I'm hopeful

My perfume based on the scent of magnolia turned out well. I'm really hopeful now that it's going to be the fragrance I had in mind. It's not just a magnolia perfume but it's build around the scent of magnolia. I used two rose scents as well the May Rose and the Bulgarian Rose, Lilly of the Valley for the fresh green/white scent and Orange blossom to add that lovely fresh flowery fragrance. To enhance the soft fresh scent of the Magnolia I used Jasmin Sambac and Hedione. To soften it up I used a velvety Vanilla and added Iris for her powdery fragrance, the Iris and the Hedione are the new notes I used and it improved the fragrance just as I had in mind. I will try other Lilly of the Valley notes to see if it will give a more light fresh flowery note. In the base I used a lovely warm amber note and a sensual musk. The topping is made of citrus notes, pineapple and fresh green notes. My problem before was that the fragrance didn't stay long enough but with adding the amber and the musk it will stay for 24 hours! For me it's important that a fragrance stay long on my skin and I'm happy that it worked with this fragrance. It's almost perfect but it's still not done.

Hi Marina,
The smell of magnolia is amazing, it is one of the first fragrances I made, the fragrance of magnolia is complex; it has a fresh delicate scent and at the same time it's wonderful smooth velvety.

Hi Mimi, it doesn't matter how long it takes, it gives me pleasure to make it perfect. I love the journey to find the perfect scent. It's like a long journey it's not all about the final destiny you have to enjoy the whole trip on itself.
