    Default Come up with a perfume that *should* exist

    Outline for us a juice you'd love to see. Here's one I just came up with:


    Top: Ginger, lime, anise, cumin
    Body: Vetiver, molasses
    Base: Leather, burnt hair

    Burnt hair? Burnt hair?! That's one of the most appalling smells in the spectrum! you say. Well, yes. But I think, combined with other stuff, it would instead form the base of an animal, creamy mustiness I'm positive would execute well.

    My perfume's name? Tar. This isn't an attempt to recreate the material olfactorily, but to exploit its connotations. Sticky, treacly, fumey, viscous. I suppose you'd classify it as a woody-gourmand. Definitely not for summer/spring.

    (Surely there must be a similar existing thread, but it'd be a bitch to find.)

    War.
    The smell of war. War has been a civilization engine, we can tell history through war.
    Fire, heat, gun powder, raw steel, leather boots, dust, soil, blood, mud, jet fuel, smoke of all sorts, swords crashing ... victory, defeat.

    Because in the last decade are launching a terrible number of supersweets, vanillesques, gourmands, and cheap-candy-store fragances (yes, I hate them), a new twist in the genre: Chocolate, milk, cointreau, vanilla, cinnamon, caramel... 0% alcohol, and made with ALL COMESTIBLE materials. Thick and stinky. Maybe longevity would be a handicap, but man, you can either put on your skin or drink it!!! (High caloric level)


    Reading this post I was wondering what would be the first fragance with the first component born out of planet earth (a strange dusty mineral from mars, venus... or whatever). I'm a freak hehe

    The scent of the the female breast.

    Some milky jasmine with a base of benzoin, natural vanilla and the softest musk far beneath would be a good start for this. Not that I'd like to wear it, but it should exist. I can't make it since I have not found anything natural to use for a milky cream note, only a few synthetics that leave much to ask for.

    Edit: Sorry, not exactly a male fragrance! But some men would love it, I'm sure.

    The art of war is is supposed to be a fascinating book. I get what you're saying, it's only impossible for me to imagine a fragrance smelling like war. What would it be like? Lots of smokey notes? "Burned" notes? Something "smelling like blood" like they say is in Secretions Magnifique? Very hard 2 imagine.

    Actually, I wouldn't create a Sea one. Bond no. 9 Coney Island does that perfectly, even though it adds cotton candy.

    If I were to create one, it would be Hawaiian Punch. God, I love Hawaiian Punch. It's a shame they don't sell it in Canada anymore.

    I think the structure would be similar to Champs-Elysees by Guerlain (with the hibiscus, etc), but it would be EXTREMELY heavy on citrus, apple, cherry, and grape notes.

    By an easy stretch I might point out to you that talking war is close enough to talking politics, and talking politics is against the Basenotes rules.

    Please, take that off-topic sub theme and your reflections to personal messages please.

    EDIT: Sorry DustB, I just read your post!

    War is an act that is full of emotion and pain and consequences, therefore I think of it as highly romantic and a compelling subject for any creative work. Just look at how many great novels and movies have been made. I am not saying war is just, but I do see the capacity of artistic expression in it; and in this political climate, how fitting.

    But back to the subject: I'd love to have the smell of plastic/tile staircases (maybe laced with turpentine?), wood doors/furniture and brewing coffee, it reminds me of my father's old office.

    When I was a kid (in the RADICAL 80's), there were these scented erasers that smell really good. I couldn't for the life of me describe this smell to you, but I remember it was sweet and fruity. Combine that with the smell of the scented pencils that came out of the machine on the wall in the library in my elementary school, and the smell of "Teen Spirit" shampoo. That's what I want!

    Unfortunately to my knowledge most local perfumes have only ever tried to remix the usual herbal and floral suspects. So much ignored potential in the way of indigenous ingredients... redgum, jarrah, huon, wattle, frangi, tea tree, brown boronia, macadamia, et al.

    So true! The potential is enormous. We just need someone like Jean-Claude Ellena or Andy Tauer to spend some time over here! It amazes me why our brown boronia is not used more extensively. It has the most beautiful, elusive scent I know of. Shame it's such a prima donna and promptly dies whenever I try to grow it!

    I've yet to come up with a clever name for it.

    Why not call it Resistor?

    I'd prefer something more cheeky, less utilitarian.

    Milliamperes?
    L'Eau d'Ohms?
    Jicky?

    OK, that was just silly.

    Opening: Citrus (litte to give it a 3 second sparkle), Basil, Wormwood, Artemisia

    Heart: Cedarwood, Rose Absolute, Celery, Geramium, Patchouly, Rosewood

    Base: Castoreum, Leather, Ambergris (like in Mazzolari Lui), Sandalwood, Labdanum, Styrax, Musk

    The scent opens bright and dry, just to give it some sparkle, some vision of outcome. Every topnote is unsweet and it announces the upcoming notes, being pretty civilized in the opening accord. After that, one enters Dante's Inferno and Paradiso at the same time, abandoning all hope but merging with love-in itself. The rose and rosewood darken the fragrance, which was so bright at the top, the patchouly somewhat sweetens it compared to the overall midnotes. When trespassing hell, and entering heaven, everything is turned in pure emotion, a form morality beyond good and evil, beauty, life, animalism, hatred, fear, but beyond all, power, captured in the will to live.

    In the end, all it tries, is to live forever...
