To a non-perfumer it might sound weird or even a bit kinky, but I still admit to being a perfume-nerd whose favorite pastime is playing with fragrance molecules.
My latest voyage into perfume nerd-ery is exploring the world of natural isolates - fragrance molecules that are used to enhance and decorate natural perfumes.
The technology used to separate these little molecules from their botanical sources is pretty fascinating. I’ve even organized my favorite isolates into a collection kit and developed some formulating suggestions that should appeal to the “Inner Perfume-Nerd” in us all.
You’re invited to join if you’d like to.
The New Trend in Natural Perfuming
The use of natural isolates is a new cutting edge trend in natural perfumery.
This online course is designed to allow students and professionals of natural perfumery to take advantage of this new trend by providing a basic understanding of what an isolate is, how it is produced, and how to incorporate isolates into their own perfume compositions. Attendees will also receive a comprehensive bibliography for personal reference.
Upon completion of this class, the student will have a basic understanding of natural isolates and will be ready to begin blending using these fragrance materials.
A kit of natural isolates is available to all registrants.
