What Our Students Say
This is well deserved 5 stars experience! By the time I write it, I have been at EPC twice already. They really know their job here and share their best to guide you.
Loved the experience. It was a good mix of theory and practice (and fun!). It as a lot of information to take, but I didn’t find it overwhelming and I think it is perfect for anybody.
Incredible experience to get to see first hand the making of a perfume. Very educational and fun. I would highly recommend it!

Important notes about shipping:
We ship internationally (with the exception of a few countries). However, please note we are shipping perfume products which are flammable and therefore come with a high shipping fee.
Shipping in the UK and Europe is free. However, for shipment outside Europe, we’ll ask you to pay an additional nominal shipping fee of £50 to cover part of the shipping cost (costing between £100-£150 depending on the country).
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 Creation Course comes with 4 boxes of ingredients and perfumery equipment which includes 500ml of perfume ingredients. The set contains a high enough quantity for you to work on your formulas several times.
If you are an experienced perfume maker and can show us you have a full library of ingredient at homes, please get in touch to discuss possible access to the digital content only.
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.
Yes. The course is pre-recorded and you can start when you like once you have received your kit.
We say 6 weeks but it is more 6 modules. We release a new module each week so it leaves you the time needed to complete the lessons, train your nose and complete the exercises. It can take you twice as long to complete the course or even longer. But rest assured, you can go through it at your own rhythm!
We are working on it!
We ship to most countries but not all of them – enter your address at checkout to see whether we ship to your country. UK and Europe are free of charge. However, there are countries where we cannot ship perfume products to and therefore we regret that the course will not be available to you.
Perfume products fall under a category of products which are considered hazardous to ship by air and therefore come with an increased shipping cost (up to £150 shipping cost for international shipment outside Europe). We still want this course to be available to most and we therefore do ask for a nominal shipping fee of £50 for shipments outside Europe to cover part of this cost.
Becoming a perfumer comes with a long training in a school or within a perfume house (at least a year), but mostly from practising! It’ll take you months or even years to hone and master the practise you have learnt during this course. A perfumer only becomes a perfumer when he/she has a few years of industry experience behind him/her. But do not despair. If becoming a perfumer is your goal in life, then there is no reasons why you cannot put the hours and dedication behind your passion and become one!
This course will be an excellent starting point for your journey into perfumery, whether it’s for a hobby or for professional purpose. But we cannot do the hard work for you 😉
We hope you’ll love the course so much that you will not want a refund! But if you do, unfortunately we regret to let you know our online courses are non-refundable!
