Making your own perfume or body oils using essential oils is a lot like making music in a band or orchestra. You need base notes, middle notes and top notes for the blend to be beautiful and to smell wonderful. These notes in perfume making can be either male or female and in some cases they are for either sex so I say, if you like the way it smells – use it. Below are some essential oils in each category for you to experiment with and make your own blends.
