Wearing perfume is often limited by the cost of designer brands. Blending your own fragrance takes perfume wearing to another level. You can design your own perfume to suit your mood, your character and your lifestyle - and, of course, your budget! Make Your Own Perfume guides you through individual aromas, showing you how to design and structure perfume for yourself and for others. It includes blending tips to help you create your own range of gorgeous signature scents and fragrances that you can wear as often as you like. In this book you will discover how to: - Identify the fragrance families and choose which ones are better suited to different occasions - Classify both natural and synthetic oils into 'note' categories to enable you to balance your perfume - Make tinctures and infusions to use in your perfumes - Dilute your perfume blend to become a body spray, eau de toilette, eau de parfum, pure perfume, or aftershave - Package your perfume - and choose appropriate names for it - Create perfume blends for pot pourri, reed diffusers and other room scenting products.
