We teamed up with Perfumer's Apprentice to offer a basic materials kit that provides some representative aromatics for people who are new to perfumery and want to get started.
This kit includes 25 materials in 4ml vials (undiluted except where noted). Retail cost is $100.00, plus shipping, but people who are signed up for one of our classes receive a 30% discount through Perfumers Apprentice. Just email us at hello @ artandolfaction.com and we'll tell you how!
Note that the 30% student discount applies to the kit only.

Get a lot of these: you'll go them like water.
You'll need these for decanting materials and more.
You need solvent to make lab solutions. Alcohol is easier and industry-standard, but many people prefer oil. Up to you!
Finally, you'll need small containers in which to make your trials!
The trick here is to make sure to get permanent labels, not the removable ones, or they will come off your bottles!
