Mat Yudov –
I’ve got this material a long time ago and I was trying to avoid for that stupid reason that I was sure it is some kind of variation of pyralone/IBQ theme. Only today I’ve found it again and decided to make a dilution. My gosh, this stuff has nothing to do with isobutylquinoline at all! This odor is really hard to describe. Well, it’s mainly leathery but in the very unique unusual way. It definitely has some tonka and castoreum facets, I don’t find it really fecal. What really surprised me is a fantastic mineral aspect, the sensation of the wet concrete or pebble beach. Absolutely unique material with outstanding olfactory profile!
Properly diluted and blended, this gives interesting effects in a tonka/leather direction. Emphasis on “properly diluted” as it’s far stronger than it might first appear. I find the animalic aspect more reminiscent of hyraceum than castoreum, it has that musty-sweet “stale honey” aspect but more pleasant imo.
A more-sweet leathery note, kind of like a bunch of scraped-out, rough-grade vanilla pods that were left in a leather gardening glove in a musty toolbox for ages. It’s rich and earthy and leathery, phenolic-vanillic as well with some almond and cherry-pit notes. Definitely helps capture the special phenolic nature of vanilla pods and can add accuracy there. Not green at all like IBQ, very “brown”.
