The Secret World of Scent

Among LIM College’s dynamic course offerings is a unique, interactive class taught by international fragrance expert and “Scentrepreneur” Sue Phillips, who has created iconic fragrances for Avon, Burberry, Diane von Furstenberg, Lancôme, and Tiffany & Co.

In The Secret World of Scent, Phillips takes LIM students on a memorable "fragrance journey," with an in-depth look at marketing — including positioning, pricing, promotion and product development — as well as the creative and scientific development involved in becoming a perfumer.

Throughout the semester, students develop a business plan for a fragrance project and create their own unique fragrance. The class will also visit perfume labs and retailers.

The Secret World of Scent (FASH 2116-01) will meet on Mondays from 9:45 am – 12:55 pm during the Fall 2017 semester.
