Perfumery Course

As some of you have seen, I have offered a one-year intensive online Natural Botanical Perfumery course.

Here's how it works, as far as signing up and paying for the course:

You go here and click on the "pay now" button under the heading "Refundable Application Fee". The fee is $40 and if your application is accepted, you move onto the next phase of the application process -- the deposit. If your application is rejected, and it does happen some times, your $40 fee will be refunded to you.

The deposit is due as soon as your application has been approved. The deposit is $225 and it holds your spot in the class, guaranteeing your participation. The next step is paying the remainder, in which the application fee of $40 and deposit of $225 have been deducted, of $685 by the deadline date of April 20th. Your kits and work book will begin arriving shortly after, and should be in your possession by the start of the course on May 24th. You will also have access to the acad…

New Soap is Here! Cocoa Lavender Butter Handmade Soap

Cocoa Lavender Butter Handmade Soap at The Scented Djinn Etsy Apothecary.

New Soap Coming Soon!

This is a knock-off of a soap I've done for a distributor for years -- that soap was called Chocolate Lavender Apricot Vanilla, or CLAV for short, this soap is plain old Cocoa Lavender Butter Soap ~ delicious cocoa and lavender oils, swirls, copious lather (because it's packed with virgin coconut oil), and buttery because it's double packed with organic unrefined cocoa butter. It's just . . . well, you'll have to wait a while for it to finish curing.

I've temporarily shut down my website, for several reasons, one being the time and effort and success of the Etsy page for the same products ~ because of that (the shutting down part), I am now free to relist my two signature eaux de parfum, Serj and Oshiba on Etsy. I spent literally months (a year on Serj) perfecting the formulations for these two perfumes. If you're curious about what truly inspired, gorgeous and splendidly blended Natural Botanical Perfumes are all about, try Serj and/or Oshiba. They're being offered in 6 ml perfume bottles for $27 each, and in 9 ml Brosse made French flacons for $65 each. Supplies are limited on the French flacons. These would make lovely Valentine gifts as both are suitable for men and women to douse. I think you'll love them!
