I adore fragrances of all kinds (including Campbell’s tomato soup when you first open the can), but learning how to make them is something of a challenge. I attended Sniffapalooza in New York, fragrance workshops and the Art of Scent exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, and made a friend at International Flavors and Fragrances who invited me to come smell the amazing raw materials they work with. This was a great start, but I needed more. So… in the summer of 2013, I attended The Grasse Institute of Perfumery (GIP), a division of ASFO-Grasse. Here I learned about formulation, the use of naturals and synthetics, and spent all day long smelling, creating, and sharing reactions and ideas with others in the class. It was heaven. Fast forward 3 years, and here I am, recently back from The Art and Technology of Perfume workshop in New York, bringing the art of perfumery to Boston. Try a new BLUEHILL fragrance – I’m sure there’s one for you!
