    Default Question about FO

    ok when dealing with EO it's fairly easy to know or find out if its a top middle or base note. But when working with FO's how do you determine if a FO is top, mid, or base? is there a site, chart or memo I didn't get?

    Well, without being cynical or snippy, it's about conducting your own research, and testing and knowing your own materials before you work with them. It's about being, or really, becoming a Perfumer.

    It's a process of becoming a Perfumer. But being the student first, by making your own notes to understand your materials, and then you begin to have an understanding of how to make things work.

    well that's what I been doing but there are way to many oils to test on my own. I know there has to be something out there.

    That's why it takes eight years or more to train to become a Perfumer. The only way for you to learn, is for you to do the work. Dip your material, and follow its progress over time, in exactly the same way you have done before (at least I hope that is what you have done).

    It's been 7 years before I have released my line of fragrances, and yes certainly, I am still a student...

    The thing is, with Perfumery you never stop learning, and you must constantly keep reminding yourself of what things smell like and how they perform. The more you do this, the better you get at it.
