Do perfumers and winemakers speak the same language?

This training course is led by Miss Carole ANDRE, Perfumer. It allows to discover the resemblances and the differences between the olfactory universes of the perfume and the wine.

It is also an opportunity to discover the olfactory heritage of some little or not well known grape varieties.

Carole André has a degree in organic chemistry and also the option ISIPCA perfumery. Teacher in perfumes and cosmetics, she created her company in November 2004 for training and services. Since that, she divides her time between the various schools and universities where she teaches both the formulation and olfaction and creativity and sensory analysis, and professional customers who want to develop new ranges or in need of supervision regulatory.

The working langage is English. The number of participants is limited to 10.
