It's a terribly hard material to master. Some salycilates smooth it out though. Try a 1% dilution first. Hexenyl Cis 3 works wonders withit.
Could also try some Choya Nakh in low dilution 1-3% . Very briny/beachy (seashells)
Celery Ketone, Precyclemone B, Helional, Adoxal, Iso Jasmone B11, floralozone could be potentials
Look me up if ever in town and need a guide. There are some great spots locally to pick some. What area did you grow up in? I am actually just outside of Orlando.
oops. wrong forum. please move to DIY
I am looking for a lemon note to add to an incense I have been working on. I have used Lemon oil, Litsea, Lemongrass, citral et al with no success. Although I can smell it present in the blend, it...

Cerruti 1881 is heavy on the Geranium to my nose.
The "S" in SCO2 stands for "Supercritical"

Buy every musk you come across that you can afford.

The New Caledonia is gorgeous. I use a few synthetics to turn up the volume a bit though.
Sounds like you need a crimp tool.
Definitely not safe. Megaphone mostly for me. Sometimes I like to tell the world :P
WLA are very reputable. Highly recommended and great to work with. (not affiliated in any way, just a client for many years.)
Welcome to Basenotes! I am sure others will chime in, but a quick search using the "perfumers search" resulted in follows.
I personally use honey absolute.
eden botanicals has some good amber blends. They are not usable in alcohol based perfumes. For that, you have to create it.
Mitsouko - yes
Coriolan - a cloak and dagger fragrance
Derby (current) - quiet luxury
Shalimar edc - anytime
Habit Rouge edc - a quick affair, yet satisfying
Pandit. My tribute to the great Ravi Shankar.
