Finding Your Perfect Pure-fume


Creating the perfect pure-fume

Have you ever noticed that one perfume can smell dramatically different when applied on different people? That’s because everyone has a distinct body chemistry that reacts differently to fragrances to create a personalized perfume. For centuries, chemists and perfumers have worked to perfect fragrances that complement different body chemistries.

 

You don’t have to be a perfumer to create a fragrance for yourself. By combining and layering pure essential oils, you can create a “pure-fume” that perfectly expresses you

 

What is layering?

Layering is easy—it’s simply combining your favorite scents to create a fragrance that’s perfectly customized. 

 

By utilizing the powerful scents of essential oils, you can build a harmony of fragrance that blends with your own chemistry, creating your own unique aroma.

How to layer scents:

Every pure-fume contains a root note, a heart note, and a crown note (also known as base, mid, and top notes). The combination of these different notes together creates an aroma that’s complete and harmonious.

 

If you want to create your own pure-fume, here's how to get started: 

 

 

Start with a root note

Root notes are the foundation of your personal fragrance, underlying the other fragrances in your aromatic combination. These are usually earthy and woody. They tend to last longer, giving your aroma depth and a strong base to build on. 

 

These oils are commonly used as root notes: Myrrh, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Ylang Ylang, Frankincense, and Cedarwood.

 

Add a heart note

Heart notes, or middle notes, are the scents at the center of your perfume. They aren’t the first scents you notice, but they contribute to the core. It’s the heart notes that weave the rest of the aromas together to create something truly beautiful. Florals often make great heart notes. 

 

These oils are commonly used as heart ntoes: Lavender, Jasmine, Geranium, Neroli, Peppermint, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, Rose, Blue Lotus, and Magnolia. 

 

Finish with a crown note

Crown notes are the lightest and most noticeable aromas in your composition. They are the first scents you smell, capturing your attention before giving way to the heart and root notes. Without the beautiful crown note, your fragrance is incomplete. 

 

These oils are commonly used as crown notes: Lime, Grapefruit, Orange, Bergamot, Spearmint, Lemongrass, and Petitgrain.
