Don’t forget to prepare some essential oils, pipettes, glass droppers, empty bottles, and labels for your bottles.

This is a perfect blend for romantic souls. Make the warm, sweet scent of vanilla your base fragrance, and add a few drops of the spicy scent of clove as a companion note. Mix ¼ cup of almond oil or jojoba oil with one teaspoon of vanilla extract, and add 2-3 drops of clove oil right at the end.

Layer orange and grapefruit with lavender and peppermint scents to create a heavenly, refreshing aroma for your lively personality. Start with 1 tablespoon of jojoba oil in a glass container, and then 30 drops of essential oil: 10 drops of grapefruit as the base note, 10 drops of sweet orange and 5 drops of peppermint as the middle note, and 5 drops of lavender for the top note.

Try your hand at perfumery by making solid scents. This scent is a good choice for those who do not want to overwhelm with a strong fragrance. Opt for a base of beeswax (replaceable with cocoa butter) and almond oil, and blend it with essential oils of lavender, rosemary, and just a hint of litsea cubeba for a great lemony scent.

4. Sandalwood and Bulgarian Rose Perfume
