I made a batch of perfume yesterday. A truly lovely floral blend that lasted more than four hours on my skin. With Tangerine as a top note, it’s an uplifting and cheerful scent. The soft and water floral middle notes make it a light and sweet. I didn’t get a nose full of it at its base note phase, but the other notes make it very light. I took a photo with my smartphone, but it was pretty bad. so no photo for now.
- Top Notes: Tangerine, Sap, Reseda Plant
- Middle Notes: Wild Rose, Red Cyclamen, Peach Blossom, Blue Hyacinth, Iris, Nectar
- Base Notes: Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Musk
It’s a version of Burberry weekend, I didn’t hand blend the fine fragrance but I’m happy with the essence of perfume I made with it. I sold one, gave some away as a gift, and kept about an ounce of it to reflect on in the future.
I used the formula here.
Be sure to use a glass bottle to prevent the scent from evaporating. Plastic is more porous and will allow air in and evaporate the fragrance. In a month this will result in an icky alcohol smelling spritz.
I would also advise you to use verbac, or denatured (sometimes called deodorized) ethyl alcohol. This skips the one-week curing stage and your fragrance becomes ready to use.
I gave my mom some, and she used wayyyyyyyy too much. For some reason, my allergies acted up when I went into the room she was using. The fine fragrance I used is definitely not phlatelet free. If you are sensitive too, I suggest you hand blend a fine fragrance blend using the note information above using Essential oils or E.O.s.
