I've been experimenting with essential oils lately in order to make my own perfume, I'm having some difficulties. My main difficulty is actually mixing. I'll add things together that seem to go well, but when I mix the alcohol and dpg, It ends up smelling like a nasty version of Drakkar and vodka. I noticed something interesting though, once I was cleaning out a beaker with hot water after a failed mix, and the residue ended up smelling exactly how I wanted after the water was out. What gives?
