LEATHER ACCORD - PERFUME WORKSHOP
At Smell Lab, Berlin.
hosted by Chiara Antoniacomi
in collaboration with Smell Lab, Berlin.
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.
If you have been wanting to know everything about leather fragrances, this is your chance!
