Yuzu 10
Lemon 5
Orange, Wild 5
Ginger 2

**Fir Balsam Absolute can be added to any of the above accords to add a bit
of a deep juiciness to Hesperidic Accords, as well as to help to anchor
down the ingredients a little with its Base Note properties.

**Any Sandalwood, or JKs Sandalwood Accord can be used in the same

fashionto help fix the volatile materials and extend their life in a fragrance
a little bit, especially if set aside to age together for several months.

**Just a touch of various florals, like Jasmine, Rose, Ylang, Neroli,

Lavender Absolute, etc. can be added to introduce a touch of
voluptuousness to that bright, shiny Hesperidic Accord. Ylang and Jasmine,
in particular, are great to do this with, as well as Neroli or Neroli Petit-
grain Sur Fleur. Just a touch, mind you. Too much, and it will begin to
smell more floralunless thats what youre going for. =)

**Using Bergamot + Petit-grain Bergamot is a great way to add a shiny

olfactory quality that extends well beyond using just Bergamot by itself.
**Litsea cubeba can also be added to add a bit of a fruitier note to the
already fruity citri.

An Interesting Property of Bergamots

There is some belief that Bergamot, when used in very large quantities, also
begins to have a bit of a fixative property. To give an example from the first

Bergamot 250

The rest of the Accord, which I might possibly double or triple the amounts:

Petit-grain, Bergamot 10 20 30
Blood Orange 10 20 30
Kaffir Lime Leaf 10 20 30
Orange, Wild 5 10 15
Mandarin, Green 5 10 15
Tangerine 2 4 6

We also see this, in theory, when making a Chypre, where both Oakmoss
and Bergamot, together, form the core of the Fragrance Family. The
Bergamot, in this instance, is believed to serve as a Base Note, and also to
acquire some fixative properties in such large dosages.
Aromatic Accords
Gin Accords

These recipes are taken from a book for those wanting to distill their own
liquors. Of course, there are some ingredients, like Grains of Paradise, that
have no fragrance value, and are there for their taste, only. So look through,
and keep that in mind.

All gins include juniper as an ingredient along with other botanicals.

Typically a fine gin contains 6-10 botanicals, although the Dutch Damask
Gin has 17 and the French Citadelle Gin has 19 but this could be more for
marketing reasons and has been criticized for lacking direction.

Botanical names:
Juniper - juniperus communis
Coriander - coriandrum sativum
Angelica - archangelica officinalis
Cassia - cinnamomum cassia
Cinnamon - cinnamomum zeylanicum
Ciquorice - glycyrrihiza sp.
Bitter Almond - prunus dulcis, amara
Grains of Paradise - afromumum melegueta **Not a Perfume Ingredient
Bubeb Berries - piper cubeba
Bitter Orange - citrus aurantium
Sweet Orange - citrus sinensis
Lemon - citrus limon
Ginger - zingiber officinale
Orris Root - iris florentina
Cardamon - elletaria cardamomum
Nutmeg - myristica fragrans
Savory - satureja hortensis
Calamus - acorus calamus
Chamomile - matricaria chamomilla
**Ill leave these recipes in their original formats. Just take into account the
grams that they are given in, and substitute for drops/mL/or grams, if
weighing out your ingredients. The important thing here for usis the
ratios of the ingredients.

Absinthe Accords
All of us have heard of some of the uses of Absinthe, particularly with the
Impressionistic Painters of France. In high doses, Im sure some of the
psychogenic properties could begin taking effect. Take also into account the
older methods of distillation, which have changed quite a bit in the last
hundred-plus years, much the same as the way we are making Hungary
Water differs quite drastically from the product of old that was distilled,
rather than a blending of essences, as we are doing it today.

Take note of just how hypnotic these blends can bewonderful little
Accords for perfumers like you and me!

Notes on the Psychopharmacology of Absinthe

As a Chinese Medical Practitioner, I occasionally get folks asking me about

the effects of Absinthe. What are these effects?

I describe them as a cross between pot, ecstasy, cocaine, strong coffee, and
vodkabut only when consumed in large doses. The stuff sold in stores
today is much sweeter, and less herbal-tasting than the Absinthes sold in

Thujone, one of the active ingredients in Wormwood, is discussed

oftentimes as being a liver toxin. High doses can do some Liver
damagebut that will not be an issue in perfumery doses. I think there may
be more to the effects of Absinthe than thujone, namely the highly-complex
synergistic effect of a psychoactive cocktailthat of several essences
blended together. At leastthis is what we hope for!

