Blending Basics: Combine. Experiment. Blend.
“Perfume is like a personal signature, which is why I like to mix my own.” ~ Christian Dior
For the first time, anyone can fully express themselves in scent. Using our oil shop as your fragrance palette, you can design and blend your own custom scent by combining fragrances directly on the skin.
Using single note fragrances, found here, which are combinations of the fewest ingredients that comprise a recognizable smell. Notes have special characteristics: they express their nature immediately and do not change over time. Notes, also called accords, are what master perfumers use when making prestige and designer fragrances, to create the familiar top, middle and bottom note dry-down that is associated with how the smell of prestige and designer fragrances change over time.
Now for the rules …
Rule #1: There are no rules. Simply select your favorite scents. Combine. Experiment. Blend.
- Try combining one from the Top, Middle and Bottom note sections on our blending guide.
- Experiment with different fragrance combinations and proportions.
- Even the order that you apply the fragrances to the skin will affect the final fragrance.
- Try combining multiple fragrances from the same row.
- Try combining multiple fruits or multiple flowers
- Spray each fragrance on separate pepper strip. Combine strips and smell in various sequences until you find the scent you want to use on your skin.
TIP: Use multiple strips of a single fragrance to play with different concentrations.
