If you want to try something new in your life this year, starting a business can be a truly wonderful thing to do. There are lots of amazing opportunities out there for you to grow and shine, and as a company it is important for you to really come up with something unique which you can sell to the public. 

One popular market to get into, which can be a great chance for success, is fragrance and perfume making. Everyone likes a good perfume, and you can create something totally new and fresh for your audience this year which you also love too. 

Today we want to delve a little deeper into the world of creating scents, and show you the formula you need to make your own perfume this year. 

Use a carrier oil 

When creating a perfume, you will be using a mixture of oil, essential oil, and alcohol. These mixed together form the ideal mixture which can soak into the skin and disperse evenly to allow you to smell amazing all day every day. The first step in making a perfume is to find a carrier oil. 

A Carrier oil is a weak oil on the opposite end of the scale to essential oil, which won’t burn or damage your skin if it comes into direct contact. A lot of the time these oils are used to dilute essential oils and other strong oils to make them palatable for the body. Two great examples of carrier oils are jojoba oil or sweet almond oil. Simply pick a bottle for your perfume and add carrier oil over halfway. 

Add the scent 

Once your carrier oil is in place, you will want to create the scent of your perfume. CDN Isotopes has custom synthesis capabilities and it also offers a mix of different oils and fragrances for you to try. You can also play around with this yourself and gain something wonderful. For example you will usually want 2-3 notes for a perfume. One will be a deep note which sits in the background. One will be a middle note which makes up the main body of the scent. One will be a top note which adds something special to the scent. You can use many different combinations of oils such as grapefruit, lemon, ginger, lime, lavender, rose and more. For example a bottom note could be rose, the middle could be grapefruit, and the top could be ginger. Play around and see what you like. 

Add alcohol 

Once you have found your notes and added them to the bottle starting from bottom to top, it is time to add your alcohol. Add around 2 ounces of alcohol and if there is still space in the bottle, add more carrier oil. 

Shake and leave 

When creating a perfume, it is always good to give the scents some real time to fuse and mix together. Ideally you want to wait at least 48 hours if not a few weeks before you use the perfume.
