Cinquieme Sens Olfactory Training : For Professionals and Perfume Fans


Founded in Paris in 1976, Cinquième Sens (which means Fifth Sense in French) is offering an opportunity to learn about fragrance through series of workshops and training programs designed for the professional and the fragrance fan alike. The sessions range from 1 day to a year and can be tailored to reflect your specific needs. The best part is that unlike most programs of this nature, Cinquième Sens training sessions will be available in New York, from the Cinquième Sens Madison office. The topics that the sessions cover range from Olfactory Perfection (study of the main raw materials in each family,) A Century of Women’s/Men’s Fragrances, Study of the Top 20 launches, Formulation Workshop, among many others.
