Clone Formula: Helmut Lang Eau de Cologne

Maurice Roucel is the nose behind the skanky and outrageous fragrance Musc Ravageur. In an interview discussing the fragrance, he admitted that despite its name, it ironically had no musk in it. His true musk fragrance was Eau de Cologne for Helmut Lang presented here. This has amazing diffusion and is a graunchy animalic musk bomb; it is unlike anything else you'll have smelled before (unless you've smelled the original).

This is definitely an interesting but enjoyable smell. I am wearing it now and the diffusion is very impressive. Its not cloying or saturating, just light and pleasant with a bright, woody, buttery sandalwood note really shining on my skin right now. I can see this definitely becoming something I would regularly wear year round. I’ve never smelled the original but I am really liking this clone a lot. Thanks for sharing Jamie!

I used 50 lyral and 50 hydroxycitronellal for that.
And for Aurelione i used L-muscone and velvione
Its a soapy fragrance Like that, really creamy with good Diffusion
Will compare it in the future with the real formula after i got the ingredients

EDIT: So my Version is probably more on the White Flower/ Lily of the Valley Kind of smell

Just to double check here, is the benzoin at 100% for this formula? Just because most of your formulas use 50% and it’s what mine comes diluted to. Thanks for all the new content, I’ve really enjoyed it!

I made this formula up like its stated in the Formula.
I have benzoin at 50% too and just doubled the amount.
Worked out great like that

I’ve made a twist of this formula based on what ingredients I have, having never smelled the fragrance itself. However, I found some notes on this:

According to the article, there is a large amount of velvione in this fragrance.

Cheers!

Yes! I am aware of the article being about velviona, but here is the quote I sourced from:

the designer fell in love with the musky floralcy of Givaudan’s Velvione©, that was profusely poured into the base of Helmut Lang eau de parfum and cologne, both launched in 2000.
