I'm on a journey to become a mama with my Wife, who is also named Liv. I like octopuses, a great book and you’ll never find me without a big cup of ice water or a glass of wine by my side. I love essential oils, bad jokes, mini m&m’s and really big ideas. I talk a lot and love love love to laugh. Traveling is my jam. Right here you will see all of those things, plus a bit more craziness. Want to be friends? Hit the contact tab.
Have you ever wanted an easy guide to making your own, personalized perfume using essential oils?
Look no further, I’ve got you covered!
Each perfume roller or bottle should have three main layers, plus the “filler”. The filler will be 100 Proof Vodka for perfume in a spray bottle, or your favorite scentless carrier oil in a roller: vitamin E oil, jojoba oil, etc.
The three main layers to build your perfume are your base notes, middle notes, and top notes. The use for each is explained below in this handy chart!
|Base Notes||Middle notes||Top Notes|
|Should make up 20% of your blend. These are the aromas that will linger through out the day.||These bond the top and bottom notes together. A good proportion for middle notes is 50%.||Lighter fragrances. These are the notes that your senses will pick up on first. They will then fade into the deeper notes. These should be 30% of your blend.|
Below are lists of base, middle and top notes to make your favorite perfume!
