PART 2 – Signature Fragrance Making
Zaga is a gem! She is knowledgeable, passionate about perfumery and with a sense of motivation that is quite infectious. Following the perfumery workshop, I am now developing my own scents. I even booked a second workshop to delve deeper.
Zaga is warm, welcoming and, above all, very knowledgeable in what she does. I’m sure what she has taught me in a relatively short space of time is going to help me avoid alot of the mistakes I probably would have made without her guidance. I am looking forward to putting into practice what I have learnt
I started this course as a complete novice but with loads of ideas of what I wanted to achieve. Zaga is a magnificent perfumer and teacher who I highly recommend. During my course she took me through the wonderful world of perfume and helped me with lots of practical advice to create my own. I split my online Skype course into two segments over two days and finished feeling confident and inspired to accomplish my goals. I also recommend buying the miniature perfumers organ, a great tool for small scale early experiments and learning.
