Custom Perfume Recipe for Valentine’s Day
© Rebecca D. Dillon
.5 oz Cyclomethicone
.12 oz. fractionated coconut oil
.05 oz. fragrance oil of choice
This custom scented perfume recipe will yield four 4 mL perfumes for a total of four “You’re Scent-sational!” printable Valentines cards.
It’s important to not that the usage rate of the fragrance oil for this perfume recipe is 8%. Therefore you’ll need to choose a fragrance oil that is safe at 8% when used in perfumes. Typically you can refer to the manufacturer or supplier for this information. For some fragrance oils, you can use an even higher percentage fragrance if desired for a stronger, longer lasting scent. However, you may need to lower the amount of fragrance oil used if the maximum usage rate is lower.
To create more than four custom scented perfume printable Valentines cards, simply double or triple the recipe as needed. For smaller amounts and depending on the scale you are using, you may need to convert the ounce measurement to a gram, which is a much smaller unit of measure.
For this customer scented perfume recipe I used a Rose Cognac Sugar fragrance oil. You can safely use up to 33% of this fragrance in your perfume spray recipe if desired. I also really like this Chocolate Orchid fragrance oil for this recipe, however, you’ll need to reduce the amount of fragrance oil to .03 oz. (5%) with this scent. (If you prefer to use essential oils, use at a maximum amount of 2%.)
Using a digital scale, weigh out all of the ingredients and combine in a glass container. Stir well to combine, then using a transfer pipette, evenly fill four 4mL glass vials with sprayers. You can buy these containers in bulk at SKS Bottle & Packaging where I found mine.
Tightly screw the sprayer cap onto each vial.
Now download and print the PDF for my printable Valentines cards here. You should print your Valentines cards onto cardstock paper.
This printable Valentine’s Day card features clip art from Old Cauldron Design, specifically from this Valentine’s Day collection. If you prefer to use a different clip art image, simply purchase the clip art you’d like to use and follow my tutorial for creating custom soap labels. It’s the same concept, only the sizes and paper type used are different.
Once you’ve printed out the desired number of printable Valentines cards onto cardstock, place a perfume vial onto the Valentines. Use a exacto knife to cut two small slits on either side of the vial. Now push ribbon through the slits on either side from the back of the Valentine and tie the ribbon on the front of the card around the perfume vial. Repeat for each printable Valentines cards you’re creating.
All that’s left is to gift your Valentines to your best friends and other favorite people!
