Personal Perfumery DIY with Darby Smart

I knew you could get makeup, and food, and clothes sent to you in boxes – and now with Darby Smart, there’s DIY crafting projects for delivery!

The incredibly sweet people over at Darby Smart sent me one of their mystery crafting boxes, and inside was a make your own perfume kit! I love projects like this, it’s so fun making something you can immediately use; plus perfumery has always fascinated me.

They provided essential oils that could create two difference scent profiles based on which ones you used more. I also love that they sent two different perfume bottles, which allowed me to try both the floral profile and citrus profile. (It’s also oddly fun and satisfying using a dropper)

I really enjoyed this project, even if it was a little tricky. When mixing the oils, there were several times where I was unhappy with the smell I’d created; so I had to be an olfactory detective and figure out what I needed more of to create a more desirable scent. It’s really satisfying though when you finally get it to a place you like!
