Girls could make their own perfume with scent sticks you put in the perfume maker along with water and just a few cranks of the perfume maker. My favorite scent was Gardenia.

I had a Barbie Perfume Maker and I can't remember all of the fragrances. Strawberry, Lilac and Gardenia are all I can remember although there were five. An old picture I have shows one of the perfume bottles with a picture of lemons and limes. Was there a citrus scent also?

The lemon & lime was a fragrance called Spring Fresh. I have all 5 sticks but one is missing a sticker; Strawberry, Gardenia, Spring Fling, Lilac (missing sticker) & the 5th just says Barbie....maybe you could mix & make your own fragrance? - August 04, 2008 - Report this comment

I too had the perfume maker. I can still smell the Gardenia scent. I played with that thing until it fell apart, as was the case with all my Barbies and accessories!

I had a perfume maker and loved the Gardenia scent. My daughter is 6 now and into perfume and lipgloss. I really wish they still made the perfume maker because I would love to give her one. I just know she would love crafting her own scents as much as I did!

I had the perfume maker too. I think the 5th scent was my favorite 'tea rose'.

I remember giving all of my family members perfume that I made for Christmas one year. Unfortunately for them, I liked to "mix" the scents and create new ones. My dad wouldn't wear his....I don't know why?

I LOVED this! Gardenia was my favorite as well. I was so sad when the little scent sticks dissolved from using it so much!

Yesterday while cleaning out mum's storage shed I found my old Barbie Perfume Maker in it's original box with all the original perfume sticks, some bottles and boxes, I had forgotten all about it certainly didn't expect the orginal box! Fragrances were gardenia, spring fresh, strawberry, rose petals and the "barbie" fragrance. I will post a picture.

I have a Barbie Perfume Maker too! My dad found it in the wardrobe and brought it to me. There are no pieces missing and I still have the box. I am thinking of selling it on ebay.

I'm always looking for this ebay. A number of years ago, I saw it but didn't purchase it. I wish I did because I don't see it on ebay now. Love this perfume maker. I
