This list is intended as a starting point for aspiring DIY-perfumers into the world of synthetic molecules.
There is a great suggestion from Chris to split the purchase into 4 parts. JEBeasley added descriptions for every material listed from TGSC, find out more about any of these molecules with this search engine. Julian35 compared the list to J.C. Ellena's list.
This is the final version:
Aldehyde C12 lauric
Aldehyde C12 MNA
Aldehyde C14 (gamma Undecalactone) Peach Aldehyde
Aldehyde C16 (Ethyl Methyl Phenyl Glycidate) Strawberry Aldehyde
Aldehyde C18 (gamma Nonalactone) Coconut Aldehyde
Allyl Amyl Glycolate
Ambroxan (or other trade name)
Heliotropin (or Veratraldehyde as replacement)
Hexyl Cinnamic Aldehyde and/or Amyl Cinnamic Aldehyde
Iso Bornyl Acetate
Iso E Super
Methyl Iso Eugenol and/or Methyl Diantilis (Iso Eugenol replacements)
PADMA (Phenylacetaldehyde Dimethyl Acetal)
Phenyl Ethyl Acetate
Phenyl Ethyl Alcohol
---- Original comment that lead in the first draft ----
I think it could be great have a list as sticky. Just the most basic and versatile ones.
I have merged Chris' (from gandhajala's post) list and David's suggestions, plus my own, and alphabetized them for ease of looking up.
Please add and subtract! Let's try to keep it trim. No naturals, please. Please think twice about bases, if it is an alternative to a readily available natural, it has essentially no place here in my opinion.
Restricted materials do have a place here. Banned ones do not.
