Leather Accord

hosted by Chiara Antoniacomi + Klara Ravat


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 us in this wonderful workshop to discover the history of the leather accord and its technical blending! We will smell some current perfumes in the market, analyze them, we will also evaluate the raw materials used for a leather accord in a cross-sensorial process, we will learn how to blend a standard leather accord, and last but not least, we will have time to experiment and make our own variations!

This workshop will be conducted by Chiara Antoniacomi, a fragrance evaluator at Symrise in Milan, who graduated from the Isipca European Fragrance and Cosmetic Master, and Klara Ravat, co-founder and director of the Smell Lab Berlin.

Chiara will guide us, connected via Zoom (all the way from Milano!!) through the fascinating history of leather perfumes, will help us smell and understand 3 archetype leather perfumes that are or have been in the market, and will guide us on the raw material evaluation.

Klara is going to be joining online from the Smell Lab premisses guiding you through the blending process and analyzing your self-made perfumes.

If you have been wanting to know everything about leather fragrances, this is your chance!

During this workshop we will:

+ Review the history of leather perfumes

+ Smell 3 archetype leather perfumes that have been or are on the market

+ Analyze and evaluate raw materials (natural and synthetics)

+ Make one to three standard leather accord (evaluating formulas)

+ Experimenting: make your accord variation!


You will leave the workshop with 2 bottles: one standard leather accord blend, and your very own variation!
