    Thanks for starting this, Man_From_Shalimar (how's things in Shalimar?). I've always meant to do this myself and I've wondered why there wasn't already a sticky or a sub-forum for it.

    Anyway, here's my first one:

    ALHAMBRA

    Bitter Orange 10
    Bergamot 3
    Petitgrain 2
    Tangerine 2
    Neroli 12
    Jamarosa 4
    Michelia Alba Leaf 4
    Jasmin Sambac abs 4
    Ylang Ylang (First-Comoros) 2
    Pemou (Siam Wood) 8
    Cedar Himalayan 8
    Cedar Atlas 8

    Notes: Raw beginner here. I recently discovered Pemou or Siam Wood EO from Hermitage Oils (you're The Man, Adam!) and fell instantly in love. I was struck by its strong similarity to Neroli and couldn't wait to use it in a blend as the basenote for a Neroli fragrance. My first attempt overdid the Pemou. This is the second attempt which I only blended last night and already (24 hours later) it is showing promise. I used a mixture of both Himalayan and Atlas Cedar, but you could use just one or the other. Don't use Virginian! you'll get something altogether different which I couldn't imagine working very well, what with that 'pencil shaving' note.
    The Michelia Alba Leaf has a softening effect, which I like, but it could be omitted if you don't have any.
    The Jamarosa is another new discovery. I'm finding it useful to boost citruses and impart a "tanginess".
    I would love to start playing around with synthetics: I think this could benefit from something to give it a 'sparkle' but I have no idea what that could be! Any suggestions (I'm looking at you, Chris Bartlett!)

    I would try more bergamot for added "sparkle".

    For adding "sparkles" to the composition, i would suggest to experiment with the following components (one at a time!), in 1% dilution for starters, they tend to have strong effects!:

    - The Aldehydes, preferably C10, C12 NMA and C12 Laurel
    - Ambrocenide (also a good fixative for your citrus notes)
    - Cosmone (excellent volume lifter, although it will introduce some Musk to the composition)
    - Civet can do wonders, especially in combination with the flowers
    - Ultrazur, can definitely bring some lift, volume and diffusitivity
    - Okoumal will bring a twinkle to the cedar

    Enjoy the experiment!
