Anya's Garden Natural Perfumery Institute - Fragrance Families and module objectives illustrated

Further refinement of the understanding of Fragrance Families - from Anya's Garden Natural Perfumery Institute Module 2 - Copyright All Rights Reserved

At the beginning of each module in the textbook, the students of Anya's Garden Natural Perfumery Institute's Basic Course  are given the objectives for the module.  I blogged a portion of the aromatic groups recently, and here I'm sharing a refinement of the fragrance family graphic in a way that places the fragrance families into the conventional scent pyramid.  In the textbook many more fragrance family iterations are explained, the above graphic is for summation purposes only.

Module 2 Objectives
At the completion of this module, you will be able to:
§       Name the categories of aromatics sources, and the components of each category.
§       Discuss the difference between organic, wildcrafted, conventional, and endangered sources of aromatics. 
§       Demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of what constitutes the scent profile of various aromatic groups.
§       Quickly, and with certainty, place a new aromatic that you are evaluating in the appropriate aromatic group(s).
§       Determine which fragrance family a perfume belongs to, either by reading a formula, or by looking at a list of the notes, or by smelling the perfume and using your nose and Scent Memory.
§       Conceptualize a perfume that you wish to create by focusing on a fragrance family and its characteristics for your selection of aromatics to develop that perfume. 
§       Understand how to use fragrance families for marketing purposes.
Note:  At the end of this module, you will find a blank copy of each of the forms, charts, and sheets that are used with this module.  These are also available as downloadable files on the course Web site.
