Manufacturing Your Own Cologne

Nov 21, 2007
Perfumes have been around for countless years. What people tend to forget is there are diverse types of these that are being sold in the marketplace. The really elementary ones are known as body splashes while those that last a little longer on the skin are the Eau De Cologne and the Eau de Toilette.

The Eau de Cologne is generally considered to be a light perfume. There are a lot of manufacturers that offer this however those who don't wish to spend lots of cash can settle for some home fashioned concoctions. Here are some good examples to try for yourself.

The first blend is called Lemon Spirit. The ingredients are composed of lemon grass, lavender and lime essential oils. Once these are mixed together with some vodka and shaken well, the mixture ought to be stored for three weeks.

When the time has passed, the container must be brought out and at least a cup of distilled water should be added to the cologne and then kept again for a further week. This ought to be shaken daily and then transferred into a container for immediate usage.

Another example of an Eau De Cologne is called Peace. The only difference between this and the other recipe is the essential oils that are used. For this mixture, you will need Bergamot, Cedar wood and Frankincense.

After the oils are mixed, distilled water and vodka are added next. This should then be put aside for more than a month, which is much longer than the other type of perfume so that everything can settle before this can be distributed and used.

The process of producing colognes isn't that different compared to body splashes and Eau de Toilettes. This is as it still needs the three basic notes namely base, middle and top note to put everything together and then requires some volume of alcohol and water to help it tie-up.

The completed product must be placed in a closed container so that the contents don't evaporate.

There are other recipes of Eau De Colognes leaving out the two mentioned. By doing some digging and with a little researching, the hobbyist will be able to learn everything necessary. Those who are bold enough may even attempt creating one that could be very salable in the industry.

Those who would wish to go into business should think carefully about pricing and packaging. It will be a good idea to compute the cost of the materials to determine how large a markup can be added.

When this is completed, the individual can either offer this to someone who will act as a distributor for the item or sell it straight to the consumer. Those who have sufficient capital can rent some space whilst those who do not may still start out from home and can try this online.

Succeeding in the perfume industry is certain not to happen overnight. This is due to the fact that a lot of companies have already been doing this for years therefor it will take some time to establish the name. The best thing to do is to find out which are the salable ones and go on to make them in larger quantities. A certain portion of the budget ought to also go into research and development insofar as an entrepreneur cannot usually rely on old recipes from a book.

The only way for them to stand out is to make new ones so they will be different from the other similar cologne already being offered in the marketplace.