Other ingredients in the recipes have their own reputations. Angelica Root is
labeled as a drug in Finland. Anise and Fennel Seed both contain potentially
psychoactive anethole. Caraway Seeds are reputed aphrodisiacs, and form
the basis of the German liqueur, Kummel. Coriander is mentioned as an
aphrodisiac in the Arabian Thousand and One Nights, and is said to conjure
up the devil when used in combination with Fennel in the same text (sounds
like together, they very strongly stir the Emotions! Lets get crazy!).
Other recipes call for Hops, a sedative and hypnotic, and Calamus Root,
which contains psychoactive asarones, used as an inebriant by Native
Americans. And then there is the Hyssop, a nervine.

Add it all up, and it sounds to me like one heck of an effect to have in a

Grand Wormwood Artemisia absinthium L.

The wormwood plant (Grande Wormwood that is not to be confused with
Petite Wormwood, or common wormwood or mugwort) is the constituent
that pretty much defines Absinthe. It is bitter in taste and contains an oily
substance called thujone and, of course, it is thujone that is responsible for
the unusual Absinthe effects.

**Make sure to be using True Grand Wormwood, and not Mugwort.

AROMA ENHANCING Materials for Absinthe:

Melissa (Melissa officinalis L.)also known as Lemon Balmadds citrus

scent to absinthe and causes some of the drink's typical green coloration.
Practitioners of natural medicine note that Melissa infusions have a calming

Roman Chamomile (Anthemis nobilis L.), together with Coriander, adds a

background crisp and spicy aroma to Absinthe. Similar to Melissa, Roman
Chamomile is noted for its calming properties and is used in aromatherapy
as a relaxant.

Roman wormwood (Artemisia pontica L.) is sometimes known as small

Absinthe. Unlike Artemisia absinthiumits thujone-rich relative
Artemisia pontica is not bitter. Sometimes called green ginger, this herb is
used primarily for colour and second-step aroma.

Mint (Menta piperita L.) Peppermint! May be added in small quantities for
its aromatic quality.

Veronica (Veronica officinalis L.) is used to add a light spicy note to the
scent and also to deepen the green colour of absinthe.

various recipes for making the liquor. This last recipe, in particular, is not in
whole numbers. Either adjust properly for your easeor measure out by
weight, which will give a beautiful Accord.
Bay Rum Accords
Bay Rum is an interesting ingredient, and making Bay Rum Accords (or
Bay Rum splash colognes) has a very interesting history. For fans of the
Pirates of the Carribean mythologythese fragrances are actually the
descendants of real Pirates fragrances!

Made popular initially because the fragrance of Rum was found to

compliment the new West Indian Spice Islands materials, which were
planted to give easier access to some of the spices from the East. Sailors in
the Carribean began blending raw materials into Rum, and began using these
Rums both as beverage, and also as splash colognes on the face (replacing
Rum for Vodka as the medium).

There is a commercial company called Royall that makes some great

commercial fragrances for those wanting to see how a Bay Rum Perfume
should smell. Im going to include some information from their company
page about their products before introducing a few recipes for making your
own Bay Rum Accords!

Bermuda and Royall History Intertwined

Spaniard Juan de Bermudez discovered the 300-island archipelago of
Bermuda, 600 miles east of the Carolinas, in 1511. Many years later, when
the British began settlement of this island, did they know what they had
found? Most probably yes, because the imagery of treasure has been
associated with the island going back to colonial times.

Bermuda - The Jewel in the Atlantic

Bermuda has been called a Jewel in the Atlantic, its elliptical island chain
has been repeatedly referred to as a string of pearls. So, yes it is a treasure,
but why? Because it is a semi-tropical paradise where there is romance,
adventure, history, culture, civility, excitement, an Anglo-African heritage,
not to mention pristine beaches, pink sand, turquoise seas, iridescent
lagoons, verdant landscapes, candy-colored homes, breath-taking sunrises,
fabulous sunsets, and brilliant, aromatic flora.
No wonder Mark Twain wrote, You go to heaven if you want-Id rather go
to Bermuda. So many more have followed, from Eleanor Roosevelt and
Eugene ONeill to Michael Douglas and David Bowie.
Fifty years ago Mr. Anthony Gaade, founder and first president of The
Royall Family of Fragrances felt the need to capture the essence and spirit of
Bermuda in a fragrance line of aromatic products to share with the island
and the rest of the world.

