    My business was inquired for a car fragrance product. The product is a fragrance oil or essential oil soaked wood. Me knowing nothing about formulation I did what I thought it will work. I soaked the wood in fragrance oils and glycerin for 24 hours. While the wood smells fantastic it does not give away any scent when I put it in a car. It would be great if somebody could advice me or point me to the right direction what I have to do? What I need to add to the oil to actually give away it’s scent. Or do I need to find a fragrance chemist to create the formula for me? Thanks in advance for all responses!

    You should talk to your fragrance manufacturer. At the very least they will be able to guide you on the types of fragrances that are suitable for these products. There is a reason that the fragrances in these types of products are limited because only certain fragrances have the qualities you are looking for.

    I haven’t made anything like this but I assume you would also probably need some sort of slow evaporating solvent. Maybe look to formulas for reed diffusers. They might give you some suggestions on solvents.
