It doesn't matter if you measure by weight or volume as long as you do it the same way each time, i.e., don't measure by volume one time and weight the next, or mix the two methods unless you write it down in your notes that A was by volume, B by weight. Having said this, precise measurements are only important if you need to reproduce your formulas for commercial purposes. If you're just making perfumes just for yourself, play around and have fun as you would when cooking without a recipe.
I am the renegade who measures by volume. My favorite way to do this is with an adjustable pipette gun that uses disposable tips. You can get pipette guns in various size ranges from a scientific equipment supplier. The pipette gun itself is expensive, but the tips are not if you buy in bulk. This method really helps prevent contamination of one material with another. The pipette gun is definitely worth the price in the long run, since it really speeds up the process and is also handy for dispensing measured amounts into sample vials, small bottles, etc. It's much more precise than those funky all-in-one squeeze bulb plastic pipettes or a dropper. By the way, a dropper is probably the worst way to measure since "drops" are not consistent in size even for a single material. Moreover, if the dropper has a rubber squeeze bulb, the rubber can disintegrate and contaminate the liquid. I won't even mention the impossibility of cleaning a dropper if you were to want to use it for more than one thing.
