Have you wanted to make your own perfume, something that smells like your ideal fragrance with just the right notes, but never got the time (or resources) to give it a shot? Well, there's no better time than now. We'll say it again, the lockdown/self-quarantine days are a good time to experiment with beauty DIYs. As for the resources, read on to find out more.

In stores, a good quality perfume can cost a couple of thousands, but you can make one at home for a fraction of the price. Also, most perfumes in the market are loaded with toxic ingredients and chemicals to make them last longer. When you make your own perfume at home, you'll be more involved in the process and mindful about the ingredients you put in. Let's dive right in, shall we!

And just like that, you made a DIY floral perfume! Yup, it's that easy!

If you're game, I'd like to tell you how to make a hair perfume too, and it's super easy! I would recommend that you make a small quantity first before getting to a whole batch. Experiment with different essential oil combinations to find your signature scent. A few other essential oil duos you can try are - lavender and vetiver, sweet marjoram and orange, lemon and tea tree, and cedarwood and rose. Feel free to test and try as many scents as you like. A DIY, at the end of the day, is all about experimenting and customising a product that matches your tastes. I can't wait for you to give these blends a shot!
