How do I make stuff that smells nice?

Does there exist a reference similar to The Flavour Bible, but for mixing scents instead of flavours?

I am looking for a reference (book/chart/website) that will give me a basic understanding of how to combine scents for things like homemade candles or soap. For example:
- Specific Scent/Oil A smells nice when combined with Specific Scent/Oil B
- Scent category X smell best when combined with Scent category Y, and here are some examples of each category
What I am not looking for, and what I am mostly finding on Google:
- X essential oil will make your heart chakra vibrate
- Y essential oil will help you conquer your headaches/depression/addiction through aromatherapy
Many thanks, Hivemind :)
