amanda Posted September 4, 2014 Share Posted September 4, 2014 (edited) Since the last two times I received advice in this forum on proportions for blending fragrances were spot on, I figured I'd go ahead and see if anyone has any tips on how to make a good pumpkin spice latte fragrance. I was thinking I would need to use (all CS) pumpkin pie, cinnamon stick, fresh coffee, and (maybe?) vanilla. My first go at it was 50/50 pumpkin pie and fresh coffee. But it wasn't pumpkin-y or spicy enough. And it had a bit of a burnt smell (I feel like the vanilla might mellow that out? Am I way off base thinking that?). I like venturing into the world of blending my own fragrances, but I feel like I'm just burning through so much wax, fragrance, time, and money with all this new testing. So any guidance would definitely be appreciated. The good news is that I am getting really good at predicting a starting point for what size wick to use with 6006 in my jelly jars! All the experience and trial and error is really paying off. The last few scents I tested, I was able to correctly predict if I'd need to wick up or down. Potentially pertinent info:Igi 60068oz jelly jarsCD wicks7-8% fragrance loadThanks in advance Edited September 4, 2014 by amanda 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
