Adventures in Handmade Perfuming

While I'm getting prepared for the lipstick posts, I thought I would entertain you all with a little background on what I've been up to lately.  As I've mentioned before, I create handmade perfumes--although the ingredients are not 100% all natural.  My perfume business is called Eliza Fragrances (click here to visit my Facebook page).  Lately I've been intrigued by solid perfumes, and I'm thinking it may be something I want to specialize in.  There are a lot of benefits of solid perfume, in relation to alcohol-based; they are more skin-friendly and better for the environment.  The base of these perfumes is beeswax and jojoba oil.  Below is an example of one of my solid perfumes.

'Evening in Ceylon' is a classic oriental perfume with notes of bergamot, carnation, mandarin, jasmine, amber, and vanilla.
