I've been thinking about trying this with the essential oil coop going on.
What fragrance(s) do you use? What kind of carrier do you use?
I'm a diehard vanilla fan, any reccomendations??
(I loved the bodyshop vanilla oil but they discontinued it :(

Funny you post this, I am actually in the process of making my own perfume of sorts now. I love vanilla scent too. I am making a lavender vanilla scent. This is my first attempt at it so I don't even know for sure if it will work but here's what I have going -
I bought a vanilla bean from Whole Foods that came in a glass jar. I used the bean to make vanilla milk (bean into powdered milk and let sit for weeks) for my DD but the scent was still very strong in the jar the bean came in. I have an herb garden with several varieties of lavender growing so I filled the jar with sprigs from different plants and then covered them with jojoba oil. I have had the capped jar sitting in the sun for 2 days now and a couple times a day I shake it. I opened it and strained it this morning and replaced the herbs. It is smelling wonderful! After another round or two of changing the herbs in the oil I will eventually strain it off and store it in a clean amber colored dropper bottle. I am just washing up one I already had on hand. I will let you know if the scent holds. If so, I bet you could do this same thing just using a vanilla bean covered in oil.

the simpliest way is to take a lip gloss type roller bottle and fill it with an oil of your choice and add a couple drops of fragrance/essential oil. put the top on and you have a rollon perfume. :thumbsup:
