This is why I have the chance  and honor to be respected by high hand professionals. Preserving the quality at every stage of my work from education to plant production process and blending exclusive formula is my ethic. Join me now and you will learn my experts do's and dont's. 


Do you still question yourself if this program is really for you ?

As a natural perfumer, you will learn all the olfactory aspects of essential oils, absolutes and more. However, there is important information to know and these are the fundamental bases of essential oils, what they really are, their precautions for use, how to use them and especially combine them with each other.

Because some do not match well and when you create a natural perfume, you can use dozens of essential oils and it can become a real toxic cocktail if you do not know them.

I have been an aromatherapist for nearly 25 years and the 1st certified natural perfumer in France. It is this experience that I will share with you throughout the program.

This program is very different from a book on essential oils because the pedagogy on which this program is built ensures that you easily assimilate rich information which can be easily complex.

This program is based on 25 years of experience in a firm but above all in teaching in professional schools in France & the United States, workshops offered to the public. This experience makes it possible to provide appropriate information and not just academic or theoretical. The goal is for you to become independent!

You can totally follow this program and you will not get lost in the classroom! On the contrary, you are guided step by step in this learning in a pedagogical way. Also, I am there anytime for your questions.

You will certainly learn things that you do not know because the information in this program is certainly academic, practical and above all comes from 25 years of field experiences as a therapist and teacher.

Of course. You will obviously have to stay within a legislative framework if you are a professional because you cannot diagnose and provide medical advice. You can also recommend essential oils and blends while respecting this framework.
