Note! This is not a how-to on how to make real perfume. That’s the reason behind the ironic question mark in the title. My son Bruce(8) was interested in trying to make perfume, so this post is sharing the results of our experiment.
I added the peppermint schnapps at the last minute because I thought that might help add a little bit of preservative to the mix.
Our final results? It smells like we created rose water. The liquid actually has a really nice, extremely mild fragrance. It’s weak enough that kids can spray it all over themselves and still not actually smell bad.
I think our next step is to check out some books from the library, so that we can explore the science behind making perfume for real.
