Second Cologne Attempt

    Second Cologne Attempt

    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:

    Hi Mr Ape ;-)

     

    That's a nice addition to the gourmand perfume based on the PM's Aroma accords! Thank you very much for the compliment! :) 

    Although i think Jason might be a far nephew... #LOL

     

    Did you see my Whiskey blend as well? Maybe it can give you some additional inspiration:

    https://sites.google.com/site/perfumerecipes/perfume-recipes-and-formulations/be-based-on-the-balvenie-single-malt-whisky

     

    First look at proportions 25:20:55 has nothing to worry about. I'll give it a try too! The pineapple rum accord is a nice one, i suppose along the whiskey. 

     

    Well, the most important question: how does it smell? If not exactly what you wish for, what are you looking for to modify? That will be easier for us to give advice!

     

    Best, happy perfuming,

     

    Jeroen. (a far nephew of Jason, i think). :)

    I'm very sorry about the misnaming Jeroen, I've spent too much time on your site to do that! I'm in the process of getting the last few ingredients to try this. I am indeed looking hard at your whiskey frag both in the sense of this attempt and for other ideas. The beauty of your recipes is that they provide a reliable framework to improvise on. Thanks again and I'll try to give a detailed olfactory description of this when it's done. dankk2.gif

    No probs, it's a rather difficult name to pronounce and hence to remember correctly. #LOL

    And, yes, that's exactly why i offer this formulas on my site :) keep us posted about your progress! Looking forward!

    BTW: i should keep the Glucam-P20 out on your first try; it's good with citrus, but can have unexpected effects on the intrinsic balanced accords you use. And it's no problem to add it to a small part of your diluted batch later on, might you not be satisfied with longevity. You probably want to dilute to 20%-25% perfume strength instead of 15% you do now to increase longevity. 

    Best 

    Jeroen.
