I don't mean to bump an almost 2 year old thread, but I didn't want to create a new topic when this is the only forum I have Google searched where people seem to actually know about working with FO's and incense blanks. I just had a few questions for you all as I want to make my own scents on the "punks/blanks."


- Do notes matter here? Like with perfumery the top notes, middle notes, and base notes matter. So for example, one of the scents I want to try and make is like a evil carnival/fair type scent. So say there's three FO's, one is dirt, one is cotton candy, and one is funnel cake. Could I just mix the three together to try and make what I'm going for?

- What does the DPG actually do and how much should be in the mixture?


Thanks everyone!

Yes, you can mix them up to see how it all goes together.  Some people test them on Q-tips first by dipping one end in each fragrance to get the mixture,  Not sure how that would work with 3 different FOs though.  


I am not sure about the answer for the DPG question though.  My thoughts are you need to add something to the FO to dilute it a little or the FO would not burn so well on its own.  Might be a good Google question.

DPG is a solvent that cuts the FO so it doesn't smoke when burned. Like wax is a medium for candles and tarts, DPG is a medium for incense and simmering oils. 

FO on it's own smokes something fierce from my experience. 
I just ordered myself a Incense Kit to see if it's something I like making. I usually buy mine ready to get lit. LOL
