Thread: Humidity?

  1. #1

    Default Humidity?

    Does anyone know how to bring a sense of humidity into their fragrance? There are many molecules that give that dry feeling, but I want to do the opposite. Some marine/watery molecules will give the impression of the scent of water but they don't really bring to mind humidity. Scientifically speaking I feel like the idea might be unrealistic.

    I think the sense of humidity may potentially be linked to traces of mustiness. Fungal or earthy smells could help.

    Fungal notes would be useful; try Ethyl Amyl Ketone, Amyl Vinyl Ketone, Humus Absolute, Cepes Absolute. I have also found that Stemone smells wet.

    Ebanol might give you a sense of thickness, humidity and volume, it can be somewhat musty depending on what it's blended with.
    Florhydral has a moist aspect but it's more fresh, like rain and not really musty.
    Eugenol Acetate has a moistness to it compared to Eugenol as do some other acetates, imho.
    Cepes absolute (mushroom)
    Choya Nakh smells of smoke, seaweed, seashells, etc
    Patchouli EO
    Root Eo's like vetiver, pemou etc can ad a bit of bitterness and earth
