Perfumers World ~ Perfumery Glossary
The definitions here are geared towards their general usage in the perfumery industry.
* Please Note:
Botanical Perfumes or Personal Scent:
You are blending with all natural materials. Once your blend "marries," add either carrier oil or perfumer's alcohol to assist when applying to your skin.
The beauty in the creation of your own perfume or "personal scent" is the knowledge that the ingredients are all natural, NOT synthetic chemicals (which may trigger allergies or headaches).
** Commercially manufactured perfumes are diluted at a ratio of approximately 2% raw material. The materials on this page are undiluted and are at a 100% concentration. Please be advised to use the information according to your blending teachings.
Key: O = Organic, ONC = Organic, not certified, WC = Wildcrafted
