Some details of my concoction:
I used In Essence essential oils, some fragrant oils from New Directions and a batch of pure essential oils that I was sent from India, the brand is called Nirvana.
Composition and ratios:
25% top notes, 20% middle notes and 55% base notes mixed in Sweet Almond oil as the carrier oil in 1:1 ratio.
Top Notes = 14 drops
Bamboo, White Tea and a drop of Coconut
Middle notes = 10 drops
Lotus, Ylang Ylang
Base Notes = 30 drops
Musk, Sandalwood and I couldn't resist putting in a tiniest drop of Frankincense.
It turned out pretty well. It really smells exotic! It is a heavy floral fragrance, given the Lotus and Ylang Ylang but still soft. The bamboo and the White Tea add greenness to it. The Musk and Sandalwood add depth. I was not heavy handed with the Frankincense as it can turn the whole thing into something resinous and something that comes packed in sticks! I think this blend is very wearable and feminine.
I really need to buy some decanting supplies soon!
