    Default PK's Super Sugar Base

    Boy, do I ever hate sugary perfumes.
    So, I had to make 'sugar" tonight,
    Here's the formula:

    Vanillin 2.3900gr 7.63%
    Ethyl Vanillin 9.1000gr 29.07%
    Maltol 0.4550gr 1.45%
    Ethyl Maltol 10% PG 7.5000gr 23.96%
    Coumarin 1.7900gr 5.72%
    Furaneol 50% 0.0700gr 0.22%
    DPG 10.0000gr 31.94%


    With some mild heat, it all goes cleanly into solution. Cooled, it seems stable, but some may drop back to crystals if it gets cold, like next winter, but not anytime soon around these parts...

    I don't have any maltol (said to be much less strong than ethyl maltol) : I wonder what could be the effect of this AC at 1.45% in your accord... or in any accord?
    Is it commonly used in (more or less) sugary perfumes in addition with ethyl maltol?

    I've never added more than .8 maltol to a perfume and usually only .4. IMO it's plenty strong. I have not tried ethyl maltol yet but I've been told it's 10 times stronger. It is quite sweet smelling in a more burnt caramel way not quite as cotton candy or strawberry as others. Too me it's a very feminine ingredient. I'm not sure a male perfume would ever use much maltol unless it was to make something seem more naturally sweet like a custard reconstruction. I haven't made this yet but I'd say average usage level for this accord might be as little as .1, of course, there are exceptions to everything!

    there are several men's scents that use the maltols, but yes, more Fem usage.
    My Friend asked for a clean vanilla sugar note in something, so I had to make that as an accord. hence what I posted. I do think that the coumarin is a little much in this, now...But I used this accord at 1.15% in the concentrate... We'll see/smell how it turns out...
