When you start blending your perfume you need a small ceramic bowl and a toothpick. Few sorts of oils where you take care of having one from every Base, Middle and Top. Beginning with 6-10 sorts is quiet enough. You should make very small amounts at first when you dont know how it will be and be very careful to write everything down.

A good oil consists of every three notes. The combination between notes could be 3:2:1 (top:middle:base) but doesn’t necessarily have to be that. The experience you gather with time will tell you how you like to have your blend. It is also important to remember that no perfume scents the same on two persons. Perfume becomes individual on every and each. But of course you can often recognize the scent even though it may be slightly different when someone else is using it.
