6.14.22

AIMS

To make an orange blossom accord.

THEMES

Floral, green.

STRENGTH

17.4% (EDP)

MATERIALS OF INTEREST

Oranger crystals - neroli, powder.

Auralva - floral, neroli.

NOTES

Orange Blossom is an indispensable note in perfumery and knowing how to make this accord will definitely help me to add elements of this classic flower to future blends. I followed the recipe that came with my introduction to perfumery kit.

This was my first time weighing out materials. Prior to this fragrance I had only measured by drops. Using the scale was more accurate.

I dropped too much petitgrain essential oil into my mixture and the final accord leaned green/bitter. Still pleasant with some wonderful orange blossom DNA to it though.
