'unperfumed' is the definition.

'head of organisation sullen getting a smaller amount' is the wordplay.
'head of' suggests taking the first letters.
'sullen' becomes 'dour' (synonyms).
'getting' says to put letters next to each other.
'a smaller amount' becomes 'less' (I've seen this before).
The initial letter of 'organisation' is 'o'.
