Making a perfume involves collecting ingredients, extracting oils, blending, aging and quality control. Natural ingredients must have their oils extracted in order to create a perfume. Essential oil extraction can be done several ways: Oils can be obtained through solvent extraction, steam distillation, expression, Enfleurage (a process that squeezes out the oils) or Maceration.
Perfume Production Process
Raw Material Pretreatment
Solvent Extraction: This method is performed by putting plants into big, rotating drums. The plants are then covered with petroleum ether or benzene.
Steam Distillation: With steam distillation, the natural materials are placed in a still. The materials sit in the still until they are extracted. The resulting substance is then passed through tubes, where it is cooled and then liquefied.
