A fragrance description is never false, never true. Only with a GC, only by trial and error reconstructing a perfume you can be sure that "X note" is really inside, no matter wich molecule it could be. After years of working with raw materials you learn to be humble in front of a perfume that hides its secrets. You might work with 1000 rawmaterials out of other several thousands in the lab. But the perfumer who did that fragrance works with a 1000 that is different from yours.
Fragrance - the art of molecules - as said Christophe Laudamiel.
