    I am not a wealthy man, and I love sharing my knowledge with other people.
    This first 3 weeks of lessons will be for various perfume enthusiasts in my life.
    People who absolutely love perfumery, and wish to learn more about it!

    Later, I will be running similar courses to supplement my income.
    I am a passionate perfumer, but I am not wealthy and this Weill help in the slow season.

    Be happy and healthy everyone!

    They will be live,
    But please understand.
    I’m order to take part, you will need to purchase the materials...
    This will cost you a couple hundred dollars.

    I will work with a supplier, to put a materials kit together for this Course.

    Wow! This is interesting.
    When you say a couple hundred dollars, what price range is in mind? $2-300?

    Also, can this same knowledge be transferred into attar making?

    I have yet to calculate material costs, but I will definitely try to keep them low, and even attempt to get you guys a discount....

    The same principles hold true for blending with oil, or blending in alcohol. So yet home crafted “attars,” (As opposed to those made in the traditional method in India)... are designed in the same manner as all perfumes.

    yes, blending in oils or with alcohol holds the same materials and same design principles. 95% cross over.

    I'm interested but I don't think I would be able to attend live sessions due to my schedule and time zone difference. :oops:
    I wish everyone get a great time learning perfumery. :praying:

    Yes of course, it likely will not start until February 2021
    I will carry on with it, and we will do it. But the materials may cost about $1000 so be sure to save your pennies.
    I look forward to meeting all of you guys in class.

    Mr.P Evoloudtionary Bioudlogist

    Wait... to do the free class it is necessary to buy $1000 of essential oils from you?

    mattmeleg Oud Fanatic

    Absolutely not!
    Haha, I wouldn't do something that obviously classless and stupid.
    (it's not just essential oils, you need synthetic materials as well)

    What I'm going to do is this;
    I will contact one of my suppliers,
    tell them the materials you will need to study with,
    And see if they can put a collection, a "study set," together...
    I will also encourage them to give you guys a discount.
    I don't have oils for sale.

    Don't worry, I'm not trying to shamelessly try to make some extra money this way.
    the reason I am offering you guys a free course, is 2 reasons
    1). I wish to make connections with you guys, because I know many members here really know a lot about oud
    1). I must practice my teaching skills before I start charing people money! So you guys are my Guinne Pigs!

    do you know of any local perfume suppliers?
    I know some in North America and Europe...

    Taesik Yun True Ouddict Staff Member

    I don't know. I just googled a bit but the search result only showed me companies that make synthetic clone copies fragrances. I don't expect I, you could find genuine suppliers in my place because the fragrance market itself is very small here. Pretty much expected this.
