Of course, the other issue I'm battling with is that I've currently got only 27 ingredients at my disposal, which, when you consider that a professional perfumer has over 1000, is pretty pathetic. But then, obtaining more ingredients means spending more money, and I've got even less of that right now. Is it possible to make a green fragrance out of ingredients which were purchased mainly with the intention of making woody orientals? Probably not. But I'm going to keep trying.
Vert 12 contains (in no particular order):
violet leaf absolute
and of course gamma-Nonalactone
Any views from anyone who knows whether the above have the potential to turn into something pleasantly green would be welcome. When I get a chance to tinker with the formula again, I'll publish a new post.
Ciao for now.
