Clone Formula: Clinique Happy (Men)

Clinique Happy for men is an aromatic citrus fragrance which is one of the most appealing and fresh scents for summer time. It is one of those fragrances that will always garner comments or exclamations of "I love that fragrance! What are you wearing!?" With summer about to emerge with us all from the lockdown we have been under for some weeks now, it seemed fitting to publish my version of Happy for men (though one must admit, this makes...

Hi there! Thanks for all the lovely scents you’ve provided! (: Just wondering how you usually go about diluting these formulas, i can’t seem to find solid information on the proper concentration other than general guidelines for parfums, edp, etc. Is there any proper way of deciding the strength or is it more so a matter of preference?

I wanted to make this Formula in a few days.
I dont know If my way is the best but i will make it at 20% First and See if its good or Not.
20% should be enough for most fragrances.

So i just wondered one Thing.
Is there a Difference when u dilute a scent to 20% and put 5 Sprays on or when you dilute it to 10% and put 10 Sprays on?
I would think it is the same

Hi, I don’t have Guaiayl Acetate and it’s hard for me to find it. What other material could I replace it with? Very diluted Guaiacol? Or do I omit it? Thank you very much

PerfumersWorld and perfumers Supply House got it.
In another Formula Jamie suggested normal guaiac Wood Oil as a Substitute for guaiayl Acetate but i dont know If it works in this formula

When i compare Guaiac wood oil with the acetate just with smelling:
The acetate is much less smokey and a lot cleaner smelling

The first robertet material i got is Pink Pepper Berries Co2, cant wait to try it out in the Terre d’Hermes formula!
I’m just missing a few things.
I’m on the search for Patchouli Moleclur Distilled and there are so many different types that i cant really decide.
Patchouli Molecular Distilled and Patchouli Molecular Distilled 65% Patchoulol are 2 types at Hermitageoils.
Liaison Carbone has Patchouli Absolute Molecular Distilled by Payan Bertrand.
Or the Fraction B by Robertet at Perfumer Supply House.
Or a mixture of maybe Patchoulol crystals and Clearwood to have a more replicatable formula.

I will get that on my list for the next purchase at psh but that wont be soon sadly
Best Option for me would be the Patchouli Abs. MD from Payan Bertrand to get or using patchoulol crystals with maybe clearwood or normal patchouli oil

Hi,
is the Guaiayl Acetate (typing error?):
1) guaiyl acetate, 134-28-1 (rose tea rose woody spicy green fatty) or
2) guaiacyl acetate, 613-70-7 (sweet woody spicy dry clove powdery smoky)
