Our Nomad Botanicals Founder, Carole, has been in the botanical perfumery and aromatherapy field for 30 years. Early on, she set off to become a perfumer after being inspired by one of her original mentors, Meg DeWeese. She studied chemistry in preparation for her dream of attending the prestigious perfume school, ISIPCA in Versailles. After visiting the school and delving deeper into the field, Carole discovered that while she was enticed by the romance of becoming an official "Nose" by following a traditional perfumery path, her true passion existed in the world of botanical essences vs. synthetic ones. Carole embraced this change of direction and was fortunate to study with world renowned mentors along her path. She apprenticed and worked with Kurt Schnaubelt for years and eventually taught aromatherapy certification classes with him. Carole was also influenced by the pioneering botanical legacy of Horst Rechelbacher during her 15-year tenure as an executive with Aveda. She has journeyed through multiple Slow Scent® Natural Perfumery Certifications with Mandy Aftel and is honored to share Mandy's legendary natural perfume concepts with you!
