We love perfume here at The Gloss. As far as I am concerned, pondering one’s perfect signature scent is an excellent use of a weekend. But even with all the possible fragrances out there, it can be difficult to find one that is perfect for you. If you make your own, however, you’re virtually guaranteed to have something perfect for your personality and completely unique. When you’re out, and someone asks you what scent you’re wearing, you can just say, “Oh, I made it myself.” That’s always cool.
Check out these 12 ways to DIY your own perfume.
1. Perfumed Body Powder
Grandma used to wear perfumed body powder. Now you can, too, in any scent you like.
2. DIY Solid Perfume
OK, this looks really fun.
3. DIY Solid Perfume Jewelry
And you can stick the solid perfume in jewelry. I am definitely doing this after work today.
4. DIY Perfume Kit
Once you have this, you will start putting your own signature scent on everything.
5. DIY Perfume Soap
You can even make your own perfumed soap.
6. Heart notes, base notes, and top notes
The perfume you buy at the store has layers of different notes to give it complexity. This will help you achieve the same kind of layers. Jasmine and black pepper sound pretty good right about now.
7. How to make perfume from vodka
Well, this sounds like a fun night.
8. Homemade eau de parfum
This tutorial is gorgeous and very clear.
9. How to make perfume from roses
Instead of essential oil and vodka, you can make your perfume directly from flowers. This lady had a surplus of pink roses, and that’s exactly what she did with them.
10. Making perfume with kids
This version is easy enough for kids—no guarantees on how great it will smell, though.
11. How to make perfume oils
I have always loved perfume oils. Something about them just seems more fancy than perfume sprays. This one smells like red velvet cake.
12. DIY Perfume locket
This seems like something a Victorian romance heroine would wear.
