    Default study Perfumery without the possession chemistry or university career

    I am really interested in this ¨kind¨ of courses.
    i have contact with Ipsica and Givaudan.

    Ipsica is only for Chemistry or Biology students
    Givaudan doesn´t accept people over 26 years old. I am 29


    Any other recommendations?
    I want to learn all about aroma chemicals and raw materials, but i don´t want to spend many money for that.

    I know Galimard parfumers from Grasse. i have contact them but they only have 3 days classes, which i imagine is not enough to learn deeply.

    sorry! if you find something, let me know. i would very seriously consider some proper education if i only knew something that suits me.
    i know very little about chemistry too, and i am 38.

    Jean Carles stated that if someone had a degree in chemistry, he would not accept them as a student. http://www.osmoz.com/News-Trends/Mag...-become-a-nose If you wish to become a corporate perfumer, then, yes, you will need some. If you wish to remain independent, an artisan, you will not. If you produce a line of creams, soaps and other couture perfumed items, you can hire a contract manufacturer, and they will have a chemist on staff to determine the pH, additives, etc., needed for commercial production. I know some basic, and I do mean basic chemistry, stuff about terpenes and such, and you can study that on your own. There are a number of self-study books that will assist your education about aroma chemicals, etc.
