    Default suggestions for a pollen accord?

    I have used the alpha, beta-ionone, carrot seed oil to add powder to florals...
    Only, I find the texture of the above materials does not resemble that of natural pollen.

    I need to make myself a pollen accord.
    pollen is dusty woody bark, cool green, soft bitter herbal, slight bit of ammonia

    Which materials would be most applicable to creating such a complex accord?
    Any suggestions?

    Thanks so much

    That would be the last note I would want to have in a fragrance! Claritin Eau de Parfum. Does that come in an extreme version?
    Beer? The kids' new gear?

    Pollen is one of those things that is not one thing. Pollen can have no smell, garbage smell, semen, sweet, honey, sweat and minerally. I saw a perfume blog where the blogger had thought about this and I concur that pollen might be honey and mineral together. I am not sure what makes a really good mineral scent in perfume but honey is easy in several ways. So to start with I'd say honey and ambroxan or maybe calone.

    I would probably start with Pollenal.
