    You might ask Alex Lee via his very interesting blog, I Love Perfume. He writes about fragrance and about the perfumery program that he's going through at present, and he knows a lot about this stuff.

    Most likely they are in Grasse or somewhere around there, because that's were the perfume industry is centered

    L'Université de Lyon (2) has a department on olfaction.They have also published studies on scent perception, neuro-biologic influences with perfumes among them. To my knowledge, there is no National (French) school at a level of a university. New perfumers are mainly trained by the 6 industrial giants, like Givaudan, Firmenich, Symrise, etc. Some of the greatest modern perfumers got their training at those houses or worked there during earlier years of their professional lives. One of those schools is in fact in Grasse. I forgot who is funding it. Forget 'most prestigious' schools or universities because there aren't many to choose from. Those who can file an application with one of them successfully are the (few!) lucky ones!

    How about the ISIPCA in Versailles?

    I keep hearing about the "Saint Saens School of Perfumery" - is this an actual school or what ?

    Narcus, perhaps you mean Prodarom's ASFO-Grasse:

    As for the other ones you mentioned, I know that Givaudan's school is in Argenteuil
    http://www.givaudan.com/givcom/v/ind...extfmt=default

    and Symrise has a training academy as well, but like you said, these are in-house training/apprentice programmes

    Yes, I think it's ASFO-Grasse. Thanks for adding all the links, Marcello!
    Someone may really appreciate being a big step further.
