Private lessons

There are several courses in Europe in the field of perfume making, usually they have the aim of making a fragrance, and it is mainly for fun. It is a joyous activity and we are happy to supply the raw materials for it, such as various fragrances.

These courses are in general not suitable if you want to dive a little deeper into the matter. Do you want to learn how a real perfume is made like you buy it in the perfumery? How to make a fragrance composition for your homemade soap, scented candles or room perfume? Then private perfume making lessons at De Hekserij might be an option.

Private lesson at De Hekserij

Private lessons are almost always tailor-made: we look at what you can, know and have done. We also take into account what you want to learn, what is the goal. It is therefore not the case that you follow a pre-cooked lesson program, we look at the wishes and the possibilities and adjust the program accordingly.

We do have a kind of standard program for real beginners: basic knowledge of fragrances, knowledge of fragrances, smelling, mixing.

Many advanced practitioners ask for help building chords and perfumes. Then there are more specialist requests: how do you perfume candles or soap? How do you make perfume for dogs? Which carriers can be used for room perfumes? How to make a natural musk perfume. We can often help, if we can’t, we are honest about it.

Every year there is limited space for new students, we only give private perfume making lessons in the period March to October, from the end of January it makes sense to make requests for the new season. In 2022: we hope to start lessons in march, of course, this depends on the further developments surrounding Covid-19.

The goal of our students is to acquire knowledge to use, we do not train you to a diploma, you do not receive a certificate. We are not a training institute, we simply share the knowledge we have. That is why we charge VAT for private lessons.
