Patron Formula: White Musk

Reminiscent of White Musk by the Body Shop, this sultry and creamy fragrance is warm, inviting, unexpected in its unusual notes, and very very long lasting. It combines fruit, florals, and herbs with sweet resins and crystallines (Vanilla, heliotropin, and coumarin). No single note dominates. This is definitely a unisex fragrance and can be diluted in oil (I recommend Jojoba) or ethanol. This is a fragrance which is impossible to stop sniffing when you wear it - it is simply...

I’m curious about the result after mixing, considering the use of some quality musks I think it must work out great!
What about substituting nr.21 for Cyclosia.. is it worth it?

When there are ingredients such as bergamot, coumarin, galbanum and linalyl acetate (or lavender) a “fern” type scent always comes out. Personally, I don’t feel any “Musk” in this perfume. Interesting but very smoky and metallic. I don’t think maturation leads it in the direction of “Musk”, am I right?
In fact, in my opinion, it’s not very far from Green Irish Tweed.

Certainly different, but on the other hand all “Chypre” fragrances are different but they have in common an olfactory profile which is that and only that. This “White Musk” is certainly interesting, but I don’t perceive it as a “Musk” but rather as a “Fougere” 🙂

True, nobody would guess whitemusk just from the smell. I wonder why it was called that in first place. Interesting but not even close to what i expected.

Hi Amine, I would have expected something different, too. Just recently I formulated a “White Musk” with notes of freesia, orchid, peach, ylang ylang and a nice mix of musks. I was curious to see how this formula was to compare it with mine but at first glance I understood that it went in a completely different direction. I repeat that it’s an interesting formula but in my opinion it’s a “fougere” fragrance, not “musk”.
