Patron Formula: Modern Rose Chypre

This is the first fragrance I ever created! Well, it's the nth iteration of said fragrance. The very first instance was just three ingredients: patchouli acetate, Dorinia SAE, and hydroxycitronellal in the form of Firmenich's Cyclosia base. I had mixed the three together in the proportions found in this fragrance and dipped a smelling stick into it. Hours later I walked into the room I had left it in and was met with the most magical and profoundly beautiful scent.

Perfect, getting excited seeing the ingredients listed!!
Thanks, have to check for the Lisylang.., I think I have the patchoulyl acetate but I am not sure.
Chocovan at 1%? Haven’t used it since I bought a small amount, but it’s strong I guess?
Furthermore I am so glad that you almost use anything at 100%, because I hate dilutions.

I’ve mixed this one a few weeks ago, instead of the lisylang I’ve used Ylang III and Patchouly Fraction B, and double the amount of Galaxolide 50%. I’ve used a zip bag for my waste(pipets. weighing boats) mounted on a tripod, and I didn’t throw this bag away…The sent coming from this bag is amazing, I still have this bag and open it now and then to release the nice odor! And I didn’t even try the mixture itself due to the macerating process. This smells like Black Aoud from Montale or other Rose/oud combo’s …The funny thing is that… Read more »

Planning on making this formula. There doesn’t seem to be any bergamot in the formula but its noted as a top note. Is the bergamot missing ?

Thanks Jamie. Could i replace some of the ethyl linalool / DHM bergamot ? What impact would that have ?

The formulation looks very promising!
I can’t get my hands on Lisylang Heart though.. Can I substitute if for some other Ylang? Organic EO by Biolandes, for example?
And as for Iralia – do you think I can play with different proportions of metyl ionone alpha and beta instead?

I used Ylang Extra instead of the Lisylang Heart but only used half the amount. Worked out good.
I’m sure u can substitude Iralia for other methyl ionones or Isoraldeine

Hello Jamie, I have a question about the Chocovan, I am not sure but I think it’s 50% in TEC? So, this you diluted then to 1%, right? Thanks, Peter

Hi Jamie, can I replace Rose Oxide Laevo with the Racemic as Laevo isn’t available to purchase in small quantities

Jamie, I put together this formula with couple of substitutions. I replaced Rose Oxide Laevo with Racemic + Doremox in equal proportions and since I only had 1/3rd of required quantity of Rose Bulgaria Otto I added remaining 2/3rd quantity in form of Rose Absolute Bulgarian, and still can’t believe how extraordinary the result is. Its definitely a winner for me. Kudos Jamie

So I made this a few months ago and the weird thing is, I was working on something quite similar but not immediately obviously similar from looking at the formula. I love this! I think it’s a brilliant fragrance, it’s been macerating for ages now and as I try it again months later everything has come together. Inevitably, I had to replace a couple of things but not that much, I used a chocolate base(from Pellwall, which I don’t actually like all that much) I had for the chocovan, it was either that or theobroma cacao which is an absolute… Read more »
