In the first part of this series, we described methods of selecting suitable candidates for perfumery training and how to test their abilities. This part is devoted to the preliminary training and testing of the trainee. This stage, usually three months long, should highlight the trainee’s abilities and decide the program for further training. The basic subjects of a preliminary training program are:

1. Recognition, differentiation and memorization of the basic components of fragrances, both natural and synthetic, according to basic groups of odors.

2. General study of the theory and methods to create fragrance compositions.
