You can use these items to create perfumes!

Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town features a wide variety of machines that players can craft and place on their farm. These machines allow players to turn resources like logs and ores (among many others) into other useful objects.

One of the game’s many machines is the Essence Maker, which can be used to turn flowers, bouquets, and fruits into different kinds of essences (these can then be turned into perfumes).

Once you unlock the Essence Maker crafting recipe, you can create one of these machines using three Silver Ingots and five Glass.

From there, you can insert flowers, wildflowers, bouquets, and fruits into the Essence Maker to have them automatically turned into essences. Flowers will become Floral Essences, fruit will become Fruit Essences, and bouquets will become Bouquet Essences.

It’s important to note that only certain kinds of flowers, bouquets, and fruit can be inserted into the Essence Maker. For instance, the only fruits you can insert into the machine are fruit grown on trees (like lemons and apples). Fruits that can be grown in a field (like watermelons) can’t be used in the Essence Maker.

Similarly, only certain kinds of wildflowers can be used in the Essence Maker. That is, wildflowers like the “Pink Cat Flower” are actually considered “plants” by the game, so they can’t be turned into Essences. The only flowers you can use in the machine are those that are like crops (some of these will appear at random around your farm, which technically makes them wildflowers).

Finally, you can’t insert an Earth Concerto bouquet into the Essence Maker, since this bouquet is made of wildflower “plants” rather than true flowers. 

You only need to insert a single flower, bouquet, or fruit into the Essence Maker to create an essence, and different objects may become more than one essence when they’re processed. For instance, a Petunia will become two Floral Essences when placed in the Essence Maker, while a Tulip will only become a single Floral Essence.

The process of turning flowers and fruit into essences takes four in-game hours to complete, while transforming a bouquet takes 10 in-game hours. If you want to create multiple kinds of essences at the same time, you can build multiple Essence Makers for your farm.

Depending on how many Essence Makers you create for your farm, it may take you a while to turn all of your flowers and fruits into essences. That being the case, you may want to check out the ChargePlay Clutch from HyperX. It can extend your device’s battery life so you can play Pioneers of Olive Town (and other Switch games) for a longer period of time before having to charge your Switch.
