How is an eau de toilette made?
An eau de toilette is a precise and balanced blend of several fragrance notes. It takes 10 years of studies and training to learn about fragrance oils and their compatibility. It is not enough to take two smells you like and mix them together: the result is almost always disappointing.
For making an eau de toilette or making an eau de cologne, you will need an in-depth knowledge of chemistry. For your DIY perfume recipe, you need to use the right amounts of the various ingredients that work together to create a pleasant and balanced scent and then stabilizing this fragrance so that it lasts on the skin for several hours. Add few drops of essential oil to carrier oil and perfumer's alcohol in a perfume spray bottle if you want to make your DIY perfume at home. It is vital to measure the different ingredients precisely to ensure that the skin is perfumed but protected.
