First attempt at making a watermelon scent

So, I'm a beginner at perfumery. So far, I've done hours of research and bought several aroma chemicals from perfumer's apprentice and perfumers world along with all the necessary supplies to make alcohol based perfume.

I saw this post and decided to build a similar formula:


My formula is:
Ethyl maltol 5% (3g)
Calone 10% (3g)
Melonal 10% (1g)
Cis-3-hexenyl (1g)
Floralozone 10% (1g)
Allyl caproate (1g)

For a total of 10g of perfume base to use at a 20% scent load in perfumer's alcohol. It smells pretty good! I'm impressed with it tbh

My question is, how can I improve this? I want to to smell even fruitier. Almost obnoxiously so. Give me your favorite fruity/sweet chemicals. I have some more aroma chemicals coming in, and I might get more later on. I need more middle notes. Also, I plan on making oil based perfume with this scent to put in soaps, so suggestions on scent loads and carrier oils would be much appreciated. ✨

C6 nonenol and nonenal for green rindiness. Butyl acetate for ripe melon fruity character. Ethyl butyrate overdose if you want obnoxious fruitiness.

You could add other aldehydes like hydroxycitronellal and cyclamen aldehyde to increase longevity.
