Our perfumery alcohol is USP Grade NOT Technical grade.

Perfumery Alcohol, or Specially Denatured Alcohol (SDA) 40B. SD alcohol has additives, namely bitrex, which is odour-less but renders the alcohol undrinkable.

Most commercially-prepared quality perfumes utilize perfumer’s alcohol in their formulations. Perfumery alcohol is a “fixative” for natural essential oils and man-made ingredients in the event that the perfumes must sit for months on a retail shelf.

Using Perfumery Alcohol


  • Distilled water
  • Perfumery alcohol
  • Coffee filters
  • Strainer
  • Glass bottles with stoppers
  • Dropper
  • Funnel
  • Wooden spoon
  • Non-metal bowl
  • Essential Oils

1) Pour the perfumery alcohol into the bowl. Add the essential oils one drop at a time into the alcohol, stirring slowly after each addition. Make sure that you stir slowly, but long enough to completely disperse the oils.

2) Allow the blend of oils and alcohol to stand undisturbed for 48 hours.

3) Add the distilled water. Stir it slowly until it is completely dispersed.

4) Place the mixture in a cool, dark place where it won’t be disturbed for at least three weeks. This will allow the perfume to mature. Let your blend age. The longer the better!

5) Filter the resulting pure perfume through a coffee filter to remove any sediment that may have formed. Bottle your perfume into glass bottles with a stopper.

6) Enjoy it as you would any commercial perfume.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with a fragrance recipe. Learning how to make your own fragrances is as much about experimentation as about following recipes. Just keep a notebook of everything you do so that if you do discover how to make the perfect perfume, you can duplicate the results. Remember that one less or one more drop of an essential oil can change the fragrance of a perfume entirely.

Parfumerie Alcool, ou particulièrement dénaturé alcool (SDA) 40B. L’alcool SD a des additifs, à savoir le bitrex, qui est inodore, mais rend l’alcool imbuvable.
La plupart des parfums de qualité préparés commercialement utilisent l’alcool du parfumeur dans leurs formulations. L’alcool parfumé est un «fixatif» pour les huiles essentielles naturelles et les ingrédients artificiels dans le cas où les parfums doivent s’asseoir pendant des mois sur une étagère de détail.

  • Utilisation de l’alcool parfumerie
  • Équipement
  • Eau distillée
  • Alcool parfumé
  • Filtres à café
  • Crépine
  • Bouteilles en verre avec des bouchons
  • Compte-gouttes
  • Entonnoir
  • Cuillère en bois
  • Bol non métallique
  • Huiles essentielles

1) Verser l’alcool parfumé dans le bol. Ajouter les huiles essentielles une goutte à la fois dans l’alcool, en remuant lentement après chaque ajout. Assurez-vous que vous remuer lentement, mais assez longtemps pour disperser complètement les huiles.

2) Laisser reposer le mélange d’huiles et d’alcool sans être dérangé pendant 48 heures.

3) Ajouter l’eau distillée. Remuer lentement jusqu’à ce qu’il soit complètement dispersé.

4) Placer le mélange dans un endroit frais et sombre où il ne sera pas dérangé pendant au moins trois semaines. Cela permettra au parfum de mûrir. Laissez votre mélange vieillir. Plus c’est long!

5) Filtrer le parfum pur résultant à travers un filtre à café pour enlever tous les sédiments qui peuvent avoir formé. Mettez votre parfum en bouteille dans des bouteilles en verre avec un bouchon.

6) Profitez-en comme vous le feriez n’importe quel parfum commercial.

N’ayez pas peur d’expérimenter avec une recette de parfum. Apprendre à faire vos propres parfums est autant sur l’expérimentation que sur les recettes suivantes. Il suffit de garder un carnet de tout ce que vous faites afin que si vous découvrez comment faire le parfum parfait, vous pouvez dupliquer les résultats. Rappelez-vous qu’une goutte de moins ou une goutte de plus d’une huile essentielle peut changer le parfum d’un parfum entièrement.

  1. Tuan

    Bought it to make perfume. Works as expected. Would buy again.

  2. Michelle

    This is a very difficult item to find and I am so pleased that you carry it.

  3. Hannah

    It is FANTASTIC to be able to find this within Canada!!!! The price is great, too. This alcohol is light and not drying to skin. It is odorless and is a perfect base for any essential oils you like to blend. I can finally sell a special meditation essence I make that people have been wanting to buy thanks to this product.

  4. CHAD

    This stuff is amazing! Great price too! Glad it’s finally available in Canada. Along with some essential oils I’ve made some top notch cologne!

  5. Amalie

    I am new at making perfumes and thank goodness for SB as I cannot find this alcohol anywhere!! What a great price too!

  6. Philippe

    I’m so glad I found this here! Drinking alcohol is heavily taxed and not an economical option to use in products not intended to be consumed. This fits the bill and at a great price! As with all solvents the smell is harsh at first, but once it evaporates after a few seconds you are left only with the essences you dissolved in it.

  7. Julian

    Great company to do business with. Finding perfumer alcohol in Canada is nearly impossible and I am very thankful that you stock it. My alternative is Everclear, and it is heavily taxed, so more expensive. The shipping was quick. quintescential.ca

  8. Allison A

    Thank you so much for carrying this hard-to-find product. I have been eagerly waiting for this item, as my greatest interest in essential oils is for perfume making. I am starting to experiment now, and I am greatly hoping that at least one of my “creations” is exactly what I want!

  9. elizseto (verified owner)

    great product and good pricing, but be prepared to wait a few weeks for delivery

    • Susan Jenkins

      Yes, unfortunately, during this Covid-19 period, this product is in high-demand and wait periods are longer.

  10. Michael Andrews (verified owner)

    Perfect, from service to delivery – this company got everything right. The bad reviews on Google are erroneous and defamatory. Don’t believe any review (other than mine). LOL
