    Default Mad scientist...

    So here I am, 144 bottles of fragrance oils and 52 bottles of aroma molecules...and wondering how I'll ever come up with combinations that make scents

    Seriously, for instance, what can one do with Hedione? What to combine it with? And on and on. How many drops to how many drops of alcohol or DI-propylene glycol?
    Ok, I'm not that confused but maybe, lol.
    Are there any publications or places that have any "recipes" for the aroma molecules? I realize that everyone has their secrets but there must be some starting points?

    TIA

    May I suggest that you post this on the DIY forum? You're more likely to get replies there.

    A Method of Creation and Perfumery by Jean Carles is available online. According to the perfumersapprentice.com, his model is the foundation of modern perfumery. It is free online because it was never copyrighted or patented.

    For Hedione, it is what a lot of designer frags use to make it smell "fresh."

    DiY section is good, have fun researching!
