The Scarlet Sage Herb Co.: Introductory Natural Perfumery with Mauricio Garcia
May 26 @ 10:30 am - 2:00 pm
In this natural perfumery workshop, students will explore the foundations of fragrance structure, scent and material families, and the craft of natural perfume making with Mauricio Garcia of Herbcraft Perfumery.
Students will leave the class with an understanding of the differences between perfume mediums, fragrance materials, scent ideation and evaluation. After discussing and experiencing essential oils and absolutes from Mauricio’s workbench, students will design their own fragrance under the instructor’s guidance.
About the teacher:
Mauricio Garcia is a perfumer, creative director, certified aromatherapist and practitioner of traditional witchcraft based in San Francisco. His fascination with the botanical world began in his Abuela’s small, yet flourishing garden in foggy South San Francisco. Through Herbcraft Perfumery, Mauricio teaches classes on natural perfumery and medical aromatherapy, as well as formulates bespoke enchantments and fragrances for individuals and indie product lines. The union of the material and spirit worlds is the heart of Herbcraft— a crossroads of alchemy and spirit work. Mauricio also gives talks and workshops on ‘fragrant witchcraft,’ the use of botanical materials in magic and ritual, and the exploration of the relationship between practitioner, plant spirits and botanical geniuses.
