Hi, I'm Stephanie from and I'm going to show you, or give you directions on how to create a perfume. Now, when I'm creating perfume, I start by blending my base notes, heart notes and top notes and then I go to diluting it. So, I've gathered a few oils together and what I'm going to start out with for my - the two base notes that I've picked out, I'm using vetiver and cedar wood and what I'll do is just put a couple of drops of each and see how it turns out. And it's really a trial and error process, at least for me. I just go in and try something and, if it - if it works, great, if it doesn't work, then that's fine too. Next time I'll do something a little bit different and see how it turns out. And I want to write down every number of drops of each that I make so that later on I can go back and make the recipe again. So, I have my base notes and, you know, I can check on it and see if I want to add a little more of each. But, I'm going to go to adding my middle notes and my top notes and we'll see how that turns out. I'm going to add a little bit of clove, just a couple of drops here, that's a clove bud CO2 extract actually. And I'm going to put in some ginger and orange and we will have a nice little spicy perfume, with a little bit of citrus top to it. So then just add both of these in there and see how you like it on first smell. I can go ahead and adjust it now if you'd like. But over the next 24 to 48 hours, the blend is going to mature and change, so once you let it sit for a day or two, then you'll want to come back, smell it then and make any adjustments you want to make. And again, if you make some adjustments, go back. Then once you have it where you like it, dilute it in your carrier oil, your carrier, either perfume oil or alcohol and then you'll have a finished perfume.
