Denyse Beaulieu of the Grain de Musc blog will be teaching a 3-day course titled 'Decoding Fragrance' at the London College of Fashion this coming June:
The course, designed and given by the Paris-based fragrance writer Denyse Beaulieu with the input of master perfumers, is a direct, hands-on, sensory initiation to perfume appreciation through games, visuals, discussions and of course smell, smell, smell. It is conceived to appeal to the novice perfume lover as much as to the confirmed fragrance aficionado.
Discover raw materials, both synthetic and natural, and how they're used in fragrance composition. Experience the greatest perfumes in history and the way they echo the social and sartorial trends of the 20th century. Explore the cutting-edge scents of the 21st century, with the development of auteur perfumery and experimental compositions. And above all, learn to connect your nose to words and images. Your world will never smell the same.
