Jason, Welcome to Basenotes! There's no quick paint-by-numbers or assemble-a-kit path to perfume making. Google is your friend, so look up information and read it. There's a huge amount of good information out there if you search. If books are your thing, buy a good book on perfumery. Sample everything you can get your hands on and learn what is being done by others. Join in the discussions in the DIY section here. Don't be afraid to experiment. And when getting started, deep pockets help immensely.
