Here at the maksey, we offer a delightful little sample size of each of our exclusive fragrances. This fun-sized fragrance experience was originally intended for one purpose and one purpose only - to help you choose which fragrances suit you best! As you’ll find in our Fragrance Discovery Kits, each fragrance has its own unique signature blend of scent notes. 

In order to truly experience the complexity and beauty of each fragrance and choose which you’d like to pursue in your product line, these little scentsational droppers come with a package of Fragrance Testing Strips for evaluating each fragrance. To learn how to evaluate your fragrances, check out our blog post Evaluating Fragrance Notes.

And although we’d created them with fragrance evaluation in mind, we’ve found that there are a wide variety of amazing uses for these tiny fragrance vials. So whether you have a large collection of samples you’d like to do something with or you’re just looking to make a test candle without breaking the bank, here’s how you can put our little 10ML’s to good use:

  • Make a Small Candle

We suggest picking up one of our metal tins to make a test candle so you can evaluate the cold throw and hot throw. One 10ML (.33 oz) will give you approximately 7% fragrance load in our 5 OZ metal tins. This is great if you plan to use 7% FO load in your line or just want to see how a fragrance performs at 7%.

  • Experiment with Perfumery
Pick up some fragrance blotter strips from our makers supplies section to evaluate each scent and practice scent blending to create your own bespoke fragrances. You’ll be surprised at the delicious combos you make!

  • Whip up Some Soap 
Pair a 10ML fragrance with one of our luxury one pound blocks of melt and pour soap base. This will give you approximately 2% fragrance load and make you 6-8 soaps! 

  • Mix Up Some Scent Sachets
Drop the oil onto our ceramic scent beads and stir until absorbed. You can then put your beads in a sachet pouch to add a little fragrance to your sock drawer, car, or bathroom or place the beads in a wax warmer for a powerful scent throw.
  • Make a Room and Body Spray 
Our glass 3.4oz spray bottles come in 4 chic colors. Mix one 10ML with our Organic + Wildcrafted Witch Hazel spray base for approximately 10% fragrance load.

  • Do Some Essential Oil Aromatherapy
Use our 10ML Essential Oils collection in any aromatherapy applications. Add a couple drops to your bath water, put a dab on your wrist and rub them together to release a scent. Just always make sure to check the skin safe percentage before applying directly to the skin!

  • Cook Up Some Wax Tarts
Tarts or melts are a great way to use up scrap wax and make the most of a 10ML fragrance. Use one 10ML per 4-5 OZ of wax for a 7% FO load.

  • Diffuse Your Favorite Scents
Grab your favorite Aura vessel and add a 10ML to our Coco Vegan or All Natural Diffuser base.

  • Hand Sanitizer
Make your own all natural hand sanitizer with our glass 3.4oz spray bottles. Mix your fragrance or essential oil 10ML with our Organic Sugarcane Alcohol spray base for approximately 10% fragrance load.

  • Have a Fragrance Party!
Round up your friends and family, grab some Fragrance Blotter Strips, and pop a bottle of wine while everyone enjoys sampling your fragrance collection. Have everyone write down what the fragrance reminded them of, what they smelled, and if they liked or disliked it. This is a great way to get consumer feedback before launching a new scent in your line!

You don’t need a lot of fragrance to make an amazing product or achieve a great fragrance throw! 10ML is all you need to make a wide variety of amazing candle, bath, and body care products so grab your old samples and get out the mixing bowls - it’s time to create!

We can’t wait to see what you’ll make with your 10 ML fragrances! Have a fun idea that’s not listed here? Shoot us a line or tag us on social @maksey

Happy Making!
