Includes one pack of blotters, test vials, a measuring cylinder, one perfume bottle and perfume alcohol.

smell

Label one blotter for each note, then group them by Top, Heart, and Base note.

 

Use the built-in dropper to place one drop of fragrance on the blank end of each blotter (one note per strip).

 

Let dry for a few moments, then smell each blotter individually to familiarize yourself with your notes.

select

Select three notes - one from each group - that you'll want in your finished perfume. See what they smell like together by fanning out the blotters in one hand and waving them under your nose.

Evaluate your selections as you go by smelling the fanned out blotters until you’re ready to do a test blend.

test

Use the built-in droppers to blend your notes in an empty test vial, using no more than 6 drops per note. Use perfume alcohol as needed to make your blend a total of 60 drops.

 

Keep track of your proportions so you can replicate or adjust your formula until you're happy with it. 

blend

Scale up the proportions of your winning blend using the 10ml Measuring Cylinder: 6 drops = 1ml, 3 drops = .5ml

NOTE

It's recommended you use no more than 1ml of any given note in your 10ml perfume in order to avoid skin sensitization.

 

If your blend doesn't reach the 10ml mark, use your Perfume Alcohol to top off.

bottle

Use the pouring spout on the Measuring Cylinder to transfer your blend to your 10ml Fine Mist Perfume Bottle.

 

Your fragrance is ready to wear right away, and will get better over time.
