    Well i am looking to recreate the full spectum of the frankincense resin,from raw resin to smoke.
    Burning in charcoal ,high quality frankincense smells of lime,bit of eucalyptus and bit sweet and balsamic.
    Hard to describe,but it is magical..

    Without me spending half an hour to list out raw materials, I suggest that you spend some time researching previous threads here for an exhaustive pattern of favorite raw materials.

    Or learn to use the TGSC odor index well.

    It's hard to recreate the full spectrum of Frankincense / Burning incense without naturals. The essential oil is very complex, with many terpenes impossible to find isolated / synthetic..

    But, you can create a good and convincing Frankincense note with the following aromachemicals:

    - Lemony part: Alpha & Beta Pinene, Alpha Phellandrene, Limonene, Camphene, Delta-3-Carene, P-Cymene, Eucalyptol
    - Resinous part: Beta Caryophyllene, Hercolyn D, Fixamber (Trimofix O), Vertofix Coeur
    - Burning effect: Cade oil, Birch tar oil (rectified) very diluted
    - Diffusion / fixative effect: Aldehyde C12 MNA, Musk R1, Oxyoctaline Formate

    And using naturals would be:

    - For a Lemony incense note (top to middle): Olibanol
    - For a Woody incense note (middle): Bois d'encens
    - For a Burning incense note (top to middle): Fumencens
    - For a Resinous incense note (middle to base): Olibanum Resinoid

    Thanks for the input!

    I was thinking both naturals and synthetics off course,but I was looking on which synthetic could help me support the naturals.
    I was thinking something green-citrusy ( lime synthetic /natural?),traces of eucalyptus notes along with a pinene and a sweet cotton candy texture(ethyl maltol ?)
    and some balsamic ambery aromachemical in the manner of Gucci pour Homme I...
