    Thanks hednic for a warm welcome and providing glossary but still missing what PO and AC is.

    I read these at some website mentioning ingredient as PO /AC / EO.

    PO may be Perfume Oil

    AC might be Acetyl, a chemical bond

    You would probably have more luck in the DIY forum

    Welcome newbie!

    We did once have a FAQ thread that the mods started. Can't for the life of me understand where we put it...

    Need to know full forms / little understandings of followings;

    EO - don't know
    PO - don't know
    AC - aromachemical
    Accord - A group of scents that meld together becoming difficult to parse
    Base - the basenotes of a fragrance, the groundwork that the fragrance is built on, will be the ultimate drydown that you will smell the longest after the top and heart have faded.
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.
