I love fragrances, I dream about fragrances. In my mind I create and smell fragrances. This blog is about my world.
The world of fragrances.
In 1999 I tried to create my first perfume. It didn't turned out to be the perfume I had in mind. I started to read about essential oils and all I could find about perfume. I needed to learn a lot about the making of perfume. Everyday I learned more and more. I learned about the reaction of the fragrance materials with one and another. It's amazing how some oils react with each other. I started to learn the essential oils and the characters of them. Now I am still addicted to it. This blog is about my experiences of the making of perfumes.
Right now I'm working on a perfume with white flowers with a ambery note. It has notes of Roses, Jasmine, Tuberose, Honeysuckle, Orangeblossom, Musk, Amber, Vetiver, Sandal, Vanilla etc. I love the fragrance of Tuberose and add a huge amount of Tuberose absolute in it. I like fresh white flower perfumes but this one is gone be more sensual. The result was still to "white" for me and I was searching for something warm. After a lot of experiments I tried to add Coriander and that was the trick it smell warm and sensual but also full of white blooms. I'm still working on it because it need to be more balanced. A lot of perfumes with a Tuberose note contain Selleryseed so I will try that also.
