ALRIGHT GUYS, HERE IT IIIIIIIIS. MY JOSEPH CHRISTIANSEN PERFUME RECIPE!!!
Joseph Christiansen perfume recipe song.
6 wedges of the lemon…
And 4 oceans to sail…
4 vanilla cupcakes, for each kid you care for so well,
5 drops of frankincense, for Joseph, Mary, and the three wise men,
7 drops of ambergris for seven whales and seven great big continents.
If you feel like baking brownies add cacao,
If you’re feeling margaritas, add limes,
But otherwise, that’s all my friend!
The Joseph Christiansen perfume rhyme.
🎵🎶🎵(The numbers just mean drops, but I tied them to cupcakes for the children/lemon wedges to remember the number.)
Note: “ocean” or “ocean accords” can differ. Some smell like basil and neroli by Jo Malone while others are more like sea salt and wood sage, (also by Jo Malone) or incorporate subtle pines with driftwood and kelp/seaweed scents. Some people add apple, melon, freesia, or lilies to ocean smells, but for this Joseph perfume I tried to keep it mainly in the salty/citrus/woodsy family, as if it’s smell of his yacht while on the open sea. “Ocean” is as mysterious as the ocean, and despite his chipper Maple Bay persona, so is Joseph.
Perfume oils can be mixed with a carrier liquid or oil. For oil I’d use coconut if making a scented cream or solid type of perfume, but use whatever works with your skin and potentially dilute it more for subtlety or safety if you feel like you need to. For perfume, the liquid can be straight water, or for my personal twist, I did a 1:7 of Cointreau to water. It is “The Original Margarita” liquor after all.
(I feel like this also helps it evaporate a little faster, but not too fast, while also emulsifying the oils with the water better than perfume oil and water alone. Though you’d still best shake this bottle before spraying.)
Then the perfume is added in a 1:5 ratio of oils to the chosen carrier. Dilute to preference. I just picked 20% because that’s Eau De Parfum strength. Too much can be really heady though so use caution, or else you may find yourself suddenly baking cupcakes, singing Jesus songs at a youth mixer, then jumping onto random yachts, singing and strumming along to Jimmy Buffett, and then one thing leads to another and you’re raising Whale-Cthulhu from an underground demon portal in no time.
Please Employ Great Care when creating and applying perfume!
