This accord by Pell Wall is designed to enable you to add an authentic cherry note to any fragrance. The accord gives the impression of a freshly cut open cherry, straight from the tree, rather than the more benzaldehyde-heavy scent associated with preserved cherries or flavourings. The accord is relatively simple, comprising of just 15 ingredients, but nothing like as minimalist as that presented below. Please note that, despite smelling quite edible, this accord is only suitable for use in fragrance creation and may not be used as a flavouring.
As with all the Pell Wall bases and blends, these are designed to make fragrance composition a little easier. If you buy a total of 2Kg of any one blend or base, or for a fee otherwise, the exact formula for it can be made available to you on a confidential basis – this is to ensure that anyone graduating from hobby work to producing fragrances for sale need not be concerned that they have used a blend they can’t replicate.
On the other hand, if you prefer to develop your own cherry accord you could use Jean Claude Elena’s advice as a starting point (this spare, minimalist accord features in his book Diary of a Nose), as one of his ‘Summary Smells’ (highly simplified odour pictures): Cherry. He says
“I like cherries picked straight from the tree, perhaps because they are a symbol of spring, but mainly because they are crisp, acidic and sugary. The taste we remember is mostly the flavor in, say, yoghurts, and this condemns us to the same bland olfactory reference.
