Botanical Perfumery Class Ticket
We invite you to journey with us through the enchanting realm of scent. Aromatic botanicals have been revered across cultures throughout the ages as a portal through our emotions, desires, and dreams. Perfume has held a core place in our rituals, from those celebrated in ceremony to even the most intimate ones of our daily lives.
From medicine to magic, botanical essences have been a part of our lives for centuries. Engaging with them is akin to time travel, where we can smell and experience the same aromas our ancestors did, straight from the earth. Enveloping ourselves daily with the life force of botanicals through perfumery is one of the great pleasures of life, and engaging in the art of creating perfume is a reward in its own rite.
This class, taught by our Founder, Carole Addison-Goyne, will cover the foundation and the art of natural perfumery, based on Mandy Aftel's key concepts. We will explore the rich history and the elusive mystery of botanical essences as we also indulge our senses in exquisite, otherworldly aromas. We will experience beautiful aromatic rituals and then engage in a blending workshop where you will create your very own signature scent from a botanical perfumer’s organ of 18 key absolutes and essential oils.

Our Nomad Botanicals Founder, Carole, has been in the botanical perfumery and aromatherapy field for more than 25 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 a Natural Perfumery Certification with Mandy Aftel and is honored to share Mandy's legendary natural perfume concepts with you!
