    Default Most Outrageous Ingredient You've Ever Encountered

    So, it turns out on closer inspection that "black orris" and "black sandalwood" are real things that exist in the world. But what is the most totally outrageous, over-the-top or clearly fabricated fragrance note / ingredient you've ever seen claimed in a perfume PR blurb or notes pyramid?
    I'll always make time for cats and roses

    My great loves:
    Mitsouko, L'Heure Bleue, Caron Pour un Homme, Dune, Fat Electrician, Oxford and Cambridge, Eau de Campagne, Elixir des Merveilles, Sarrasins, MKK, Ambre Sultan, Tocade, Dzing!

    Current obsessions:
    Le Temps d'Une Fête, Tom of Finland, Jasmin et Cigarette, Dirty (not dirty at all )

    comme des garçons has some pretty over the top notes, like meteorite and magma in stephen jones for example:

    for outrageous, I'd say oud in many note pyramids.

    "A bath in the water" - Ladamo O'Driu
    I think the language barrier got the wording mixed up :')

    I have always been intrigued by CdG's 'dust on a lightbulb' - must check that one out at some point.

    The rubber note in a good batch of Bulgari Black is fairly outrageous.
