Today, I will tell you how to create a perfume in two easy steps. But before that: I wish you a great start into your week! Mine started perfectly. Today, I will finish labelling air du désert marocain flacons in the factory, and will start packing them. While doing so, I often get bored and very often end up playing with pencils and pick as motive what is around. The Tauer flacon is actually a good drawing exercise….
The drawing exercises made me think about how to break down perfume creation and how to teach perfume creation.
About drawing exercises: You probably know these books “how to draw a (horse, cat, face, dog,…) in 2 easy steps”. For instance that easy two steps instruction for a face:
Step 1: Start with an “8” and dissect following some rules for the eyes and nose and stuff.
Step 2: Add details
… and there you are.
Thus, here’s my two step instruction how to create a perfect perfume in two easy steps.
Step 1: Draw a triangle like in the picture below. Pick three adjectives that describe each stage of the perfume’s development. Write them down.
Step 2: Add details.
