Question from Anonymous
Hello! Do students leave with a sample perfume?
Answer from Gustavo R. Verified Educator
Hi! In this session, we walk you through a history of perfume, extraction methods and scent families, among other things. You interact with perfumes and perfumer's materials, but you do not create a scent as part of the session. If you'd like to make your own, we suggest our Blending Potions course!

This class was exceptional and it totally exceeded my expectations. The profesor is a wealth of information; a total savant in both the chemistry involved and the landscape of the industry. He will provide you with the most important tools to start your fragrance-making journey. I 100% recommend!
