About the Course
Did you know that leather is one of the earliest notes in perfumery? Rooted in the tradition of the 16th-century Parisian glove makers, and their tradition of perfuming and re-odorizing the gloves with musks and oils to mask the scent of animal skin, this is how our present notion of the smell of leather was created.
Join in for this wonderful workshop to discover the history of the leather accord and its technical blending! You will smell some current perfumes in the market, analyze them, you will also evaluate the raw materials used for a leather accord in a cross-sensorial process, you will learn how to blend a standard leather accord, and last but not least, you will have time to experiment and make our own variations!
This workshop will be conducted by Klara Ravat, co-founder and director of the Smell Lab Berlin.
If you have been wanting to know everything about leather fragrances, this is your chance!
You will leave the workshop with 2 bottles: one standard leather accord blend, and your very own variation!
