One of the five main fragrance families, the chypre (pronounced ‘shee-pre’) takes its name from Francois Coty’s 1917 perfume of the same name, although the style itself is far older. Chypre perfumes are generally characterised by a haunting contrast between a fresh, citrus top and a woody/mossy base. Some great chypre perfumes include Mitsouko (Guerlain), Femme (Rochas), Caleche (Hermes), Miss Dior (Dior), No 19, Pour Monsieur, and 31 Rue Cambon (Chanel).

In this workshop, we’ll look briefly at the history of the chypre then concentrate on the natural aromatics that are typically used in creating these fragrances. You will have the opportunity to explore blending accords and make your own chypre perfume to take home. This class builds on the material covered in Introduction to Natural Perfumery, although it is not necessary to have done this workshop to participate.

Materials Included. Please bring a notebook to make notes.
Class: 10 max.
