Recipes for perfumes using essential oils

Old fashioned Eau-de-Cologne

Place the alcohol/vodka base into your glass mixing container, add the oils in the order listed and mix well. Bottle, cap and leave the mixture for 4 days and then add the orange flower water and re-cap. Leave the mixture for at least two weeks, giving the bottle a gentle shake every day.

‘All alive’ perfume

Place the base into your mixing container and add the ingredients in the order listed and mix. Bottle and use. You can reduce the base, but do note your concentration will then exceed 15%.

Sensual perfume for women

Place oil base in mixing container, add oils in the order listed and mix. Bottle, cap and leave one week before using.

Sensual eau de cologne for men

Place the alcohol/vodka mixture into your mixing bowl, add the oils in the order given and mix well.

The above is our humble contribution to fragrance mixing and is really basic. Your personal taste will determine what you like, and it may be a good idea to look at our pages on floral notes and blending for more information when blending your own fragrance.
