The purpose of doing the exercises in this workbook is to familiarize yourself with the different blending capacities of essences that are similar to one another. Completing the exercises in this workbook will teach you how to study the aromatic facets of each essence. This training will help you develop your capacity to make more precise and aesthetically pleasing choices about which essences to include when you are creating a formula.

One composes not with families of aromas but with individual essences. First you need to evaluate, in practical terms, each individual odor profile, evolution, and intensity. This paves the way for studying how these individual essences interact in formulas and for developing the ability to predict and correct these interactions.

You never make anything in the Olfactory Training Workbook -- just smell essences and take notes. Hold onto this workbook forever as an ongoing reference manual and source notebook for blending.

This workbook includes the Aftelier Natural Perfume Wheel©.
