By Philip Goutell, for Lightyears, Inc.
Moonfaire is one of my own fragrances, created in part thanks to the PerfumersWorld Foundation Course, which started me on the journey of developing original scents, and in part thanks to Creating Your Own Perfume With A 1700 Percent Markup! which has led me through the production work for all my own fragrances.
Creating Your Own Perfume With A 1700 Percent Markup! teaches how to create fragrances without any personal involvement with the raw materials of perfumery -- the aroma bases, essential oils, the sharp as a tack synthetics, the powders and crystals and resins that take fluid form when blended with an appropriate solvent.
Moonfaire, like the other offerings at my PGLightyears.com retail site, was developed, by me, using those building blocks, step-by-step, block by block until we (the raw materials and me!) arrived at the scent I was seeking.
Sales of a personal creation are gratifying but being able to execute your own artistic vision is beyond thrilling.
Should you wish to embark on a personal journey into fragrance creation, there is no better starting point than the home study PerfumersWorld Foundation Course. It can be purchased through this website or directly from PerfumersWorld.
