    I'm still new to the wide world of perfumery but here's my list, working off my past experiences, delights, and associations.

    * Myrrh - Got me into the perfumery game. I used to wear it neat, slathered on, for a good two years. It drove people crazy in a good way.
    * Patchouli - Addictive scent that my father always comments on when I'm wearing it (neat as well).
    * White Lotus Abs - Ridiculously expensive but it smells so lush, watery, and almost dead/damp in a way that satisfies.
    * Saffron Abs - The iodine-like tinge is really gorgeous...both sultry and sophisticated.
    * Tobacco Abs - Delicious and deep.
    * Oakmoss Abs - Really mysterious. I have an empty bottle that I keep around just to open up and sniff!
    * Civet Tincture - Every time I open the bottle I'm blown away. I made a stinky, rudimentary fragrance with something like 15% tincture that tests my confidence every time I wear it to work.
    * Labdanum Abs - I spray my girlfriend in this. Devoid of benzoin and/or vanilla, it's what I've always wanted from a commercial amber that I've never got.
    * Mint - By itself, my girlfriend says I smell like toothpaste. Mixed with about any ingredient, and suddenly I'm in a meditative, cool-as-steel state of don't f*#% with me. Really centers me.
    * Agarwood - Multi-faceted, powerful, and gorgeous worn neat.

    My experience is with naturals of plant origin. I would include ambergris and musk were they not problematic. These are things I experience as almost complete perfumes in themselves in spite of being raw materials.

    Unsoaked Vietnamese oud oil
    Malinau / Borneo oud oil
    Santalum album
    Santalum spicatum
    Cassis bud
    Orris butter
    Jasmine grand
    Jasmine sambac
    Rose otto

    This will be mostly EO's since that's what I'm used so far:
    1.) Vetiver- makes everything dirty in the best possible way.
    2.) Cedar (Virginia) - fresh cut cedar wood is addicting.
    3.) Iso E Super - reminds me of cedar wood but in a more diffusive way.
    4.) Patchouli - (see vetiver)
    5.) Jasmine (synthetic or absolute) - Seems to smooth and bind everything together in a beautifully narcotic way.
    6.) Coumarin - Soothing like vanilla but also warm and toasty.
    7.) Bergamot
    8.) Basil - herbaceous and lifting.
    9.) Phenyl Ethyl Alcohol (Natural) - ordered this on accident from PA and it was the happiest mistake of the year. Sweet rose scent. I could wear this as a one-note fragrance.
    10.) Calamus - this does wicked things to polite scents.

    Well it has to be civet really for it's ability to enrich a fragrance, but again I shall have to find a good substitute. I was going to tincture some civet coffee, but after seeing how they were treated, then I changed my mind forever and will never buy civet coffee.
    mumsy I know you're probably not active on the forum, maybe anyone else could advise how can we make a coffee tinctures for the fragrances use?
