Perfume is a huge staple for a lot of women. A lot of us have our signiture scent- mine use to be Lolita Lempicka. & we women have ZERO issue dropping 100's of dollars on that special bottle.

Perfumes are merely scents/aromatics that can trigger memories, evoke feelings of confidence, sexiness, etc... & easily become a part of our daily ritual.

Ditching the synthetic & hormone disrupting fragrances can be a tough pill to swallow- I know it was for me. So I wanted to make sure you all knew how to create your own signature scents.

I recently ordered Melissa Poepping's newest book : Essential Parfumerie & I'm obsessed. I don't want to give away all of her secrets and amazing aromatic scents, but I did want to give you a bit of insight on how to make your own perfume.


THE CONCENTRATIONS:

• PARFUME
Select a tall, slim 10 ml roll-on bottle with a stainless steel roller ball.
Add the essential oils of your selected aromatic (note: the order matters when using Melissa’s specific recipes).
Fill bottle to top with 80 proof vodka

• EAU DE PARFUME
Select 2 oz fine mist aromatic spray bottle.
Add the essential oils of your selected aromatic
Fill bottle with 1 oz 80 proof vodka & 1 oz pure water (or as appropriate.

• EAU DE TOILETTE - (body mist)
Select a 4-6 oz fine mist aromatic spray bottle
Add essential oils of your selected aromatic.
Fill bottle with 1 oz 80 proof vodka and 3-5 oz pure water.

Note: Substituting witch hazel for vodka will change the scent composition.
