Patchouli 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.

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.

UNDER THE ARCHES

Patchouli

Bergamot

Peony

 

INSPIRATION
'Paris in spring, standing under a large archway along a tree lined boulevard. Embracing the one you love.'

 

Youthful and pretty peony bursts with optimism and romance. Bergamot is reminiscent of the fresh spring air and the emerging small green leaves on the trees. Warm, patchouli imparts sincerity, making the scent feel more 'in love' than a temporary infatuation.

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.
