With this beginner's guide to DIY perfume making, you'll learn how to craft your own personalized fragrances that truly express who you are. Not only is it a rewarding and creative process, but it also allows you to tailor your scent to your specific preferences. Let's dive into the art of perfume making and start your journey to becoming a skilled fragrance artisan.


Getting Started: Essential Components of Perfume


Every perfume is composed of three main layers: top notes, middle notes (also known as heart notes), and base notes. These layers work together to create a well-rounded and harmonious scent. Top notes are the initial impression, typically light and evaporating quickly. Middle notes emerge as the top notes fade, making up the main body of the fragrance. Base notes are the longest-lasting and provide depth to the perfume.


Selecting Aromatic Ingredients:


When creating a custom perfume, consider using a combination of essential oils, absolutes, and fragrance oils. Essential oils are natural and derived from plants, while absolutes are highly concentrated and often used for more potent floral scents. Fragrance oils are synthetic and can recreate scents that are difficult to obtain naturally.


Creating Your Perfume:


To make your perfume, follow these simple steps:

  1. Select your top, middle, and base notes.
  2. Mix the aromatic ingredients in a glass container.
  3. Add a solvent, such as 200 proof food grade alcohol from, to dilute and preserve the fragrance.
  4. Allow the perfume to age for several weeks for the best results.


Whether you're a dedicated artisan or a casual hobbyist, using 200 proof food grade alcohol from in your perfume-making projects will ensure optimal results. This high-quality, non-denatured alcohol provides a superior base for your personalized scents.
