How to weigh and dilute your perfumery materials
In this video tutorial, I show you how to make perfume using a scale instead of drops or mls. This makes your formulation more accurate and you will be able to replicate it for future fragrances. I also show how to dilute your perfume materials to 10% in perfumers alcohol to prevent wastage and so that you can add tiny amounts of strong materials without making a large batch of scent.

Hi I'm Karen Gilbert
I love sharing what I know and have the unique background of having worked both inside the fragrance industry as well as inside the natural skincare industry since 1990. I have developed and delivered training for companies as well as my own students and built 2 profitable business both on and offline. I have no affiliation with any company and I will always be 100% transparent and truthful – no fluff guaranteed! Over the years I've trained a huge variety of people from all walks of life in fragrance creation. From buyers for huge brands, fragrance professionals, retail staff, bloggers, journalists, small business owners, aromatherapists, herbalists, fashion designers, artists, accountants and the odd neuroscientist - most were complete newbies to perfumery.
