The first step to creating your fragrance is deciding what type of fragrance you are interested in creating. What kind of scent will define your personality? Here is a simple guide of the major fragrance families that should help you:
Citrus: The light, fresh character of citrus notes is often combined with more feminine scents (flowers and fruits)
Green: Green notes are natural in character; often married with fruity and floral notes, they are modern and fashionable.
Flowery: An accord of different floral notes.
Single Floral: A composition based on the scent of one particular flower.
Oriental: A blend of warmth and mystery. Musks and precious woods are complemented by exotic essences.
Semi-Oriental: Semi-Orientals combine oriental notes with various florals. Top notes are often fresh.
Chypre: Based on a woody, mossy and flowery complex, sometimes with aspects of leather or fruits, chypre perfumes are rich and tenacious.
After choosing your ingredients you are ready to start the mixing process. You should be careful in creating "top notes" "middle notes" and "base notes". dina recommends the following:
< The simplest method would be to use a 3:2:1 ratio (top:mid:base) once you are a little more experienced you may choose to alter this ratio.>
Using a dropper and counting drops when making your perfume. After you have written your formula, carefully combine the oils you selected by counting drops. Begin by combining the oils. Swirl after every ingredient you add. Then add some distilled kalana, make sure this is the last step since kalana is highly volatile and will evaporate quickly if the bottle is not sealed. You should use about 3 times the amount of oil used. Once the kalana has been added shake the bottle gently. For the next 3 or 4 days shake the bottle twice a day.
