This smells great! Finally, the waiting period is over today and my lemon cologne is ready! It smells wonderful! I used jasmine essential oil as a substitute for lavender and lemon essential oil instead of lemon grass. Also, I used surgical spirit instead of vodka. I'm going to gift this to a very very special friend on the upcoming festival(on 31st)of Ganesh Chathurthi. Till then, I will be storing this in the refrigerator, so that when he applies it, it'll be cold and really nice. It really smells wonderful! Thank you for sharing the recipe.
