This lesson guides you in using the Fragrance Formulator Winter Blending Set to create your own unique bottles of fragrance. We have provided blending suggestions to kick-start your creativity.
Here's everything you need to get started.

Materials and Ingredients:

  • Fragrances: Mint, Champagne, Chocolate, Raspberry, Balsam Pine, and Vanilla
  • Blending binder
  • 50 blotter sticks
  • Pig paper or paper towels
  • 7 droppers
  • ML beakers
  • Bottles for your finalized fragrance blends


NOTE: If you are making these fragrances for products that will be sold, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet and gloves. We also recommend a clean apron and workspace.
  1. Label your blotter sticks using a pen. Write Mint on eight blotter sticks. Repeat with Champagne, Chocolate, Raspberry, Balsam Pine, and Vanilla. Write Blending Blinder on the remaining two sticks. (Shortcut: Use printed labels instead.)
  2. Layout the blotter sticks on pig paper or paper towels to protect your workspace.
  3. Using a dropper, squeeze one drop of mint fragrance onto all mint blotter sticks. Using clean droppers, drop each additional fragrance oil and blending binder to corresponding blotter sticks.
  4. Test out fragrance blends by selecting ten blotter sticks and fanning them by your nose. Swap out sticks to perfect the scent with various aromas and ratios. Write down your favorite smells by noting how many sticks of each were used to make the scent.

  1. Finalize your scent combination.
  2. Calculate how many millimeters are needed to create a two-ounce bottle of your custom scent by multiplying the number of sticks by 6. For example, if your scent is 5 sticks Champagne, 4 sticks Vanilla and 1 stick Balsam Pine, you would need 5x6=30 ml Champagne fragrance, 4x6=24 ml Vanilla fragrance and 1x6=6 ml Balsam Pine fragrance.
  3. Using droppers, measure the quantities in step six into a beaker and then pour into one amber bottle.
  4. Choose three more scents to create three more bottles. (We chose to make Sleigh Day, Winter Wonderland, Vanilla Snowflake and Chocolate Covered Raspberries.)
  5. Label new fragrance bottles with the name of the custom scent.
  6. Use new fragrance blends in your next soap or cosmetic recipe!
