    Default Pondering making my own blends

    Is there somewhere I can read about synthetics and the fragrances they "duplicate"? Also, anyone have recommendations for said synthetics?

    I suggest starting with The Perfumer's Apprentice. Linda sells both naturals and synthetics. I can especially recommend the jasmine and sandalwood accords. They are very good and much less expensive than extracts. Considering how overharvested the sandalwood tree is, it could be argued that we should only use synthetics for sandalwood notes.

    Thank you for pointing that out. I do not know about ingredients to know which (if any) are sustainably harvested. I will take that into account in the future. I did stumble upon Perfumer's Apprentice last night and the kit is going on my Christmas list. Thanks again!

    Also, what do you think would be good to start out with at the Perfumer's apprentice? I'm not sure what kit would be a good starting point.
