First Day of Classes

My finished bottle of perfume :)

Hi everyone!
I have begun another exciting adventure at FIT. Monday was the first day of my Cosmetics and Fragrance class and let me just say I am already in love! The way this class is being run is that each week we get a new professor for three weeks. The first week my Professor has a degree in working with fragrances, the second week my professor has a degree in the marketing and management aspect of the beauty industry and the last week my professor has a degree in cosmetic design. I am really excited to get an inside look at what really goes on in the beauty industry.

Walking into this class I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but on our first day we were able to make a perfume! It was so cool! We got to pick the scent and color we wanted it to be so my partner and I decided we wanted a fruity smelling pink perfume. We mixed together specific amounts of the scent, color, distilled water, perfume oils and alcohol. Personally I think our perfume came out great.

I think one of the great things about this class is that it is really hands on rather than having  a class that is only a lecture for three hours. I really enjoy learning how to make products and how each product was developed. If you are into the beauty industry I would recommend you take this class if you have the opportunity it was only my first day and I am already having so much fun!

Until next time,

Nicole
