They are every potent extracts of herbs and flowers. Take a tour in aromatherapy shops where you could sample various scents and choose those that suit you.
Look For joy by jean patou eau de parfum Containers
You may look around the house to search for some old bottles with tight fitting stoppers or lids. Put the old bottles in a saucepan filled with water added with some drops of dish or liquid soap. Let the bottles roll in boiling water and then drain with a towel.
If there are none, you could simply just buy new bottles in which to store your scented oil. Ideal containers are those that are dark colored so that light rays will be blocked and prevented from damaging the oil. You can also find fragrances in your garden.
If you have flowers in the yard, like the strong-smelling hyacinth or lilac, simply get about one cup of flower petals and place them in a plastic bag. Be sure there is the least possible amount of air in the bag before sealing it. Bruise the petals, but do not mash it using a mallet. Bruising will open the tiny fragrance pouches in the petals and release the scent.

To make your Eau de Joy Perfume by Jean Patou firstly, fill 2/3 of the container with your base. For bottles with narrow opening, use a funnel when pouring so that there will be no spills or you could use a fitting medicine dropper.
