    Default deciphering ingredient lists

    I am trying to figure out what aromachemicals approximate what natural scents.

    In particular, what chemicals, if any, besides civetone are used to create the impression of civet?

    I have done a few searches but failed to turn up much; apologies if this has been covered already, and thanks in advance for any links or information.

    I am trying to avoid as many aromachemicals as possible, but do like Zatarain's Crab Boil. You might as this question in the section with the DIY'ers.

    I love aroma chemicals...I don't avoid them at all!

    Take a look through the Good Scents Company's website (I think they call them "raw materials". There will be descriptions of what chemical smells like what...but its a bit of a daunting list. Also try Perfumer's World's website.

    Thanks sofresh; I can look up the ingredients on the Good Scents lists, and that will definitely help.
