Calone® 1951 - marine, ozonic, melon.
Starting with a base of ethylene brassylate, ebanol and Calone® 1951. I chose Calone® 1951 because it has a sweeter, fruitier, marine scent and I didn’t want the fragrance to lean too marine. Ethylene brassylate and ebanol add a transparent, woody, musky element that fits in nicely with this style of fragrance. For citrus notes I added some citral and dihydro myrcenol which both have very pleasant lime notes and some oranger crystals for some sweeter citrus notes. I was happy with what I had at this point and felt like I had a great foundation for a fresh cologne style fragrance. Looking to add a bit of dimension I added some orange terpenes and linalool to give the fragrance a terpenic quality. I thought this added some great nuance to the citrus notes. To round out the fragrance I added benzyl acetate and Florhydral®. This teased some white flower notes without taking away from the overall character of the fragrance. Finally, I added a good dose of everyone’s favorite cologne molecule: Iso E Super®.
Overall I am pleased with how this fragrance turned out. It definitely is marine and citrus like I intended it to be. Something that I didn’t anticipate was this laundry quality that arises from this combination of notes. Reminds me of dryer sheets. Very pleasant and fresh and clean aroma.
