Hello all, I'm working on the recipe for my second attempt at a homemade fragrance. I've successfully completed my own version of Molecule 01 (I know easy stuff.) I'm now trying my own take on Muglers Pure Malt. The notable diffs are the pineapple note instead of the berry note in PM. I openly give credit to Jason Sparla and his superb website for providing me with the basic skeleton for an A*Men Gourmand Fragrance. I'm also using Glucam P20 to help with longevity. Here's what I have and I welcome constructive criticism:
