    Default Looking for help to create a new perfume (with hints of basil, rosemary, woodsy scent)

    Anybody willing to help me create a perfume that combines elements of basil, rosemary and other woodsy elements? Been playing around with some combinations and I'm curious to see if we could create one that has these elements come through.

    Basil and Patchouli are connected by beta caryophyllene, if you read the GC on TGSC for Basil.
    Patchouli is rather woody, dependent upon the extraction. Then look for another wood type to link the patchouli and the new wood.

    Leave the top for mostly the basil top and the rosemary. Look for other connections between Rosemary and other materials by studying the gc for Rosemary.

    Search TGSC by asking: "Basil typical GC".
    Pick a large woody constutuent of Basil, in this case beta caryophyllene is nearly 50%. Look up beta caryophyllene on TGSC, and look under the occurrence tab. Look for a woody material with a large constituent of beta caryophyllene, which patchouli has listed at 20.64%. That's a pretty good woody connection.

    Do this same process for Rosemary, and patchouli, and others, and walk down the evaporation timeline building a list of materials to begin blending with to accomplish your goal. So far, your materials are mostly toppy, and you must find longer lasting materials to build the base with. You might start with EO woodies, and them also blend the same plant, but in an absolute.

    You can also place vertenex in the top, and iso e super in the mid bottom.

    Look around and build your possible list of materials, and work it out.

    Thanks for your advice! That really got me going. I'll keep playing around with it
