential oils and absolutes, going over the notes/properties of each, to create our own blends. The class is intimate and very hands on. It was useful to be able to smell, see, and touch ingredients that as a beginner you may not have immediate access to or know if you are ready to make an investment in. All in all an excellent and enjoyable introduction to scents and natural perfumery for those starting out in their exploration.

Loved the class and the environment. The teacher was super knowledgeable and detailed. In this setting, I did not feel rushed or pressured to finish quickly. Furthermore, I scheduled for part two in October.

Reviewed by Ruth R. on 9/10/2017
Julianne is super knowledgable and friendly. It was so fun to have access to dozens of oils and to create two personal perfumes to take home. I left the class feeling really inspired to experiment with more blending on my own and hope to take one of the more specialized upcoming classes offered by Julianne.
