"I love to work with students to help them progress with their dream of becoming a perfumer. The Independent Study Basic Course is for students who do not wish to participate online, or believe they may not finish the course in one year, or want a more economical tuition.

The textbook for the Independent Study Course is the same one that the Private Tutorial Basic Course students receive. The independent student will benefit from the various special and unique techniques that I teach as part of the basic course, and I am delighted to be able to provide them to you."
