Neroli Recipes

Neroli Solid Perfume Blending Guide

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.

We hope you have fun and enjoy these recipes. Please get in touch if you have any questions.

A MIDSUMMER TWILIGHT

INSPIRATION
'A mystical fairy woodland where mischief is afoot.
As the sky darkens and twilight approaches, the forest comes to life with magical creatures.'

 

Neroli introduces the fragrance with a brightness to capture and entice. Just like the sunset it fades to give way to Imperial rose. The rose note adds a mysterious and seductive depth, with dark and spicy elements. Tonka bean in the base gives the feeling of warmth and creates the image of soft glowing lanterns in the darkening forest glen.

Opens with a high pitched and loud dose of citrus and sea salt. Sharp and bright neroli gives the impression of the dry scorching sun overhead. Sea salt conjures up images of the moving dark blue sea, wild and mysterious. Complex lavender adds texture to the sea, different hues of blue, indigo and turquoise.

'A big beautiful swirled lollipop,
an indulgent treat that never fails to make people smile and create feelings of fun and innocence.
A creamy, sugary sweet delight enjoyed by those that relish being in the moment.'

 

Cherry blossom is the prominent note in this blend. Its sweet and gourmand quality creates the illusion of a pink, cherry flavoured lollipop. Neroli adds brightness and depth.

MASQUERADE

Iris

Neroli

Imperial Rose

 

INSPIRATION
'The crowded Venice masquerade has just begun. The guests wear masks and costumes in every colour, adorned with feathers, intricate lace and sumptuous fabrics. The waterways are filled with gondolas and lit by romantic candlelight. There is energy in the air, but who are the people behind the masks?'

 

Iris and imperial rose blend together to create a noble and aristocratic ambience. Iris (orris root) has been grown in Italy for centuries and symbolises royalty. Intoxicating imperial rose creates opulence, extravagance and intrigue. Citrus neroli complements by adding radiance and lift in the top notes.
