Also Demeter Fragrance comes out with a month blending signature blending trio.
I got the vanilla trio for my base note blending kit.
It came with Hawaiian vanilla, angel food and gingerbread. It also came with pieces of white stripes that photo of it has sadly gone missing.
Of all the duo I could have chosen. I picked clean skin and sunshine. I love smell of the sunshine on my skin after I just had a shower.
Here is what mine came with a empty 30 ml bottle, a funnel and three droppers. It should come with four droppers.
So first thing I did was that a drop from each scent and add it a piece of the paper strip provide and wait a min and smelled each scent and plan what I was going to go from there.
Then I took the scents that I like to mixed with was clean skin, sunshine, gingerbread and Hawaiian vanilla.
Then I pulled out more of the paper strips and let the fun begin.
Here are the combines I liked:
Two parts sunshine, one part Hawaiian Vanilla, One part clean skin
Two parts sunshine, two parts Hawaiian Vanilla and one part clean skin
One part sunshine, one part Hawaiian vanilla, one part clean skin and one part gingerbread
Then when I had the combo that I wanted to use I measure the bottle size from base to shoulder of the bottle and found it was 5 cm. I then measure off my cm. So if something was two parts equaled to 2 cm of the bottle and one part was 1 cm. So I marked on the empty bottle my measurements.
First I cover my work space with paper towel, then inserted the funnel in the bottle’s neck and proceeded to use the droppers. Near the end I broke all the droppers and had to relied on the funnel. At the end of it I have a scent that said me.
The scent winner of the three was *drum roll* two parts sunshine, one part Hawaiian vanilla and one part clean skin.
Which I named Hawaiian Dream as a tribute one of my fave. oldies summer song by The Mamas and The Papas- California Dreamin.
I want to recommend that you go over to a dollar store and get a back up a dropper. Just in case the droppers break.
I had so much fun making my own perfume and think this would be a great gift for anyone who is a perfume lover.
I give this product a 4.5 stars out of 5 stars.
