  1. Sandalwood scent

    Thank you for your answers.
    the original price was 150 Euros for 30ml. They say in their website that the oil is pure and 100% natural. In fact this is a special offer...
    I also asked them via email the production date... to be sure that's not old-dated oil...
    I've bought a lot of their essential oils... And I tasted that the quality is medium-high for some oils and very low for others... So I don't know

  3. Optical Illusions, perceived scents, and the tricky mind

    by , 23rd July 2017 at 11:01 AM (Possum-Pie's making sense of scents)

People accept that this is true if you point it out, but often refuse to believe they have been tricked unless it is irrefutably shown to them.
    I had to physically cover all surrounding squares before I could believe that "A" and "B" are the same exact shade of grey.

  4. Personal Updates, with an Emphasis on Scents

    Note: This has been sitting as a draft unposted since February 2014. I just discovered that I never actually posted it!

    OK, so I decided to switch horses in the middle of the stream; I'll start over.


    It's been over two years since I last posted to my blog, or since I've spent much time on Basenotes, for that matter. The reasons for that are a little bit involved, and I don't want to say too much about that in this blog entry. Maybe I'll save most of it for another one later

  5. Fanciful Transformations


    Odd things come unbidden to mind and assume new associations.

    For example, as I was sitting down to read a rather mundane mystery novel, seemingly out of nowhere I suddenly remembered part of Ariel's song in Act I, scene ii of Shakespeare's The Tempest:

    Full fathom five thy father lies;
    Of his bones are coral made;
