Dear Blogger...

I just mixed my first fragrance. I wouldn't consider it my first official one, just me playing around. I'm getting a better feel of the smell of the few oils I own. It's a good way to familiarize myself I think, a little at a time. I put a little bit of the fragrance on the back of my hand, we'll see why the boyfriend thinks when he gets home. It's not fantastic, but it smells good. And in a few weeks in the closet hopefully it will continue to improve.

I finished Mandy Aftel's wonderful book last week, Essence & Alchemy. I knew it would be informative, but I had no idea!! There was so much useful information in there! Now my fingers are itching to start mixing. I have to keep telling myself to be patient, in due time. My boyfriend surprised me the other night with 2 glass beakers for my mixing. Now I'm working on making my first formula before I mix. It's so hard to contain myself!!
