Are you craving a scent that perfectly captures the fresh, crisp aroma of laundry day? Our Fresh Mirage perfume recipe is exactly what you need. This perfume recipe mirrors the clean scent of freshly laundered linens by creatively blending cotton, white musk, and a splash of lemon essential oils. This is the perfect go-to perfume for everyday wear.

The heart of this DIY perfume is a blend of naturally-derived essential oils. These are suspended in a mixture of 100% ethyl alcohol from and water, which makes for a healthier and more responsible alternative to commercial fragrances laden with synthetic chemicals.

  1. 100% ethyl alcohol from
  2. Distilled Water
  3. Cotton Essential Oil
  4. White Musk Essential Oil
  5. Lemon Essential Oil

The Fresh Mirage Recipe:

  1. Cotton Essential Oil: The clean, fresh core of the perfume. Use 15 drops.
  2. White Musk Essential Oil: This oil introduces a soft, sensual scent to the mix. Use 10 drops.
  3. Lemon Essential Oil: To add a fresh, zesty note to the perfume. Use 5 drops.

For a 30ml perfume, these 30 drops (approximately 1.5ml) of aromatic compounds will make up about 5% of the total volume. The remaining volume (around 28.5ml) will be a blend of ethyl alcohol and water to carry the fresh scents effectively.

  1. 100% Ethyl Alcohol from Use 21ml.
  2. Distilled Water: Use 7.5ml.

Steps to Create Your Perfume:

  1. Use the glass dropper to add your essential oils to the perfume bottle.

  3. Add the distilled water to complete the blend.
