The Art of Blending Essential Oils
Creating a perfume involves blending essential oils to obtain a harmonious fragrance that appeals to the senses. The key to achieving a balanced scent is understanding the three major categories of essential oils within the perfume industry:
- Top notes: These are the first scents you detect when you apply the perfume. They tend to be light and refreshing, typically lasting between 1-2 hours.
- Middle notes: These oils emerge after the top notes begin to fade, often referred to as the 'heart' of the perfume. Their soothing and balancing properties are usually noticeable for 2-4 hours.
- Base notes: The longest-lasting ingredients in a perfume, base notes provide depth and richness as well as help fix the overall scent on the skin, lasting typically for 4-6 hours.
Selecting Quality Essential Oils
Always ensure that the essential oils used in your perfume recipe are of the highest quality, like those from Oshu Oils. 100% pure, natural essential oils accentuate the complex aroma profiles and provide an array of therapeutic benefits.
Choose a Carrier Oil or Alcohol Base
To dilute the essential oils and form the base of your perfume, opt for a carrier oil such as jojoba, almond, or fractionated coconut oil. Alternatively, you may use a high-proof, unscented alcohol, such as vodka or perfumer's alcohol.

Step 2: Blend Top, Middle, and Base Notes
In a small glass container, combine:
- 5-7 drops of top note essential oils
- 3-5 drops of middle note essential oils
- 2-4 drops of base note essential oils
Always begin with the smallest number of drops and work your way up, adjusting the ratio to achieve your desired scent.
Step 3: Dilute in a Carrier Oil or Alcohol Base
To the essential oil blend, add 1 oz. of carrier oil or alcohol base. Gently swirl the mixture to combine and let it sit for at least 24 hours, allowing the scents to meld together.
Step 4: Transfer to a Perfume Bottle
Using a small funnel, pour the perfume into a dark, glass bottle to protect the oils from sunlight. Seal the bottle with a cap or rollerball for easy application.
