When it comes to taking notes, most people don’t like to stop what they’re doing (especially when in a creative groove), and take notes. When it comes to perfume blending, recording every single drop that you put in a blend is tedious. But, take it from my regretful experience that it’s the times you DON’T do this that you create the masterpieces (go figure, right?!). I always recommend that students take & keep good notes, whether it’s in a *~fancy~* perfume notebook, or a simple 3-ring binder. Find a method that works for you, and make it a habit by recording every single blend that you make. You can thank me later.
To help make the process of keeping organized notes a little easier, I’ve created a Perfume Blending Worksheet. It’s a free PDF that you can download, print, and use when blending. It can be found on our website under the RESOURCES tab, and in the section called HANDY DOCS (lots of great stuff there).
Here’s a 5-minute video that explains how I use the worksheet – with a sample EO blend that’s perfect for the holidays:
The ratios & goal number of drops for each category are totally optional, but I included it for perfumery students who are still learning how to blend.
There is a lot more I could say, but I didn’t want to make the video too long. I plan to do more videos, so if there’s an area you’d like me to expand on, just let me know.
