The traditional recipe for the preparation of perfume is based on the mixing of extracts of spices, herbs, flowers, etc. For firmness add a fixer, mainly musk. Of course, it is very difficult to compose a complex chemical formula and independently extract essences from plants or wood. But there is a simplified version.
Those who do not know how to make up their own spirits will be amazed at how simple it is. To make a perfume, you need essential oils that you like, and the carrier substance is alcohol or jojoba oil. The second substance is preferred for people with allergies and contact dermatitis. Although the aroma on an alcohol base can be applied to the hair that jojoba oil simply pollutes. In general, decide for yourself, which is preferable for you.
To make your spirits more complex, multifaceted and resistant, you need to take into account that there must be three notes in the fragrance – the initial or top perfume, the middle or the heart note, and also the final, the same basic, foundation or basic note. By approximate calculations in the spirits should be present 1 part of the initial, 2 part of the middle and 3 part of the final note. The first sounds at the very beginning and quickly gives way to the central note. But the composition ends with the basic note, which can remain on the skin for several days, completely revealing the perfume.
The top perfume can also consist of several notes. For example, vanilla and patchouli are very good. To understand if you like this bouquet, drip both oils on different strips of paper. Then hold them to the nose. If you are satisfied with the result, drip the same number of drops of both in a glass container. Or use them separately. Write down the ingredients in the notebook.
It's time to add a heart note. If you took as the basis of patchouli, know that the rose and geranium are very suitable for this oil. These components can be taken separately or mixed in equal proportions, twice the amount of the initial note. Strictly fix your steps. Write down not only how much of what you added, but what firm was oil.
The base note is crowned with a bouquet. To patchouli and rose, the Sicilian orange is ideal, to ylang-ylang and patchouli – bergamot. Lavender and vanilla can dilute too harsh compositions.
Completes the recipe for the preparation of spirits carrier substance. To begin with, add an amount of alcohol or jojoba oil equal to the total number of drops of essential oils. It will be concentrated perfume, which you can dilute at any time. To create a light toilet water, it is necessary that the concentration of aromatic components is 5%, for spirits – 25%.
To ripen perfume you need a minimum of 2 a week, if it is cooked in jojoba oil, and a month if alcohol acts as a carrier substance.
