Perfume Recipes

Here are some of my own favorite perfume recipes. All of these use 1 cup of distilled water and 5 teaspoons of vodka or other spirit, only the fragrance oils vary. Follow the instructions in the previous post to make these fragrances.

Arabian Dusk

3 drops of coriander oil
1 drop of Frankincense oil
3 drops of Juniper oil
4 drops of Orange oil


1 drop Frankincense oil
4 drops Grapefruit oil
3 drops Rosemary oil
2 drops Spearmint oil

Here's my favorite cologne recipe:

3 drops lemongrass oil
10 drops lavender oil
10 drops lime oil

Don't be afraid to experiment with any of these fragrance recipes. Learning how to make your own fragrances is as much about experimentation as about following recipes. Just keep notes of everything you do so that if you do discover how to make the perfect perfume, you can duplicate the results.
