13 ways to make your own perfume

By Hello Natural

Perfume is one of the most subjective topics there is. We aren't all born with the same sense of scent, and someone else's favorite perfume (and especially the amount they use) can be your worst nightmare.

This is often the case with store-bought fragrances: they're too strong, they irritate the skin and they're impossible to wear in summer. So why not make your own perfume that's customizable and completely unique?

Most of these DIY perfume recipes use essential oils, and there's really no easier way to get a personal perfume that will soon become your signature scent.
