It's My Birthday

I just strained out some botanical extracts that I've had going for months.  There were 3-orris root, balsam tolu and tonka bean.  All of them smell heavenly and I'm just dying to make some perfume!  Of course THAT won't be ready for several more weeks but I am definitely blending something up today.  I may use the balsam tolu and ronka bean.  I want something deep and mysterious.  I'm thinking vetiver, patchouli, balsam peru; some ylang ylang to give it a floral edge.  For a top note I want a good citrus oil but I can't decide between blood orange, bergamot and yuzu.  I think blood orange.  Maybe a woody note like Muhuhu or sandalwood absolute...............
