Artisanal Perfumery Courses: July in NYC

Natural perfumer Alec Lawless of UK's Essentially Me line will be leading two in-depth natural perfumery courses this July in New York City. Both courses will be taught at Manhattan's Open Centre, and will focus on creative and technical approaches to making fragrances from the finest natural aromatic ingredients available.

The sessions are offered as a comprehensive five-day Artisan Perfumery Course, with emphasis on creating fragrances for others, as well as the shorter Perfume Masterclass, which looks at the rules for blending simple and complex accords from different aroma families.

The courses are offered between July 9-24. For dates, times, prices and curriculum, go to the Essentially Me website.

Anyone who's read Lawless' accessible and entertaining book Artisan Perfumery, or Being Led by the Nose will know that he's a skilled and talented teacher and communicator -- with great stories about his world travels sourcing raw perfume ingredients. If only I were in New York City this July....
