Four Hour Accords: Tuberose

Alert! This event has already happened


Join independent perfumer and frequent IAO collaborator Ashley Eden Kessler as she leads us through the structure of the tuberose accord, in the latest of her hands-on accord-building classes.

For perfumers looking to expand their technical prowess, Ashley Eden Kessler shares her professional training as she leads students through classic accord structures. We will be continuing our journey through the pantheon of materials with an exploration of the sophisticated tuberose.
By attending this class, an emerging perfumer will expand their capabilities and training, and gain the materials knowledge to add the classic accord staples to their arsenal.

Students will spend several hours as a group training their noses, as Ashley leads a thorough study of the molecular components of tuberose. Then, as a class, we will blend sample accords, learn how to evaluate our formulas, and then spend plenty of hands-on time creating our own formulations. At the end of the day, students will leave with their own best possible formula, as well as a deeper understanding of the artistry and science behind perfumery.
This class is for people at all levels, but some basic understanding of perfumery is recommended. We recommend attending an open session before attending this class.
We will take a one hour lunch break. The class is limited to ten people.
