Steps: DIY Creamy Perfume with Amber
1- Start by putting 6 grams (0.21 oz) of shredded solid amber in a bowl.
2- Add 13 grams (0.45 oz) of beeswax.
3- Add 5 tablespoons of sweet almond oil.
4- Place the bowl in a bain-marie (hot water bath) to melt the contents. A bain-marie is done by placing the bowl in a larger pot of hot steaming water. This will gradually melt whatever is inside the bowl. As it melts, make sure to mix every now and then. Here, it takes about 5 minutes.
5- With the tip of a wooden popsicle, add a little mica powder, white color.
6- Mix well. The white mica powder gives the contents a pearly color.
7- Add 5 drops of an essential oil that you prefer.
8- Mix all the contents.
9- Pour the contents in a container.
10- Leave it to harden. Your DIY Creamy Perfume with Amber is now done!
How To Use: DIY Creamy Perfume with Amber
Now that you’ve created your exquisite DIY Creamy Perfume with Amber, it’s time to embrace the elegance and allure it offers. Follow these simple steps to incorporate your personalized fragrance into your daily routine:
- Preparation: Before using your creamy perfume, ensure your skin is clean and moisturized. The creamy texture of the perfume will blend seamlessly with well-hydrated skin.
- Application: With clean fingertips, gently scoop a small amount of the creamy perfume from its container. Remember, a little goes a long way.
- Warmth Activation: Rub the perfume between your fingertips for a few seconds. The warmth generated by your fingers will help soften the creamy texture and release the aromatic notes of amber and other ingredients.
- Target Areas: Apply the perfume to pulse points on your body, such as the wrists, neck, behind the ears, and even the crook of your elbows. These areas emit heat, which enhances the diffusion of the fragrance throughout the day.
- Gentle Patting: Instead of vigorously rubbing the perfume onto your skin, gently pat or press it onto your pulse points. This preserves the delicate scent and ensures an even distribution.
- Layering: For a longer-lasting and more pronounced scent, consider layering your creamy perfume. Apply a small amount of matching scented lotion or oil to your skin before applying the perfume.
- Avoid Over-application: Since the creamy perfume is concentrated, a small amount is sufficient. Over-application may overwhelm the senses and lead to a less enjoyable experience.
- Subtle Refresher: Throughout the day, you can reapply the perfume if desired. Since the perfume is in a solid creamy form, it’s easy to carry with you for on-the-go touch-ups.
With these steps, you can embrace the passion and elegance embodied by your DIY Creamy Perfume with Amber.
1. Long-lasting Fragrance: The creamy texture of the perfume allows for controlled application, ensuring that the captivating scent of amber lingers on your skin throughout the day. Unlike traditional liquid perfumes, the creamy formula releases its fragrance gradually, creating a longer-lasting aromatic experience.
2. Personalized Signature Scent: Crafting your own creamy perfume with amber gives you the opportunity to create a unique fragrance that complements your personality and style. By adjusting the ratios of essential oils and other ingredients, you can design a scent that resonates with you and becomes your signature aroma.

The ingredients work in harmony to provide hydration and a soft, supple feel, elevating your perfume application into a self-care ritual.
4. Travel-friendly Convenience: The solid, creamy form of the perfume makes it a travel-friendly companion. Its compact and durable packaging ensures you can carry your favorite scent with you wherever you go, ensuring you stay enveloped in elegance.
Your DIY Creamy Perfume with Amber is more than just a fragrance—it’s a fusion of elegance, passion, and personalization that elevates your everyday moments.
