NEW Isolates Unit at NNAPA

We have a new unit in the year long course starting in May.
Shelley Waddington is going to teach about Isolates.

The use of natural isolates is a new cutting edge trend in natural perfumery.
This course is designed to allow the perfume student to take advantage of this new trend by providing a basic understanding of what an isolate is, how it is produced, and how to incorporate isolates into their own perfume compositions. The student will also receive a comprehensive bibliography for personal reference.

Upon completion of this unit, the student will have a basic understanding of natural isolates and will be ready to begin blending using these fragrance materials.

A kit of natural isolates will be available at the store and is highly recommended for the course.

Shelly will preparing small kits for the course that will be sold in the NNAPA in-house store.
