This is another DIY perfume recipe inspired by a Mandy Aftel’s book called Essence and Alchemy.
Oriental and relaxing, it remembers SPA cosmetics scent and can be considered as a DIY unisex fragrance.
It contains labdanum, a powdery base note that can be bought an absolute. In order to be able to use it, you should take 1,25 g of labdanum absolute and dilute it in 3,75 g of alcohol. Then, pour it in a 5 ml bottle and stir. Labdanum is very intense, so you’ll only need 2 drops in this DIY perfume recipe.
