International shipping

We ship internationally and to most countries worldwide (with the exception of a few countries). Due to shipping flammable perfume products, some countries may show a higher shipping fee. Enter your country at checkout to check whether we can send to your country.

Where is my kit and equipment?

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, the transit time may take a few days, so for international shipping, we advise to leave 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.

Do I have to have the ingredients and material to do the course?

Yes! The Creation Course Chapter 3 comes with 2 boxes of ingredients and perfumery equipment which includes 250ml of perfume ingredients. The set contains a high enough quantity for you to work on your formulae several times.

You may want to reorder more ingredients from the previous chapters. Find more on the Student Shop. 

Can I start without 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.

Can I start the course at any time?

Yes. The course is pre-recorded and you can start when you like once you have received your kit. You’ll have one year access to the video course leaving you plenty of time to complete the course.

How long is the course?

Allow a minimum of 3 weeks for the 3  modules + bonus lessons to be released on a weekly basis. 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. However, it can take you longer to complete the course. Rest assured, you can go through the course at your own pace within your 1 year access to the video course.

How long the course is available for?

The streaming access to the video course is available for one year from the date of purchase. You will be able to keep the downloadable tutorials but you will not be able to download the videos which are streaming only. You can also stay in the students discussion group as long as you’d like.

Will I have access to an instructor?

No. The course is designed to be self-explanatory and is very detailed so that you should not need access to an instructor as you go through it. However we do post occasional Q&As videos with our instructors and live sessions on our students discussion group so this is your opportunity to ask any questions you’d like that are relevant to the course content.

Can I skip the Foundation Chapter and Chapter 2?

Unfortunately no. Each chapter of the Fundamentals of perfume creation programme builds on the previous Chapter and so the knowledge and material acquired before end is essential to follow this final chapter. Learn more about the online programme.

Will I get a certificate?

Yes! We offer a certificate with the CPD programme (Continuous Programme Development). At the end of the course, you can take a test (optional) and if you pass, you’ll receive your downloadable certificate.

Do I become a perfumer once completing the course?

(Un)fortunately not! But you are getting closer!

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 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.

Can I get a refund?

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!
