A: Start by shopping the Mad Perfumer Top, Heart and Base note collections. You'll want no fewer than 3, but possibly closer to 10 notes in your finished fragrance. Get enough so you have room to play. Pick up a Blending Kit - it contains everything you need to get started. When your order arrives, explore each note on an individual fragrance blotter and experiment with different combinations by smelling multiple blotters together. Test out blends drop by drop with the tiny Tester Bottles. When you find a combination of notes you like and you're ready to make a full size bottle, use the Measuring Cylinder to add no more than 1ml of each note to make sure everything is diluted enough to wear on your skin (that's no more than 10% of the finished fragrance). If you need to, top off your blend to the 10ml mark with Perfume Alcohol. Then use the Measuring Cylinder's spout to transfer the perfume into the 10ml Fine Mist Perfume Bottle - done!
