My apartment has become a perfumery. I just finished my concoctions. I now have four vials of what hopefully will be nice-smelling perfume. I think they have to “sit” for a day or something. This is what I received in my kit:










Some English Rose, Tuberose Moss, Rosemary, and Pink Grapefruit oils. And unscented perfume base. I tried a few different recipes. I’ll let you know which turns out the best.

A little perfume 101: there are three notes in a fragrance blend. The top note is a light note; it is the first scent you smell, but it evaporates. The middle note is the main body of the perfume. It is often a floral scent. The base or bottom note is “rich and deep” and comes out after about 30 minutes of putting on the perfume.
