Does anyone know how to make a home made cologne that smells like Davidoff's "Cool Water" for men, using only essential oils and alcohol? (I want to avoid fragrance oils and synthetic components due to allergies).
I found a Wikipedia entry here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cool_Water_(perfume)
It lists the ingredients as lavender, jasmine, oakmoss, musk, sandalwood.
These ingredients are easy to source, including a plant musk essential oil.
The entry on Basenotes contains a much longer list of ingredients: http://www.basenotes.net/ID26120398.html
Lavender, Coriander, Peppermint, Rosemary, Orange Blossom..
Jasmine, Oakmoss, Geranium, Sandalwood..
Amber, Musk, Sandalwood, Cedar.
Furthermore, I found a page here: http://188.8.131.52/search?q=cache...essential+oils
that lists Galbanum (or a synthetic galbanum substitute) as an ingredient of Cool Water. Galbanum is available as an essential oil. But galbanum is not mentioned in either of the previous two ingredient lists.
Does anyone know which list is correct?
Does anyone know what proportions or percentages of the different oils should be used? (E.g. 1 part lavender, 5 parts jasmine, 2 parts oakmoss, 3 parts musk and 2 parts sandalwood)
Thanks in advance, Fred.
