If you remember, some weeks ago, I mentioned the fact that I have been trying my hands on creating my very own fragrance. I created the perfume in the comfort of my bedroom with my daughter’s input thanks to The Perfume Studio. For those who have never heard of The Perfume Studio, the brand stocks exquisite range of blends sourced from the world’s finest ingredients to create personalised fragrances.
I had the privilege of getting the Exotic Collection, which had 6 carefully selected blends – Fruity Amber, Musky, Exotic Floral, Spicy, Amber and Gourmand.
How I Created My Very Own Fragrance
I stated on a smooth flat surface with some kitchen towels close by. After taking a quick sniff of each of the blends, using the scent strip, I noted my favourites and stated the process of filling the perfume bottle with the blends using the pipettes provided in the box.
I wanted a floral scent to match the current season, so I started with the Exotic Floral Blend. The blend is dry, sweet and floral. I poured in about 7ml of the Exotic Floral Blend as I wanted it very summery and I needed the gold colour of the blend to reflect in the final look of my perfume.
Fragrance Tip 1 – Keep some coffee beans handy to help neutralise the nose in between smelling the blends.
Then I went for the Gourmand Blend next. This blend has a stronger scent and I didn’t want it overpowering the floral scent. So I poured in only 4ml of this blend.
The Musky Blend went in next. I needed only 2ml of it as I didn’t want it overpowering the overall floral fragrance I was going for.
I love the sweetness of the Amber Blend scent a lot. 5ml of it went in next, with another 5ml of the Spicy Blend going in to add some spice to the final fragrance.
Finally, 4ml of the Fruity Blend went into the perfume bottle.
I really like this fragrance I created. The final scent is just what I wanted – sweet and floral. I also got the gold look I wanted as well. If you are interested in creating a unique fragrance, I suggest you check out The Perfume Studio. I enjoyed my first experience of creating my own unique scent. And I am looking forward to creating many more scents.
Fragrance Tip 2 -Keep your perfume in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and temperature changes.
