    Default disaster formula

    Hello
    I just made up this disaster formula: it was great in my imagination to describe a little city near the sea with a lot of roses in the gardens and with a history of richness, and now a bit decadent. But it resulted in a completely unbalanced disaster.... The theme is there, but I need your advice to develop the theme
    The measurements are in ml.
    Ambre 83.........0.7
    Iso e super.........2.5
    Hedione..........1
    Vertofix...........0.5
    Calone...........0.5 @20%
    Ambrox..........1 @10%
    Cetalox..........0.5 @10%
    Aurelione........0.5
    Ethylene brassilate..........0.4
    Exaltolide.........0.3
    Ethyl vanillin..........1 drop @10%
    Lemon........2 drops
    Myrtle.........1 drop
    Cashmeran velvet........4 drops
    Dorinia sa e.............1 ml @100%
    Benzoin Sumatra ..........0.5@100%
    Alcohol ............43 ml
    It smells good, but it s very unbalanced and lacks that x-factor to be good...

    This is the image I had in my mind... A bit difficult...I know......

    italianways.com/il-villino-ruggeri-di-pesaro-stupenda-eredita-della-belle-epoque/

    It is a great and very rich house in Pesaro, Italy
    Any help to develop the theme ?

    At first glance it looks like you have too many base notes with virtually no top notes. Why don't you try scaling up the top notes? Maybe some PEA and rose has a citrus note to it so why don't you try increasing the citrus note, maybe some bergamot

    Damn, good but complicated, not simply.....

    ""The measurements are in ml.

    Benzoin Sumatra ..........0.5@100%
    Alcohol ............43 ml""

    Uhm,ml and drops...Total, 9,4ml + drops (a quarter of ml, approximately).Observations:
    1)10% of dorinia sa e are terrible, too much. Halve. And add 1 drops of rose oxyde at 10%.
    2)Calone apart, i dont see the sea...you haven't other ozonics, less fruity? Ozone propanal or simililar,for example? Add these at same quantity.
    3) Add 0,3 or 0,4 ml of salicilate, Amyl, for example,or similar. and some drops of linalool or ethyl linalool (5/6) and same for phenoxy ethanol and same for peomosa and same for benzyl acetate.
    4)Lemon 2 drops are nil. At least, 0,5ml of lemon/bergamot and 2/3 drops of c-10 aldheyde at 10%.
    5) Add a little bit of "old smell" molecule for decadence : oakmoss/evernil or indole, or 2.6 xilenol ,or orris root, etc etc (or suederal, a new and old leather smell)
    6) Ambre 83 at 0,5ml, and 0,1 ml of patchouli or clearwood, and 0,2ml of florol or florosa or meijiff. Double up cashmeran

    i dont guarantee the result

    Too many musks not enough meat. Nothing there to smell but a musky veil. Needs more notes that smell like something.

    I doubt the above formula is a "disaster,"... it`s more likely that your mind can`t find a place for it.
    Try letting the accord rest for a month, and then come back to it with a different mentality.

    Judging from the house you need to do something that is totally over the top.
