No i was being straightforward. I apol if this is not the best site - perhaps someone can tell me a better one.
I am interested un backward engineering many fragrances (for personal blends), because of several reasons. 1-i feel that many modern scents smell the same, like bugspray or just too strong and too elaborate. 2-i recently found some colognes in a families (deceased) house i had to clean out that were from the 1960s-70s (mostly Chypres/Oriental Florals) and liked them, but many are no longer made. One was called Apollo by Revlon or some other 'makeup' company like Loreal, etc (a relative tossed it when before came back to grab it). Its not the same Apollo made now by another comp. It was a Chypre, that dried down with a nice soft musk--AWESOME, the date on it was 1975. 3- i recently smelled an Oil blend at a Theater that reminded me of COMET or AJAX , plus Dirt, and patchouli. I can do the Dirt and Patchouli notes, but need to figure out the Comet notes.
Others i am looking to do are:
-Nippon Kodo Aloeswood Incense (which also has Vetiver, Patchouli..)
-Chandrika sandal soap
Why soaps? Something there seems to GLUE and TAME the notes in a natural way (i am guessing the Alkaline in them like Bleach, Borax or Lye).
I didnt mean to insult , i just figured i needed professional advice as i know little on deciphering the notes.
