Fragrance Blend Challenge 31


Many fragrances cross my desk in a day and I must resist running to the test kitchen to experiment. (Oh, the torture!) However, I don’t think I become truly acquainted with their blending potential. We have a lot of fragrance oils, so many I sometimes say “Oh yeah, I remember that fragrance. Do we still carry it?” I have a list of fragrances that I would love to see how others would blend them. In this challenge you may only use what is on this list, however you may blend as many fragrances as you want (You may use all if you are so inclined). There are 42 fragrances, let’s aim for 100 blends. Ready? Get set. Go!

    I’ve been experimenting with fruit and chocolate combos in my CP soaps. How about 50% Chocolate Mousse, 20% Intense Almond, 20% Wild Strawberry, and 10% Peach. Delightful!

    While I’m on the chocolate kick I’d love to do a really citrusy one with 40% Chocolate Mousse, 40% Lemon Sugar, and 20% Bitter Orange Orchid.

    Another one I am dying to try is a summer-ish fragrance with 40% Fresh Cut Grass, 20% Raspberry, 10% Coconut, 10% Enchanted Apple, 10% Rose, 10% Lilac, and 5% Sandalwood. I’ll call it “Summertime Bliss”

    This is fun! I just love all the fantastic fragrances MMS carries. I’m interested to see what everyone comes up with. Thanks for the challenge Taylor!

    I was recently gifted some MMS oils (a true blessing, I have never smelled such beautiful fragrance oils before)

    I made a blend of Rose, Sandalwood and Vanilla cream 3 days ago.

    I topped it with jasmine flowers. Anyway the first scent is very sweet and then rose comes through in the dry out.

    I am very impressed!!

    Wow! I can’t believe all of the fantastic blends everyone has come up so far. I need to get into the test kitchen to experiment with these fantastic blends. I don’t know where to start or where to put these! Hmm. I just might need to make another Learning Curve Lotion to try all of them. The problem is Andee just might ban me from making such a large batch again. Oh well, I guess this time I might have to take work home with me. 🙂

    Keep those blends coming! Monday, we will announce the winners.

    Given that I only have 5 of the 42, I won’t be able to experiment to my fullest but I’m pretty pleased with what I came up with given only 5 to work with 🙂 I have made some wonderful blends with some past MMS Fragrance oils that are fabulous. Should be getting my coolwater and honeysuckle in the mail soon with samples of others.

    Polynesian Coconut Cocktail
    Polynesian Red: 8 drops
    Coconut: 4 drops

    Orange Marmalade? Haven’t settled on a good name yet…but definitely a YUMMY scent
    Bitter Orange Orchid: 8 drops
    Honey Harvest: 10 drops

    Instant Vacation (also needs a better name! LOL)
    Jasmine: 4 drops
    Polynesian Red: 8 drops
    Bitter Orange Orchid: 1 drop

    and variation on above:
    Jasmine: 4 drops
    Polynesian Red: 8 drops
    Bitter Orange Orchid: 2 drops
    ***If I had regular Sandalwood FO I would add 1 drop of it to make this blend more sensual/exotic–could be super sexy as a perfume or lotion.
