    Question Jean Carles Charts?

    I've read that perfumer Jean Carles created charts of contrasting/similar scents for his students to study for their olfactory training. I found a simplified chart online in an aromatherapy book, but does anyone know of a location for the full charts?

    Thanks --

    The original charts can be found in the book Perfume by William Kaufman. It's out of print but can be found used online at places like amazon. I greatly edited and updated the chart for my online class. I describe 24 aromatic families, all natural aromatics. Then you have to learn - or be taught - how to conduct the comparison and contrast studies. After you know the aromatics by conducting organoleptic studies. Backwards engineering, as it were.

    Last year I reproduced the charts as printed in the Kaufman book, and saved them in PDF format (two documents). If you're interested, drop me a PM with your e-mail address.
