Sick of smelling your stole a whole perfume counter or like your mother or worse your grandmother? Then make your own. Sometimes we just can’t find a scent that smells good with our chemistry or we just don’t enjoy the store bought smells.
By making your own, you don’t lose $50 and you can figure out what smells really great on you and doesn’t make you pass out!
If you know anything about perfumes which I did not, you know that the smell in a perfume is made up of a top note, middle note, and base note. So when you make it, that’s how you should approach, Use on of each. But really, and here is the best part, it’s your perfume so you can do whatever you want!
- Top Note: Is the first scent (like a first impression) that will fade the quickest.
- Middle Note: This is kind of like the melody. It is considered the heart of the perfume. It should last a few hours.
- Base Note: This is the anchor note and will last the longest
Now, get a bunch of essential oils. And make your perfume scent! Place a small amount of your oils into a clean jar in these parts.
- Orange, Jasmine, Sandalwood
- Lime, Rose and Vetiver
- Orange, Lavender, Ylang ylang
- Bergamot, Lemongrass, Sandalwood
- Bergamot, Rose, Jasmine, Sandalwood
- Lemongrass, Lime, Lavender, Vetiver
- Orange, Peppermint, Cedarwood
- Sweet Marjoram, Lavender, Ylang ylang
Personally I like Rose, Watermelon, Vanilla scent. The vanilla can be traded out because it doesn’t work but the watermelon is a great scent for perfume – but play! It’s your perfume!
