Join Me Karen Gilbert & The Team from Perfumersworld to...
Fast Track Your Perfumery Skills In Just 3 Weeks & Get Your Perfume Line Launched!
So You Want To Make Perfume....
But You Really Need HANDS ON HELP From Industry Experts
There is so much conflicting information out there its hard to know where you are going wrong.

Yes there are loads of resources online such as forums and Facebook groups but how do you know if what people are saying is right.

The problem with perfumery is that it is as much an art as a science and that means there are many "artists" with their own agendas and opinions and even innocent questions can be met with heated debate.

Nobody has time for that right!
Add in the myths perpetuated by the fragrance industry ...
"YOU CAN’T BE A PERFUMER UNLESS YOU ARE ONE OF THE FEW “CHOSEN” BY THE INDUSTRY PERFUMERY SCHOOLS"

And......

"IT TAKES 10 YEARS, YOU NEED A CHEMISTRY DEGREE & GO TO AN INDUSTRY ACCREDITED SCHOOL"

It's no wonder people give up before they start.
When I first met Steve and the team at Perfumersworld, I was blown away by their mission to get rid of these old myths once and for all!
We were on the same page with inspiring and empowering people to become perfumers and create their own brands. 

In a no fluff down to earth way with no withholding of information that is so common in the industry.

So in 2012 I asked them to run a class in the UK
And they did................In fact 2019 with be our 8th Year!
Hi, I'm Karen Gilbert
That's me in the middle, with Ryan & Steve from Perfumersworld and our super talented class of 2018.

Over the years I've trained a huge variety of people from all walks of life in fragrance creation. From buyers for huge brands, fragrance professionals, retail staff, bloggers, journalists, small business owners, aromatherapists, herbalists, fashion designers, artists, accountants and the odd neuroscientist - most were complete newbies to perfumery.

Every year I partner with Perfumersworld to bring their AMAZING training course to the UK.

There really is no faster way to get practical perfumery training that cuts through the fluff and gets YOU making pro fragrances right away.
Imagine What It Would Be Like To Create Your Own Fragrances With Ease?
Perhaps you have a product line already and you're struggling to get the scent right.

Perhaps you want to start a business and launch a fragrance line.

You want to make sure you are doing it right and that your perfumes are both beautiful AND safe

But most of all you want to be able to get INSTANT FEEDBACK on your perfumes

AND

Get to experience creating perfumes with 100's of professional grade materials
The best way to really learn perfumery is to throw yourself in and start making right away but that's a challenge for most people as there are so many materials to learn and experience.

Unless you have tens of thousands of $$ you can't buy them all.

This is just one reason why practical classes are so valuable - you get to sniff and blend from someone else's materials stash!  (we had over 800 materials to choose from at the last class)
How Would It Feel To Walk Away With A Prototype Product Line?
After we have covered the main theory in week one and you've got some formulating under your belt you will get to develop a complete fragrance or fragranced product line from start to finish.

This is a fabulous opportunity to learn how your scent works in different product types and get tutor feedback on your scent AND your concept.

Here's a taster of what past students have created during Weeks 2& 3 of the course:
Many of our students have gone on to create their own product lines or create bespoke fragrance for private clients in a fraction of the time it would have taken on their own.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE COURSE

 I just completed the 5-day Intensive Course - The Art and Technology of Perfumery at University of Winchester, UK. The course was soooo good. I’m so impressed with you guys. Thank you so much to Steve, Ryan and Karen for sharing your knowledge and experience. You guys are awesome and knowledgeable. I’ve gained a lot of information, not only the basic thing of perfumery, the chemical compound, the art of perfumery, but also the tips and the blending of perfume after attending this class. I’m so amazed with the participants that came from all around the world. Thank you so much to all who made our classes were so interactive. For those who are still looking for a perfumery course, this one should be in your first list!
Yati, Malaysia
Having just finished the foundation plus course I want to encourage others who are new or experienced in perfumery to attend this course. The trainers are extremely knowledgeable and very adept at translating some of the more technical aspects of perfumery into everyday concepts. I feel I have learnt in 5 full days what would have taken me years to figure out alone. The trainers Steven, Ryan, Karen and Tom could not have been more generous with their time and knowledge. A very well structured course giving a wealth of information in a practical and enjoyable way. Thank you so much guys!
Natasha Louise
Wonderful course! Highly recommended!!! I did the 5 day foundation plus workshop in UK. Well structured course for anyone with passion for perfumery, easy to follow even for the person like me with no previous knowledge or experience in perfumery. Steven, Ryan and Tom were very knowledgeable and helpful. I feel that I learned so much in a space of one week. This course is worth every penny and will give you a good idea about perfume development and how to get started in perfumery business.
Lenka Ronnoco
I couldn’t recommend the Foundation Plus Course highly enough. It’s a comprehensive foundation in the principles of formulating perfumes. Just the right balance of technical, practical and creative input. There was an ‘aha’ moment for me each day when I learnt something truly revelatory. The course price is worth it for the software alone. Steve, Ryan, Karen and Tom were all incredibly approachable and helpful. Thank you, I will certainly be back for more!
Charlie Emma
I attended The Art and Technology of Perfumery course this July in the New Forest, UK. It was a fascinating week full of knowledge and passion for perfume. I cannot recommend this course enough. Steve, Ryan and the crew are wonderful to learn from. Thank you to PW.
Sarah Lou
Thank you Team Perfumers World for a highly informative, fun and well structured course. I have enjoyed every moment of this last 5 days. Your class has given me the boost and confidence to realise what I need to do. Getting my Intention right and to continue playing. Thank you so much.
Madhvi Patel
I'm a complete beginner, will it be too advanced?
The course is designed for all experience levels. It is very intensive so be prepared to LEARN A LOT if you have never studied perfumery before.
I'm a more advanced, will it be too basic?
The course is designed for all experience levels. We have people with many years of experience who attend the courses and always learn something new. Fragrance houses regularly send their staff to this training to improve their skills.
I just want to make natural perfume, is this course for me?
The basics of perfumery that you will learn are the same for both naturals and synthetics. Whether you want to create 100% natural perfumes or commercial fragrances using aroma chemicals this course is for you. A large percentage of our students have natural perfume businesses. 
Will we learn about all types of fragrance materials or just the ones made by Perfumersworld? 
The materials you will learn during the Foundation course AND the Professional Level training are the same as those used throughout the industry (naturals, aromachemicals, industry wide perfumers bases) PLUS the addition of Perfumersworld's own Fleuressence proprietary bases. At the last count we had over 800 materials for you to use. Please note: The training IS NOT just centered around the Fleuressence bases as I have seen inaccurately stated on some perfume forums. These are used in the basic training to explain the classification system and will be available for you to use if you wish, however the training is designed to give you an in depth knowledge of as many materials as possible that you will also find from other suppliers in the industry.
Can I pay in instalments?
Sorry you're too late - the course is fast approaching and we are now only accepting payment in full
Do I get a certificate?
Once you have completed the course Perfumersworld will send you a certificate of completion.
Where can I stay?
Accommodation is not included but there are plenty of B&B's and hotels in the area (early booking advised) PLUS there is some basic student accommodation on campus for those on a limited budget please contact kathy@karengilbert.co.uk and she will put you in touch with the university accommodation officer
