About the Event

One of the cornerstones of Cinag's Alchemic has always been aroma- from Day One, I have worked to create unique, botanical fragrances that are 100% original. The process is by far one of my favorite aspects of the work I do through Cinag's Alchemic. In conversations, I've come to realize that the art of crafting botanical perfumes is one that seems so very esoteric. I started the Introduction to Botanical Perfume Crafting Series to help demystify the basics of building and layering single scents, to achieve a true work of art. The online workshops are held on Zoom, once per season. You can elect to take the full series, and meet all of the different aromas that are covered, or choose the workshops "a la carte". 

Workshops include all PDF worksheets and PDF starting formula sheets!

In the "Introduction to Basics" session, you will build a basic groundwork for understanding what fragrance is, and how to use it responsibly. This will be a lecture format. I will be discussing:

  • history of fragrances
  • the difference between natural and synthetic fragrances
  • how different natural fragrance components are created
  • discuss the evolution of the fragrance industry
  • discuss IFRA and safety concerns

The "Herbal Aromas Workshop" is a hands-on session that will introduce you to five easy-to-access essential oils in the aromatic family: Armoise, Lavender, Peppermint, Rosemary, and Sage. You'll begin building your own vocabulary to describe scent in a way that is personal to you. This is also where you will build your very first botanical creation!

The "Citrus Aromas Workshop" is a hands-on session that will introduce you to fice common citrus components: Bergamot, Cistus, Grapefruit, Lemongrass, and Sweet Orange. You'll continue to build on your vocabulary to describe scents, and will build your own citrusy fragrance! We'll also discuss considerations to keep in mind when working with citrus essential oils in fragrances. **You have the option to acquire the supplies on your own, or purchase the Add-On Bundle, and have the Workshop supplies shipped directly to you!

The "Floral Aromas Workshop" is a hands-on session that will introduce you to six members of the floral family: Geranium, Jasmine Sambac, Nerolina, Roman Chamomile, Rose, and Ylang Ylang. In addition to increasing your scent vocabulary, you will learn how to "stretch" a more precious essential oil or absolute, with a less costly complementary component. You will also blend your own unique floral creation!
