    Default Creating accords and formulas

    Was wondering what people might think would be the best book for learning how to create accords and formulas out of Perfumery Principles and Practice by Calkin and Jellinek, Louis Appell’s Cosmetics, Fragrances and Flavors, and Introduction to Perfumery by Tony Curtis? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Thanks for the reply Joev. So Perfumery, Principles and Practice teaches a lot about creating an actual perfume?

    I can find the post but someone recommended it to me and sent the the link to the pdf book. It’s not an ereader it’s just a clean copy of the book.

    My antivirus has no suspicions on this PDF file, otherwise I wouldn't publish it. The book is very useful for beginners. Benefits for those who do not speak English that you can copy the text and paste into a translator. I downloaded it and reading now. 100% guarantee no one can give what he's got in the computer there is no virus... Sorry if I caused inconvenience.

    i'm not sure if you need to read books to learn how to create accords, as this is much more due to your own curiosity, and perception. but please don't stop reading books books will guide you with formulas. Louis appell is a great resource!
    creating an accord simply means to find a balance between two or more components. mix two ingredients 1:1 and adjust the ratio to your likings until you reach your own level of balance. some ingredients will balance, others wont. thats part of the game.

    I got alerts. in general, i stay away from sites that don't pay the author. Although in my youth, napster was a friend of mine.

    YES, $30 bucks, about the cost of two 1 ounce ACs.
