Join us for the final installment of this three-part series as we craft our own personal scent. During this interactive seminar, our instructor will guide us through the full process of creating a perfume. 

Together we will review the vocabulary of scents, how to classify fragrances in an olfactive group, how to combine essential oils and avoid terrible mistakes, and how to create olfactory facets and accords.

This conversation is part of a series. Each seminar can be joined independently and in any order.

A shopping list will be provided in due course.

The daughter of a French perfumer from the city of Grasse, the world's capital of fragrances, Professor Margaux Hofstedt forever associates scents with childhood memories: of her dad's scented fingers; of the fields of roses, jasmine, and tuberose surrounding her family home; of mysterious smells, like sandalwood, and patchouli, brought back from exotic countries. After graduating from the prestigious Higher Institute of Fragrances and Flavors ISIPCA in Versailles, an institution founded by renowned perfumer Jean-Jacques Guerlain, she dedicated her professional life to teaching and lecturing, sharing her passion with various audiences worldwide. She also created perfume-making workshops not only at The House of Fragonard but also at the European University of Flavors and Fragrances in Provence, opening the doors of a sensory journey for anyone interested in understanding the creation process. In addition, she is professor of Food Studies at the Institute for American Universities and the American College of the Mediterranean in Aix-en-Provence, France. Prof Hofstedt is bilingual in French and in English.

This conversation is suitable for all ages

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.
