Making Cologne for Pre-Teens 2


I had been asked to make a cologne for a pre-teen boy and for a while I struggled to create a blend that wasn’t overwhelming OR inappropriate for his age. After searching for ideas of blends and testing various blends until my nose hurt, I re-discovered a scent blend in our Recipes Section. When I tested the Lightly Sandalwood blend, I was ecstatic! I’d finally found the perfect blend.

Now I could make the cologne and that was the easy part! 😉 I filled a 1 oz bottle with the scent blend to store for later use and made a 2 oz bottle of cologne to give away.

Collect needed items:

Ingredients
Cyclomethicone
Vanilla Cream Fragrance Oil
Sandalwood Fragrance Oil
Orange Essential Oil, Brazil
Equipment
Small Transfer Pipettes
1 oz Amber Glass Bottle
Bottles (I used the 2 oz Clear PET Oval Bottles, Size 20 with the Black Spray Head, Size 20.)

Recipes:

Scent Blend Recipe in Parts:
1 part Vanilla Cream Fragrance Oil
2 parts Sandalwood Fragrance Oil
5 parts Orange Essential Oil
Recipe in Milliliters to make 24 mL of Scent Blend:
3 mL Vanilla Cream Fragrance Oil
6 mL Sandalwood Fragrance Oil
15 mL Orange Essential Oil
Recipe for Cologne in Percentages:
1% Lightly Sandalwood Blend
99% Cyclomethicone
Recipe for Cologne in Milliliters for 2 fl oz:
2 mL Lightly Sandalwood Blend
58 mL Cyclomethicone

Add ingredients to bottle. Cap and shake. The cologne is ready to give away!

Once I made the cologne I needed to come up with a fun name to personalize the cologne. After all, I had created a cologne that would be unique in any locker room and it needed a unique name to stand out. As I started to brainstorm ideas for names I couldn’t think of anything that made this cologne unique. I began browsing the web and asking the guys on staff questions about cologne names. Then I discovered the artwork of Frank Frazetta and I had a sudden inspiration! The particular piece of artwork that inspired the name was of a warrior wielding a sword as he drives a odd looking snow sledge behind four polar bears. Click here to see the picture that inspired the name. This picture matched the interests of the recipient and inspired the name “Ice Warrior.”

Do you have any fun stories about making colognes, body sprays or blending scents?

I'm a twenty something soap snob. I've grown up with hand made soaps and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won't tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!

      Use essential oils according to their strength. Not all essential oils are skin safe, the same is true for fragrance oils.
