It’s not a good idea to wait for the perfect tea scent.
A lot of people think they can just pick out a scent to smell, but they don’t have to, according to the fragrance expert and perfume aficionado, Laura K. Miller.
“People don’t necessarily want to do this, but people don’t want to spend time and money on this,” Miller told Mashable.
“It’s like, ‘Why should I spend time in the bathroom?’
It’s really a luxury that’s very expensive, but it’s also very rewarding.”
If you’re trying to make a tea scent for a special occasion, Miller suggests a scent that’s just right for you.
The best way to do that is to find a scent with a very specific scent profile, which includes citrus, woodsy, and musky notes.
This way, you’re more likely to identify it with your scent preferences.
“When you’re going through the fragrance process, you want to pick the scents that will work for you and have the characteristics that you’re looking for,” Miller said.
“If you want something a little more delicate, or a little warmer, then you can go for something like the floral notes.”
Miller says she has found a handful of tea scorsions that work for her.
One is called Tea Scents of the World, which she says smells like “tea” when you put it in a glass of milk.
It’s also available at Target and Whole Foods.
The other is called Coffee Scents by Lulu, which smells like tea in the morning.
Miller said the tea scotch scent she tried works best for her, because she likes to put it on her coffee.
“You want a scent where it’s not overpowering,” Miller explained.
“You want something that’s a little bit on the nose and a little touchy.”
To make a perfume that works for both your scent and your body, Miller said it’s best to find an item that smells like the tea you want.
“Then, once you get to the scent, the next step is to smell it and then pick out the scent that matches that scent.”
For instance, Miller recommends using tea scoals that have a tea flavor that’s similar to a tea.
“I use a little tea scone that’s not as much citrus or as much woodsy or as fruity, but I also like to have something that I could put on my coffee and then, just like that, it’s kind of a neutral, neutral fragrance,” Miller added.
If you prefer a slightly floral scent, Miller advises finding an item like a rose scone, or the scent of a rose petal.
These are also great for women who want a slightly more feminine scent.
“If you find something that matches your fragrance and your fragrance is floral, then it can be really, really beautiful,” Miller advised.
If you don’t find the scent you’re searching for, or if you’re not a fan of a particular scent, there are a number of other things you can try, like adding an infusion or other floral or musky scents to your perfume.
