Important notes about shipping:

We ship to the UK and within Europe for free. Visit the Advanced 6-week Perfume Creation Course for international shipping options outside Europe. 

This course focuses on the study of perfumery ingredients and while it’s an essential part to understand how you can compose with them, we do not teach about perfume formulation and creation in this course. Please join the Advanced 6-week Perfume Creation Course to learn how to create at home.

We send all the materials to follow this course within two working days of your order. We ship your package with priority  shipping and require a signature so you can track your package with the number we have sent you. However, it does take time to prepare the materials and for international shipping it may take up to 2 weeks to arrive at your home (depending on the country). Please allow a minimum of one week to receive your ingredients and material.

Yes! The Ingredient Course comes with 2 boxes of ingredients which includes 350ml of perfume ingredients.

However, if you have bought our ingredient box sets from us in the past, please get in touch and we can discuss how we would give you access to the e-learning without sending the ingredients.

This course will come to life with the ingredients and the equipment! You need to smell and learn with us as you watch the videos to truly learn. We do not recommend you start the course before receiving your ingredient boxes. Please note it can take between 1 and 2 weeks to receive your material at home.

This course does not come with an official certificate as we do not study blending and fragrance creation.

We ship this course only to the UK and Europe, free of charge.

If you are an international customer leaving outside Europe, please look at our Creation Course which we ship to most countries worldwide for a nominal fee of £50. 

Yes you can! The 2-week Ingredient Course is the same first two weeks of the 6-week Perfume Creation Course. If you wish to upgrade at the end of your Ingredient Course to complete the full Creation Course, you’ll have the opportunity to do so for an additional £400 + shipping cost (during Stay Home period – discounted period) or £700+ shipping cost outside discounted period.

We hope you’ll love the course so much that you will not want a refund! But if you do, unfortunately we regret to inform you that our online courses are non-refundable!
