Make your own signature scent

Friend: "Ummm. What's that you're smelling of?" 
Me sniffing my jumper: "My laundry detergent, perhaps?" (It was last time).
Friend sniffing my jumper: "No, it's not that."
Me flashing my neck: "My perfume then?" 
Friend sniffing my neck: "Yeah, that's it. Which one is that?"
Me: "Oh that old thing is just one I make myself."

Seductive scents

The sense of smell sits at the top of the nose, which has direct contact with the centres in the brain that control our feelings and instincts. And some fragrances have been found to act as aphrodisiacs.

I learned about how seductive fragrances can be a long time ago. I'd bought a bottle of perfume with so-called pheromones in it, and boy did I get the attention when I wore it. Men stuck their nose towards me, smiled at me and asked about the scent - it IS after all rare a heterosexual man talk about perfume, I think.

Later I read the ingredient list of that perfume, and it turned out that it contained a lot of shit too, so I stopped using it, and instead began fiddling with making fragrances myself. And I have found a couple of formulas that seem to be working and that create the same kind of effect as the old pheromone one. One for ladies which seems to excite men, I call "Be the Queen Bee". And one for men which makes the ladies curious, I call it "Go Get the Bird". You'll find the recipes below.

Why make your own perfume?

Here’s just four good reasons for this:

  1. Because its very easy to make your very own unique fragrance entirely without toxins.
  2. Because synthetic fragrances contain hormone (endocrine) disruptors that can lead to a whole host of medical problems, including hormone imbalance, thyroid issues and other serious illnesses. 
  3. Because synthetic fragrances kick allergic reactions into high gear for many people, leading to headaches, respiratory issues and other disorders
  4. Because millions of people suffer from sensitivities to synthetic fragrance, so that tantalising scent you think you’re blessing the world with can be making life harder for some people around you. 

It's human nature to want to smell nice. And you still can by making your own with all-natural essential oils.

What is Notes in scents

Much like musical notes make up a song and various shades of colors turn into a painting, fragrance notes are necessary to make a perfume. Overall, there are three note scales that when blended together create the perfume's fragrant accord. Each of these levels, however, has its own primary purpose.
