How To Make Perfumes - The Materials Needed

Before we proceed with steps on how to make perfumes, let's be familiarized with the materials and ingredients.

Equipment Needed
  • A weighing scale or a kitchen scale ( up to 10 kg depending on how much you will make)
  • Plastic cups
  • A stirring rod
  • A small beaker
  • A 1,000 ml beaker
  • A volumetric flask

    Where to get all of these equipment?
     I recommend to get all of the equipment above in Bambang, Manila Philippines. Bambang is known for suppliers of laboratory equipment. You can buy there equipment which are very cheap, plus there are lots of suppliers to choose from. Just take the LRT 1 and drop off to Bambang Station.

     Raw Materials Needed

    Fragrance Oils of Designer Scents - these are pure essential oils combined to produce the scent of famous designer scents.

    Perfume Grade Alcohol - a neutral alcohol which is combined with fragrance oils in perfume making.

    Fixative - these are natural or synthetic substance used to reduce the evaporation rate and improve stability when added to perfume. This allows the final product to last longer while keeping its original fragrance

    These are just suppliers that I know where you can get wholesale fragrance oils and other raw materials in perfume making, but you can search for more in the internet. All of their fragrances smell good. It's up to you which supplier to choose- you might consider the following factors:

    - Price
    - Reliability
    - Access and location
    - Quality

    Now that you have all the information about materials needed on how to make perfumes, you can now decide what and where to purchase.
