Spices, Citrus, Woods, Rose, Orange Blossom, Iris : New Classes

Update: The interest in the new classes has been overwhelming, and all six seminars are now fully booked. I appreciate your enthusiasm and support. If you are interested in the Bois de Jasmin classes, please subscribe to our newsletter to be notified of new dates and topics. Of course, if you are interested in a particular class or topic, please send me a note.

New Bois de Jasmin online classes are now available for enrollment in 2022. I am continuing the popular Spices, Citrus, and Dark Woods series. I will also add three new classes focusing on florals: Rose, Orange Blossom, and Iris.

About Bois de Jasmin classes: These classes are for students of all levels of interest in perfumery. The classes teach you how to smell like a professional perfumer, take apart complex scents, and sharpen your sense of smell. Together we will study the fundamental classes of perfume materials and discover how they are used in perfumes. The lectures are designed to improve your enjoyment and appreciation of scents.

Class structure: 1h 15min. Small-group, interactive classes.

Having completed several classes, I listened to your suggestions and made a few changes. Originally, the classes were 1 hour and I set aside 15 minutes for questions. Many felt that 1 hour was not enough and wanted more guided exercises, so the lecture + exercise portion will be 1 hour and 15 minutes. We have time in between exercises for questions, and I’m always available to answer your questions afterwards.

Another change is that I suggest to bring perfumes to each class. I will give you a couple of suggested fragrances, but you can always use any suitable perfume from your own collection. We will still continue using readily available spices and fragrant materials for our smelling exercises, such as spices, coffee, or citrus fruit. You do not need to buy essential oil kits for these classes. You’ll receive the full instructions before the start of the class and after finishing the class you will also receive a list of fragrances to try based on the lecture theme.

  • elke: One question/suggestion: If you know already which perfumes you would use in each class, could you list those? This could be helpful if someone wanted to make sure they had most of the perfumes (and they might choose which class to take that way). Thanks! January 10, 2022 at 12:26pm Reply

    • Victoria: For these classes, you can use any perfume from your collection with the notes that fit the theme of the class. It doesn’t have to be one specific perfume. January 10, 2022 at 12:32pm Reply

  • CC: More dates pls, these sell out so quickly 🙁 January 10, 2022 at 8:09pm Reply

    • Victoria: If there is more interest, I’ll add more dates later in February. Are there classes that you wanted in particular? January 11, 2022 at 2:34am Reply

  • WARA: Dearest BDJ community….just wanted to share information about a new perfume house based on the culture and products of South Korea: ELOREA is the name and the perfumes are 170.00 but they have a sample box of the products for 30.00. Sorry, this is not the topic of this thread….did not know where to put it, since I have not visited in a while. All my best. January 12, 2022 at 6:47pm Reply
