    Default "Shoot the juice" for which frag ?

    This phrase refers to a process by which chemists can determine which molecules are in a frag (for those who don't know). My question is, which frag (s) would you like this done to, if you would then be given the results? Every time I wear Cuba Red, for example, I think about what might be in it (I haven't even been able to find a basic notes pyramid for it). Cedar is clearly in there, but what else?

    L'Anarchiste. I can't smell anything distinct except for the musk. I don't know what other people are talking about when they say apples, oranges, cedar, or anything.

    from parfyym.pri.ee:

    Cuba Red by Cuba: Spices, Lavender, Amber

    (Is this the same fragrance as Cuba Red by Fragluxe? Perfume.com described Cuba Red by Fragluxe as "a refined woody mossy aroma for men. This masculine scent possesses a blend of woods, spice and a hint of tobacco. Cuba Red is perfect for evening wear.")

    L'Anarchiste by Caron:
    Top notes: Orange Blossom, Mandarin
    Middle notes: Cedar, Sandalwood, Vetiver
    Base notes: Musk

    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost

    There's no way it has only 3 notes, which is why I want the juice shot! LOL. It's certainly woody, but don't hold your breath waiting to find moss.

    Why not ring around any local unis?

    See if they'll run a GCMS/ IR/FTIR/UV-vis/UV spec on it for you? There will probably be a $50 fee attached, but they should definately do it...

    Just hope they have a library of compounds already loaded otherwise it'll take all of yoru cunning to work out specifically which aromachems are in it

    Deformulation would cost way more than $50; running a simple 5 component GC/MS analysis would cost more than that where I used to work, and perfumes have way more than five components.

    Anything from Profumum--there is no way that Ambra Aurea contains Grey Amber. It must be an accord or blended base.

    L'Antimatiere. I want to know what molecules besides iso E super it is using that are too large to be smelled continously. Perhaps some irones (which I am not anosmic too, but also which I can't seem to smell continously), and ambroxan? Some kind of mint/menthol note, too. Perhaps the chemicals are combining in such a way that individually they can be smelled continously but combined are too large for the olfactory bulb to process continously.

    Tubereuse Criminelle... because I suspect a big dollop of wintergreen or a similar synthetic.
