Gardenia Solid Perfume Blending Recipe

Here are a few recipes to help you get started.

Hints: You can blend the solid perfumes in any order. Try varying the amount of each solid perfume too e.g. a lot more lemon and a little less amber. Sniff and adjust the blend accordingly. You are in control so experiment and find what feels right to your nose.

Tip: Try blending on paper with cotton buds. Just layer one solid perfume over the other as you would on your skin. This way if you make a scent you don't like, you won't need to wash it off.

WHITE SHIRT

Gardenia

Patchouli

Tonka Bean

 

INSPIRATION
'A 1950s secretary at her typewriter. Aloof, elegant and sophisticated. Dark rimmed glasses, pencil skirt and a crisp, starched white shirt. Effortless style and poise.'

 

The scent opens with soft powdery gardenia. Its softness hints at a gentle feminine form, and its powdery facet creates a soapy clean feeling conjuring images of tidy attire. Next is dry and woody patchouli, adding seriousness but also an elegant formality. Tonka bean in the background blends and smooths, softening the starkness of the patchouli and gardenia.

INSPIRATION
'You feel good about today - happy, contented and pleased. You're in the right frame of mind to do something new. You no longer put off what you want and decide to give in to the pursuit of pleasure. Come on, let's go.'

 

Restfullness and comfort are created by the soft and creamy paring of the narcotic gardenia and tonka bean. Its warmth lulls you into a feeling of security and safety. A spark of sea salt whispers through the scent, injecting a yearning for adventure and thrill. A scent that reminds you to seize the day and seek happiness - but don't be scared, you will always have a warm and safe home to come back to.

L'AMOUR

Peony

Gardenia

Tonka Bean

 

INSPIRATION
'You have just bumped into the person you secretly have a crush on. You've exchanged shy glances, smiles and laughs and now you feel as though you are floating on a cloud.'

 

A soft, gentle and sweet scent. The top notes of dainty peony fill the mind with giggles and coyness. Flirtacious gardenia intensifies, adding a sense of yearning. Together they are reminiscent of the excitement and happiness you feel during your first romance, and the irrational torment of hopeless infatuation. Creamy tonka bean in the base wraps you up and gives you the warm feeling of being embraced.
