I'm trying something new.
I have always romanticized the idea of being a botanist, a floral designer, or anything working along plants, especially ones that smell delicious.
I figure the closest I can get is making perfume!
Being a Perfumist sounds quite romantic, doesn't it? I do not expect this to really be a big deal within my shop, but it has been something I have been eager to try since I started making candles. Originally, I wanted to make perfumes to match the candle scents I was making, but I have no real gauge to determine if that would be wise. Also, my candle scents are always changing or I'm making new blends so that would be messy anyway.
As for now, I have three scents available:
- Earl Grey Tea, scented with Bergamot and Orange Peel Essential oils.
- Patchouli, which is just pure hippie musk, 100% Patchouli Essential Oil.
- Summer Garden, scented with Lavender, Rose, Lemon, Basil, and Rosemary Essential Oil.
I was most excited with Summer Garden, being that as I was learning about what scents are okay and not okay to mix, this one apparently breaks those rules. However, if you love the smell of a garden on a breezy summer day, this scent mimics just that. It's a smell I have been exposed to a lot this summer since my partner began his farming business and my mother has been tending to her flower gardens. Everything is in full bloom by the beginning of July! I think it's a much more accurate smell of summer for those of us who do not live near a beach.
Each bottle is a 8mL dark amber roll-on glass bottle. I chose these specifically because they are a good size, and the perfume and scent lasts a long time in this particular bottle.
I'm very excited to give this new hobby a try (not that I'm looking for new hobbies, I guess I just like being busy). If this sounds at all interesting, there are links above to each scent on Etsy!
Thank you again for stopping by!
