The Flavor Apprentice
The Perfumer’s Apprentice began in 2004, as a little shop in a Santa Cruz loft. It was a place where people could learn about perfumery and chemistry through workshops and classes, and experiment with a myriad of fragrance ingredients. From that cozy beginning we’ve grown organically and quickly into an informative and dependable online source for a wide variety of aromatic applications. We’ve even begun supplying culinarians with a great selection of concentrated flavor liquids. We’re also a storefront for the John Steele Company’s famous selection of natural essential oils, absolutes, and attars.
Because the perfumery items are not recommended for any internal use, we’ve separated our page into two main sections: “The Perfumer’s Apprentice” and “The Flavor Apprentice”. These are both organized by the same team of people, and orders can include any combination of flavors and perfume items!