Anthony J. Gaade
And so it was that Mr. Gaade, a renowned Bermudian yachtsman and
competitor in international races; through vision and tenacity, brought the
very first Royall fragrance to market in 1957.
Royall Lyme fragrance is made from the plumpest freshest, native West
Indian limes. It is nurtured and washed by pure island rains in a recipe that
traces its origins to a very old Caribbean formula obtained from
Harbor Islanders. The secret formula of rare essences has a total of 78
ingredients. The resulting Royall Lyme is cool, zestful and refreshing, as
perfect for the work place as it is for play.
Royall Lyme, an instant success
Royall Lyme, was heartily endorsed by former Bermuda Governor, Sir
Edwin Leather and was presented to the British Royal Family on their last
official visit to Bermuda.
In 1960, when Royall Lyme was introduced at Brooks Brothers New York,
it was an unqualified smash hit. The fragrance is still sold there today. Not
long after, Royall Lyme went international to London, Milan, and beyond.
Following Royall Lyme, Mr. Gaade created other fragrances which capture
the essence of Bermuda. Royall Spyce, Royall Bay Rhum and Royall
Muske. The Royall Mandarin fragrance joined the other successful family
scents in 2001 followed by Royall Vetiver in 2006 and finally Royall Rugby
in 2011.

Royall Fragrances
Even Mr. Gaades original packaging for the Royall Family of fragrance
reveals his desire to keep the Bermuda theme. The handsome packaging is
reminiscent of the Bermuda of old. The bottles are of semi-hand-made glass
from original clay molds with antimonial pewter-colored lead crown caps.
Molded on each bottle is a crown and lime cluster with the words ROYALL
LYME and on the bottom of the bottle ROYALL LYME LIMITED. Each
bottle has the fragrance name and crown in raised glass on the back, with a
distinctive colored labels on the front.
Each fragrance bottle is individually wrapped in fine parchment with a
crown wax seal. These seals are made with the same wax used by the Bank
of England. Quality standards of care and attention to detail are found in
every piece.

Mr. Gaade's vision becomes a reality

Mr. Gaades original vision is today a reality. The essence and spirit of
Bermuda, sparkling jewel and garden paradise, reside in every Royall
product. Mr.Gaade says, In the Royall Family Fragrance, we believe we
have a truly unique range of prestigious gentlemens toiletries and grooming
aids directed to the discerning user and carrying the Bermuda message
A pretty cool story, isnt it!?

**Keep in mind, if browsing through their webpage, that what we call a

Splash Cologne was, historically, called a Lotion. Youll see this on
their products pages, so dont be confused.

A review of Royall Lyme from

True to its name, Royall Lyme starts with a strong lime blast. It is refreshing--fruity and
juicy without being candy-like. It evokes all parts of a lime, the aromatic rind, the juice
and the pulp. I would not say it is sweet necessarily, but a balance of sweet, tart and
bitter. The juicy part of the opening fades rather quickly, but the bitter lime rind lingers,
and is joined by subtle spices (clove, cinnamon), bay, and sweet resins (benzoin).
Eventually, RL starts to take on a dry floral powder note which I would guess to be orris.
From time to time, I catch whiffs of lime rind, which adds a pleasant, slightly sour edge.

I have only tried one other Royall fragrance, and with RL, I am starting to see that this
house tends to produce non-fussy, straightforward and classic cologne water. Royall
seems to have a house base, which consists of resins, bay and spices with faintly
present floral notes. It is very pleasant, and is fresh and clean smelling without being
soapy. The bay note does add a "barbershop" sense to the composition, but in RL, the bay
is quite subdued. This is preferable since to my nose, bay can easily hijack a fragrance--
as a single note it is strong and long-lasting, so I appreciate the deft use of it in RL.

RL was originally intended for men, but its overall balance of fruit, floral and muted
bay/resin base makes this very wearable for a woman. As with most cologne waters, the
longevity is rather poor, but most of these types of scents were intended as an after bath
or aftershave freshener. Total development took 3-4 hours, and the deep drydown is
soft bay, benzoin and a bit of sweet powder.

Giving you any ideas yet??

**Orris will be a solid or semi-solid waxy material.

I suggest thinning it out with JKs Sandalwood Accord, or, if youd like
to cut it with some Carrot Seed EO, that could work nicely, as well.

I recommend sticking with an Orris that is a minimum of 10% Irones. 15%

would be even better.

**Orris products that are lower than 10% are usually blended with a carrier
oil to make them more affordable. These work OK for oil and solid
perfumesbut do not work well in French-style perfumes, as they are
usually blended with non-alki soluble oils like Jojoba or Almond Oil.

I suggest tincturing some Cumin Abs down to 2%. At this small of a

dilution, youll be able to get a clearer sense of its sweat note.

If wanting to stay Alcohol-Free, I suggest diluting Cumin Abs into JKs

Sandalwood Accord down to a 2% dilution.
