Perfume making course
Our perfume making course in Florence takes place in a historic perfumery workshop in the center of the city. The workshop started in 1700 and it is one of the oldest in town.
Here you will use only traditional natural products for the creation of your personal scent. Discover the luxury of tailor made perfumes.
The teacher, chemist and herbalist, offers this course since 1993 with the aim to train olfactory talents. The workshop offers you the opportunity to get involved in an economic and social context. You can attend the perfumery course either just for hobby or for a professional carrer as perfumer.
Perfumery courses are in groups or one to one and held from Monday to Friday. The teacher is a professional perfumer, and lessons are held in Italian. A translation service is available.
The basic programme of the perfume making course in Florence includes:
- Aspects of the History of Perfume.
- The study of Fougere accord, Cyprè Accord, Citrus accord, Amber accord, Floral Accord and Wood accord.
You will learn how to use the materials, compare preparations, what are fixatives and what are the solubilizers.

The teacher will give you outlines on olfactory marketing too.
