Oakmoss 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.

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

SNOW TOPPED MOUNTAIN

Oakmoss

Cherry Blossom

Green Tea

 

INSPIRATION
'A nearby stream coming down from the grey snowy mountains above. The gentle sound of rushing water and the drip-drop of melting ice. Clean and pure.'

 

Green tea opens with a crisp fresh quality conjuring up images of inhaling cool outdoor air. Cherry blossom's sweet, pretty note reflects the breathtaking views and beautiful scenery. Oakmoss leads the mind to think of the flora and fauna all around, nature's trees, mosses and plants.

 

CHARACTER

Aromatic fruity fragrance.

Feminine

 

Daytime

 

FOUGERE

Lavender

Oakmoss

Tonka Bean

 

INSPIRATION
'A daytime forest scene where a fresh crisp fern glows bright green in the dappled shade. The air is still and the forest floor is made of rich brown earth and tufts of spongy moss.'

 

Smooth herbaceous lavender blends with milky tonka bean to create a fresh but dense scent giving the illusion of lush foliage in a crowded forest. Green, earthy oakmoss adds richness and another shade of green to the forest landscape.

 

CHARACTER

Fougere fragrance.

Masculine

 

Daytime

 

SPLASH

Oakmoss

Sea Salt

 Lemon

 

INSPIRATION
'You are standing at the top of a cliff about to jump into the deep blue sea below. You leap. The fall feels like an eternity. Once you hit the water it becomes dark all around.'

 

Initially energetic lemon creates the impression of nervousness, excitement and freedom all at once. Sea salt, with its savoury and marine notes, mimics the freshness of the sea. Oakmoss adds depth, texture and colour by conjuring up images of dark green seaweed and the murky colour of the water as you dive into the ocean.

 

CHARACTER

Citrus aquatic fragrance.

Masculine

 

Daytime

 

CHYPRE

Patchouli

Oakmoss

Bergamot

 

INSPIRATION
'Rather than creating a picture this scent is about personality, an attitude. Definitely not whimsical, the scent is for serious minded individuals, straight talking and decisive. The person wearing this combination does not toy with emotions and knows what they want.'

 

Unencumbered by the frills of fruit and flowers, this fragrance gets straight to powerful earthy and grounding notes. Patchouli and oakmoss create a warm and strong green base. Bergamot adds lightness and a jovial characteristic.

 

CHARACTER

Chypre fragrance.

BROWN SHOES

Leather

Vetiver

Oakmoss

 

INSPIRATION
'A pair of brown shoes.'

 

Dark leather conjures up images of new leather shoes. Woody vetiver smooths out any roughness in the leather note and makes the leather feel more tactile and mellow. Oakmoss adds an earthy feel, hinting at the ground beneath the shoes, making them feel more lived in.

 

CHARACTER

Leather fragrance.

Masculine

 

Daytime Evening

 

AT THE APOTHECARY

Geranium

Oakmoss

Tonka Bean

 

INSPIRATION
'A Victorian apothecary with rows and rows of stoppered glass bottles. Mysterious ingredients used to treat ailments and maladies. The gentleman behind the counter mixes up a herbal brew for you.'

 

Spicy geranium conjures up images of fresh herbs and flowers being pounded in a pestle and mortar. An ointment maybe, or a syrup? Geranium gives a slight medicinal edge and harks back to old fashioned remedies picked from the garden. Oakmoss adds more primitive feeling, bringing you into the forest where you might forage for special plants and herbs. If the medicine was bitter, it would be mixed with something sweet to make the 'brew' more palatable. The addition of sweet tonka bean acts like this masking agent.

 

CHARACTER

Herbal fougere fragrance.

Masculine Feminine

 

Daytime
