You Will Need:
-2 glass containers (such as measuring cups or beakers)
–Fine Fragrance Oil
-151 or 190 proof unflavored neutral alcohol (such as Everclear, or perfumer’s alcohol)
–Scale or Measuring Spoons (plastic or non-reactive metal)
–Empty Perfume Bottles and Sprayers
-Non-reactive metal spoon for mixing
-Plastic Wrap or Paper Towel
Determine the amount of alcohol needed from the chart and measure it on the scale or with measuring spoons accordingly. Add the alcohol to one of the empty glass containers.
Weigh/measure the amount of fine fragrance to correspond to the amount of alcohol used in step 1. Add the fine fragrance to the container with the alcohol.
Weigh/measure the amount of distilled water to correspond to the amount of alcohol and fine fragrance used. (Be sure to check the chart based on the proof of your alcohol.) Add the water to the container with the alcohol and fragrance. You may notice the mixture become cloudy at this point.
Mix the ingredients thoroughly with a non-reactive metal spoon until the mixture is no longer cloudy.
Cover the glass container with plastic wrap to prevent the alcohol from evaporating and cover that with a paper towel. Place the container in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight.
Remove the container from the refrigerator and remove the plastic or paper covering. Place the funnel and/or filter into the second glass container and slowly pour the contents through the filter into the second container.
Use the glass pipette to fill your perfume bottles to the desired amount.
Add the sprayer caps to the bottles, shake well, and enjoy!
