Grrrrrrrr......

While my Chypre/fruity perfume is maturing I worked on another perfume of mine the Oriental/leathery perfume. This perfume is based on oriental and animal notes. I wanted it to make a sexy fragrance based on amber and other warm animal notes like civet and castoreum but also leather and myrrh. I added some flowery notes of rose, jasmine, tuberose, orange flower and lily. This all is sweetened by a warm sweet honey note. To give it a fresh top I added some bergamot and mandarin.
It's a fragrance that touch my emotions, it's warm, sensual and pure sexy and has great staying power. I like the fragrance a lot but it's also a bit heavy and I'm not sure it's wearable at daytime. I want to make the fragrance a bit lighter than it is right now, maybe by adding some Hedione or more lily notes. I'm close but it needs some changes to make it lighter.

Sounds delicious, lieve Jenny-
I'm a shoe-in for animalic notes and honey.

Myrrh is another favorite, but can steal the show if you let it- a very headstrong aroma...

How is my favorite Frieslander?
I hope you, and DH, are well and happy-
Kus !

Myrrh has a wonderful aroma it's sweet and a bit creamy woody, well it's difficult to discribe. It works real well in this fragrance. I added some cinnamon and saffron as well.
Me and my DH doing real fine, I hope you are doing finde as well.
Dikke kus terug van mij.

I just wrote this all but I found a typo so am rewriting it...

I love your intro: "Grrrrrrr....." and your big kitty picture! How do you always find such cool stuff for your blog? Why don't you name this perfume Grrrrrrr? I think it says a lot. Maybe others will have other feline ideas

Hi Mike,

Nice big kitty huh? Maybe I can call the fragrance Grrrr, I also thought about using the name Feline. Sometimes I find it difficult to find a name, because it really has to fit the fragrance.
