Phoebe Tan, our Diploma in Perfumery and Cosmetic Science (DPCS) alumna has recently graduated from the prestigious London College of Fashion (LCF)’s unique Masters in Cosmetic Science programme.
Her interest in fragrances started from a young age, following her mother’s love for perfumes. Her learning about organic chemistry and its molecular relationship in Riverside secondary school opened her eyes to the world of perfumery and she continued to pursue her passion in SP’s unique DPCS course. After graduating and working for a year, she chanced upon an opportunity to be fast tracked into LCF’s Masters course via a direct entry programme that is available for SP DPCS graduates. She then found herself in London within a month!
“I was able to put my DPCS training to good use during my time in LCF, such as research, presentation and report writing skills! All these really helped when I was working on my thesis. My Final Year Project was also nominated for the Promotion Award 2018 of the German Society of Perfumers in the SEPAWA (Soap, Perfume, Cosmetic and Detergent Experts Association) which was a big acknowledgement,” shares Phoebe.
Phoebe is now a perfume specialist at Waft Perfume, evaluating fragrances and taking on a consultant role by providing fragrance expertise and knowledge. She is also working hard to build her mini lab at home to bring her one step closer to her goal of being a renowned perfumer and eventually create her own fragrance!
