HD: a tamed Fahrenheit (Dior) merged into Shiseido's Basala

I've received two beautiful new aroma chemicals from Hexapus.nl, which i liked to give a try: Acetofenon and Mahagonate.
The hawthorn aspects from Acetofenon and the green, peppery, wood aspects from Mahagonate tempted to
look for a marriage. My first association with pure Acetofenon was Dior, probably the Hawthorn; Mahagonate reminded 
of the long ago scent of Basala from Shiseido.
 
I like the dry violet, raldeine and ionone  aspects of Dior's Fahrenheit. However, for my daily taste it's to bombastic.
Although i've used the same ingredient list one would use to compose a Fahrenheit look-a-like, i've twisted
and bend the amounts towards a scent that mimics Shiseido's Basala (Basara): more towards a soapy, creamy,
dry and sweet balsam. Still enough dryness, less bombastic. The Iso E overdose is still there, the Ionones are tamed
and the Chamomile is introduced to bend towards a powdery, soapy, sweet effect.

And of course, this formulation brought together the Acetofenon and Mahagonate in a well balanced scent.
