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!
