4. Perfume Making Procedure
Now let’s go the heart of this article. Having all the materials and tools you need to do the mixing, you can actually just pour all the materials altogether inside the beaker ( and throw the result.. just kidding 😀 ).
Yes you can, BUT this procedure will make the most out of your perfume. This procedure will ensure that the chemicals that needs to be mixed first will go first, and the last ones will be at the end. So here we go:
1. Using the 10ml Cylinder measure 15ml of fragrance oil then pour it into the flask.
2. Using the stirring rod, put 12 Drops of fixative then. Stir well.
3. Measure 3ml DPG then add it to the solution. Stir some more.
4. Next, using the 100ml Cylinder, measure 75 ml ethanol then mix it with the solution. Stir Hard.
5. Add around 7ml Distilled Water to make your every own 100ml Perfume at 15% concentration. Stir Harder! you can do it! (I’ll cheer you up!)
6. Using the stirring rod, add a less-than-a-drop of perfume grade color then stir until the color is even throughout the solution. This is an optional procedure. You may or may not want to add color to your perfume. It all depends on you 🙂
7. You now have your perfume! hooray! Now pour that awesome solution into an amber bottle and seal it well.
8. Refrigerate it for 7 days OR Store it in room temperature (25) for about 14 days.
You might notice there are measurements in milliliters (ml) that just pop up in the procedure, if you want to learn more about the computation regarding the percentages in the solution, you might want to study basics of solutions, the percentages, and etc. in google.

After having the perfume refrigerated, we’re now ready to do some packaging. If you want to market your perfume with your own brand, you need to choose which bottle you are going to put it in.
Add some stickers or laser markings on it and finally, enclose it in a nice box of your own choice.
So, that’s it! I hope you enjoy reading this perfume making procedure and you are now ready to start your homemade perfume business. Have fun!
