Tonka Bean Accord

captaink (verified owner) -
This is much more affordable than Tonka absolute a pretty darn close to the real thing. I made some omissions and subbed out one of the lactones to make a Tonka note that was more creamy than nutty. I am very pleased with the result. This formula pointed me in the right direction.

Sylvione Speciality Accord

HSAL (verified owner) -
The title says it all. I had no idea what to expect from this accord, but man it blew me away. I had to substitute the aldehyde for another aldehyde and I don’t have Rose Crystals, but still very very nice. I would describe it as a clean, woody, powerful, musky profile that somehow also has a citrusy, floral touch to it. It could even work as a minimal scent on its own. It strongly reminds me of WILD and Green Wood by Dsquared (which are basically the same perfumes). Very curious to the Sylvione Base now. I didn’t purchase the latter as it has a couple materials I don’t have. For those who don’t know: if you are logged in you can see the materials listed in the formula, very handy. Thanks Filipe!

Ebony Wood Accord

konstantin.mihov (verified owner) -
I generally like my woods on the sweet smooth and milky side. This isn’t it - it is the dry dusty nutty side but it has a place in the collection of bases that one needs to have and to experiment with. Excellent and worth it.

I love this accord and use it in everything.

Tobacco Accord

Morag (verified owner) -
Very nice accord! I was missing one material, but it still smelled so nice and comforting.
Mandrews32 (verified owner) -
Think Amouage Journey Man style tobacco, very gorgeous!
konstantin.mihov (verified owner) -
Tobacco absolute is such a special ingredient that it is unfair to call anything that aims to come close “tobacco”. And it is true that this is not anything like the absolute but it is a great allusion particularly with the fruity nuances that accentuate what tobacco can be like when it is not turned into cigarette smoke.

Very smooth and beautiful tobacco accord

Cedarwood Chest Accord

Archie (verified owner) -
a clean version of a cedarwood cupboard, very good with most compositions if you want a cedarwood accord in a formula, or a good build up for a cedarwood based perfume. I made a minor tweak and made it more dusty :)
dealmeida.sandy (verified owner) -
Beautiful accord and easy to use.

Sandalwood Accord

konstantin.mihov (verified owner) -
A powerful sandalwood base which feels quite different from others that you might know (Mysore Base for example) - and it is not attempting to replicate Indian Sandalwood but it can provide an excellent base for woody, fruity, or amber fragrances.
dealmeida.sandy (verified owner) -
I struggle a lot with making a great sandalwood accord. This smells very good but is very faint on a strip. I didn’t have Mysore acetate and so replaced it with Mysore wood blend, so that was probably my issue. I have yet to find a sandalwood accord that I really love, but this is really nice.

Plum Accord

konstantin.mihov (verified owner) -
This is less smooth than Prunella with a bit more edge and green sour smell. Overall would be very useful for a chypre or a woody perfume a-la Shiseido Feminite Du Bois.

Sea Salt Accord

konstantin.mihov (verified owner) -
It is difficult to imagine this before mixing it because we are not used to think of salt as having a smell but this is it. Very interesting and very appropriate for all kinds of masculine perfumes.
dealmeida.sandy (verified owner) -
This is exactly like sea salt.
