Making Perfume Using Essential Oils

I have recently used essential oils to make hand scrubs, but I would like to learn how to make perfume. Does anyone have a good recipe and advice on how to find the best oils and which ones blend well together? I love the idea of making my own fragrance without all the chemicals.

the thing to understand with perfumes and essential oils is that you need three notes - a top note (usually sweeter or floral), a medium note, and a base note (which is usually musky or wooden or otherwise strong) in this proportion:

Base: 20%

Middle: 50%

Top: 30%

you mix them up and either mix them with a carrier oil or with vodka. The latter is more of a cologne than a perfume.

Some great guides are here: http://www.over … ature-scent.html

I have done this before, and what I have liked is patchouli for base, rose for middle tone, and bergamot as a top note

you can also replace patchouli with sandalwood (more people prefer sandal) and replace rose with jasmine or lemongrass.
