    How to Make Perfume

    In stage #7 you state to add 2 tbs distilled water but if you are making spray perfume to add more water. But how much is more? And does this recipe seperate?? I really appreciate you writing this article its easy to follow and not many people are willing to share in detail how to make something. I been trying several diff ways making a spray perfume/ body spray. I even order premade mixed bases thatt include poly20, poly 80, distilled water, peservative and thats bout it i believe (without looking it up) and they also suggest adding 1:1 ratio of fragrance/essential oil with poly20. Why add more poly20 if its in base already. But either way it turns out milky and still tries to seperate a little or i could added a tad to much FO/EO well even adding their suggested safe amount of 5% frag...

Why add more poly20 if its in base already. But either way it turns out milky and still tries to seperate a little or i could added a tad to much FO/EO well even adding their suggested safe amount of 5% fragrance 5%poly20 90% of base it is a light scent and does not last so added about 5%glycerin, 10%each Frag & poly20 (approx) and rest base mix still doesnt last any longer nd diff not strong enough it's strength is about what u wpuld expect if wearing it 24hrs. But after 10min spraying it on u its almost non existing. Then i tried 91% alcohol and apparently added to much because the alcohol was very over powering. Definitely new to perfume but love to be able to make some. Im no scientist or chemist but i would like to make some that lasts, strong scent throw, and doesnt seperate. I make several products from home (bath nd body & soaps & along with wax products) but im struggling with perfume and cant afford keep wasting my products lol.i live in a real small town where products are mainly avaliable thru online purchases. I apologize for this long winded comment but wanted to give u an idea where im at. Oh also tried 90%distilled water 5%carrier oil nd 5%FO still separates.

    does this seperate? How long does this last and how much peservative should be added? Which peservative do u suggest?how much does it make? Sorry for all questions. Also left long comment before realized i should hit the question button lol. Have a great day.

Never will spend 3 dollars in stores again! It only took me all of 5minutes tops to make! Cant wait to let my friends taste it as well ?.
