The course workshop “Introduction to the world of perfume” is aimed at individuals who are interested and/or passionate about the world of perfume. The aim of the course is to offer very practical and applicable information to perfume lovers and users or anyone who simply wants to learn some of the useful aspects concerning the world of perfume.

During the course we will talk about the use of perfume and its development in history, the great importance of smell and odors for humans and animals in general, the types of perfumes that exist, the structure of a perfume and its olfactory families and the methods used to produce perfumes. We will also talk about the natural and synthetic components that are used to create a perfume and the difference between a commercial perfume and a niche perfume.  In addition we will explain the various techniques used to smell a perfume and how and where one should apply the perfume correctly to the body. Finally, during much of the workshop, we will put into practice the concepts covered.
