Saturday, August 18 | 1 - 4 PM | 973 Valencia Street, SF
In this natural perfumery workshop, students will explore the foundations of fragrance structure, scent and material families, and the craft of solid perfume making with natural perfumers April Lea of Lvnea Perfume and Mauricio Garcia of Herbcraft Perfumery.
April Lea is the founder of Lvnea Perfume, through which she creates dark and earthy, unisex liquid and solid perfumes exclusively from the natural and botanical realm. Her perfumes can be found on her website and in select brick and mortar stores throughout North America. She currently resides in Montreal, Quebec.
Mauricio is a natural perfumery and certified aromatherapist based in San Francisco. His fascination with the botanical world inspires fragrances that are a crossroads of folklore, fragrance techniques, herbalism and magic.
Students will leave the class with an understanding of the differences between perfume mediums, fragrance materials, the history of solid fragrances and evaluation methods. After discussing and experiencing natural materials from both teacher’s workbenches, students will design their own solid perfume under the guidance of April and Mauricio.
