Strong modifier
RRUGGER (New York, NY) 1/13/2020 7:41 PM
Floropal may well be another "love it or hate it" AC, but its place in a floral composition can only be appreciated after one learns to work with it. It is a powerful modifier that requires a soft hand, a little too much can make it all smell like rhubarb or grapefruit peel. But it is an interesting material to add a green aspect to Tuberose, if the blend calls for it. It also works to enhance the green aspects of Gardenia, and I suspect it could work well to bring a berry fruity nuance to rhubarb accords. In terms of bitter agents to modify with a touch excessively sweet fruity or floral accords, I think it deserves a a space in a perfumer's organ.

citrus bitterness, slightly grapefruit, feel of body sweat but fresh
Parker Turtenwald (Olympia, WA) 11/20/2019 12:27 AM
Floropal - This embodies a grapefruit, bergamot, sour orange bitterness, leaning more towards grapefruit, but it's the bitter peel effect more so than a juicy sweet grapefruit. (More so the bitterness of grapefruit rather than grapefruit itself, but it does have some regular grapefruit) It's also a little bit sharp and alcoholy, very slightly like phenethyl alcohol but mostly not. This most reminds me of the sort of smell of Citrolate, in terms of the grapefruit bitterness smell, but maybe a little more in the direction of Orange Flower Ether. (and very slightly more like real grapefruit than either) One person said this reminds them of the smell of human body sweat on a hot day, and I can agree with that, but it has that effect in more a fresh sort of way, not really animalic. I think the best way to describe this might be if grapefruit came in the form of a potpourri. I could see it as a replacement for phenethyl alcohol in a fragrance where the smell of rose was desired in combination with the smell of grapefruit. It's a little rubbery (in a good way), maybe a little subtle vetiver effect, would probably work well in modern style men's sports fragrances. There's also a little subtle similarity to Doremox too. There's a lot of aspects to this smell I like, but there's also something about the overall feeling of the smell that I don't like, it's a little too heady/musty, or something, and a bit too "Pamplefleur"-like (for anyone who's smelled that). What's in this smell could probably simulate the mustiness facet in gardenia (maybe not in the most natural way, but it is kind of subtle). It's way more toned down though than Citrolate or Pamplefleur, probably on a more subtle level like Vetikone. Maybe it's much like the fundamental type of smell of Vetikone but without the earth/soil aspect. It's probably the fresh and rubberiness that makes this potentially useful for tuberose.
