I'm new to these boards and like your creative approach! I mainly am doing this now by layering fragrances with scented bath and body products, which creates new scents more suited for me. No matter how many fragrances or perfumes I've tried, no one ever seems to get it *exactly* right for my own personal taste and doing this over the years has given me some really great ideas for creating my own new fragrances. I have yet to attempt any of my own, but I am working up the courage!
This addiction to fragrance is really a passion for me, uplifting and energizing, rather than destructive. It speaks to my soul.
