I made my first batch of both solid perfumes and oil-based perfumes last weekend. I used the same recipe of essential oils in order to compare the staying power of each one and the intensity of the scent. It's a fun process and doesn't take hours to do. My first blend turned out fantastic. It's called White Ginger Lily and it smells sweet and slightly spicy so it's warm and, to me, kind of addictive! My combination includes Lavender, White Ginger Lily, Rosewood, Nutmeg, Sandalwood and Black Pepper. Now the trick is labeling such a small product container ... Still working on that one. The solid perfume doesn't linger long so it needs to be reapplied often. The oil-based one is brighter and more intense upon application and lasts a little longer.
