FORMULA FLIGHT: BUEN CAMINO EAU DE PARFUM
Formula Flights, a Chronotope original offering, are sets of select raw materials, diluted to IFRA-approved skin-safe levels but otherwise left wholly unadulterated, that I use in my finished perfumes. I kicked off this new offering with a Formula Flight for Spite Eau de Parfum. Now it's time for Buen Camino Eau de Parfum.
The Buen Camino EdP Formula Flight includes:
- Hinoki Wood Essential Oil
- Styrax Oleoresin Essential Oil
- Immortelle Absolute
- Clary Sage Essential Oil
The Salon will occur once, on Saturday, 17 July at 15:00 ET.
The Salon is not a time for me to deliver some sort of structured lecture or (worse) "class session." Instead, it is a chance for us to have a conversation about how any of these materials operates within the finished perfume, as well as an opportunity for attendees to ask questions about my process for everything from sourcing to blending, all as we recreate one of the major accords in the perfume using the materials and pipettes found in the Formula Flight.
Everyone is welcome to participate in what I already know, from having experienced it with the Spite EdP Salons, will be an exciting and fun opportunity to bring you closer not just to my own creative practice, but (so much more importantly!) to the wonderful materials that perfumers have the pleasure of working with each and every day.
This offering is not expressly or implicitly intended to be educational. I am a perfumer, not a teacher. But if we shoot an arrow and it goes real high—if you engage in this experiential option with the intention of learning something new, and if as a result you in fact do walk away from the experience with new knowledge—hooray for you and me both!
THE FINE PRINT:
All materials in the Formula Flights are diluted between .05% concentration in perfumer's alcohol and 2.5% concentration in perfumer's alcohol. While every one of these concentration levels are IFRA-compliant and skin-safe, it is an inherently different experience engaging with materials in isolation than it is to engage with them in a finished formula. By purchasing a Formula Flight, you agree to waive Chronotope LLC of any and all responsibility for outcomes incurred due to your use of the materials. Please use cautionary measures like skin patch tests or smelling the materials only on the supplied scent strips if you are prone to allergic reactions.
