A different approach
Today I used a different way to create the fragrance that is based on magnolia and white flowers. See other posts about this fragrance here and here. I started with the basic notes I had in mind and added alcohol and put this base(phase 1) on a smelling strip. After that I put another oil in the same bottle and dipped the smelling strip in it and named it phase 2, after that another oil phase 3 until I had 8 smelling strips. This way I can see how the different oils fit in the fragrance, if there is to much of it in it or that it don't fit in it. I know that the formula isn't accurate this way but it gives me an idea how the different components work together. After bottle one, I go on with bottle two with all the information in mind I learned from the first bottle. And start to experiment again with 8 different smelling strips. I think this method learned me the impact of the oils and is a nice way to control the formula.
