The art of perfumery involves extracting and mixing oils and fluids from various natural elements to create the fragrances in perfume. While it may appear to be a simple task, on the contrary, the art of perfume making requires some knowledge of science, chemicals and measurement. This is particularly so for those who wish to pursue a career in the fragrance industry. Whether you are interested in perfumery as a hobby, or as a career, there are numerous in-class or distance learning perfumery schools that can get you started.
