Article Rating:  (1 Ratings) In perfumery, alcohol is used as a preservative and to help disperse the scent. As the alcohol evaporates it sends molecules of the scent into the air. It is possible, and perfectly acceptable, to make perfume without alcohol by using a carrier oil instead. A carrier oil is any vegetable-based oil into which you blend your essential oils and other fragrances. Because they don't disperse as easily, perfume oils tend to linger on the skin longer, and smell stronger than alcohol-based perfumes.

There are lots of scented oils that are actually better than perfume. Scented oils last much longer, are cheaper than perfume, come in a lot more scents, and they have all of the popular perfume scents available. These are popular in the African American community, so if you live in a big city you can easily find them. You can also mix your own scents. Checkout this website on Scented Body Oils and maybe look at some others.
