Hello Dave... Which pill do you want? The Red pill? Or the Blue pill?
Depending upon which pill you take will determine which rabbit hole you run down, and which version of the Matrix you subscribe to.
I'm glad you're bored with the standard fare.
But in reality, you are asking to go down a path that could take several years, to work out, and could obsessivley lead to spending thousands, or tens of thousands of dollars. (Or whatever currency you favor) But I'll warn you, 'taint cheap.
You might have a better time spent being a consumer of niche scents that break some rules, instead of trying to learn how to be a creator...
but of course that's up to you...
I studied by myself, over the course of eight years, and have spent a LOT of money, and have released my own line of Perfumes. You might or might not be that ambitious, but the path is long, and expensive. You *can* get some fragrance oils, mix it up, make somethign for yourself fairly easily, cheaply, and quickly have a modicum of success. Your friends may even tell you that they like them too.
But to get to the level of making commercial scents that you now despise, will take a LONG time...
Blue Pill? or Red Pill?
