“This is long lasting, easy to carry and discreet- you can just rub them on. Now you can carry your own personal scent just like the beauties of the olden times did such as Cleopatra, Nefertiti, Madame de Pompadour and Irene Langhorne(the original Gibson girl). Pour your blends into vintage compacts or pillboxes for a unique package to slip into a pocket or purse. Any fragrance can be given a solid form. One must bear in mind that oil-based scents will last longer. This recipe is from the book:Natural Beauty At Home by Janice Cox.”
