when someone think about to make a perfume at home
what maximum step he can take to make an acoord like a frech perfume?
1) take a perfume oil (ready to dillute in alchol)
and have some alchol pure it into the perfume oil and
after a weak add some water.......your perfume is ready to wear........
now come to the second part..............
you need minimun 12 esenshal oils
4 for top note (citrus)
4for midlle notes(floral)
4 for base note(woody)
but the point is
esenshal oils are good but it is not the only option you have. you have to add lot of other chamical now what to do
spoze if we talk about top notes (the citrus note) you have estnshal oils like lemon lime bergamot and neroli..........but to make a modren perfume you need some chemicals also so what to do now ......?you have to add some chamicals like citral limonene geronal (in right amount......but the problum is some of citus chamical are to strong to add in top notes so its an art to collect the right one
if you have floral notes in the middle notes and now you have to give it a modran touch so you have to add some chamicals...............
spoze you are talking about benzil actate its have a light jasmin aroma and order is low (4 hours at smeling stip) this can be use in middle note due to its floral aroma but just becose of its low order you cant put it into the middle note so what to do now ?
now you have to take vernaldehyde its have a green mountain air carctor and have a good strenth and can blend well with citrus floral and woody notes
now to come to the third part
the base notes
in wich you have cedarwood oil sandalwood oil marrgum and ambergrees
now you have to add some chamical acoding to the streght of the bace oils
now its your scence of perfume making that what kind of chamicals you need to make a perfact blend
spoze you add sandalwood oil so you can add sandalwood assnece (its not an esanshal oils ) its a chamical compund and very pleazent
if you are making a perfume like this
yes there is no need 30% of perfume oil eaven 10% make a very strong scent
but if you are dealing with a perfume oil (in low strength) its up to you that what to do what not to do)
i know there is nothing like 200% but let me tell you what i mean
if have a vodka and it is 80% proof then its mean that its have 40% alchol
if you have 100% proof ethnol its mean its contain 50% alchol
and if you have 200% alchol then its mean mean its have minum 95% alchol like eaverclear and monshine
now come to the final point......................................
perfume making is not a kind of relgun in wich you dont have opstion that you are not allwod to do whateaver you want to do
all the perfumery methords are made by heumens like us..............
if there is a boy with toy and dont want to do something in wich he have to fight an uphill battle then there is no need to do any thing just have a rady made perfume oil and put it into the ethnol and its ready to wear
but if someone is serieus about perfumery then have to do somthing with the solvent to make a perfume
have to add some jojob or grapseed oil sweed almond oil
as far as cunsorn of methnol is poison
what about benzene?
and ethnol by himself ?
hundreds of chamicals out there is nothing but a poison
so what to do now if all perfumer companies are making such craps?
you said all these solvents make perfume cloudy
but give it a try...............
