How to get the tinctures?
Lisa of The perfumed court will send 2 free vials of 1,5 ml to club members along with any order they pass. If the order is over 25 USD she will send 2 spray of 2,5 ml. In the "comments" field of her order form you should insert your member's nick and which 2 free scents you chose.
We have 4 pheromones at disposition, Hyraceum, Honey bee, Castoreum and Civet tinctures.
You can click on them to open their description page.
How shall we play?
We shall make experiments and tests, a research on these rare and by now extinct materials of classic perfumery (now replaced by chemical substitutes).
I can propose the first experiments, you may propose others and we shall post here all the info we got from our experiences.
At the end we shall have clarified a lot of things in the confusion that surrounds these mysterious scents and possibly discovered new facts.
There will be generous premiums for those who come up with the best experiences and info.
we shall start as soon as a few of you have received their tinctures, so let me know when you do.
Sounds great -- but how will Lisa know that we are part of this group? Is there a promotional code or something that we should enter at checkout from TPC?
Ciao Jim, it is very simple. In the "comments" field of her order form you should insert your member's nick and the 2 free scents you chose.
I work in an office where I'm just about the only man and where the women are always v keen to sniff the various fragrances which arrive for me at work. This should be very interesting and fun. Thanks for the opportunity
smelling is entirely psychology. You could present them not as fragrances (they would be shocked) but as animal extract bases that are used to add sensuality to fragrances. You have a priviledge situation to give us data, women are most receptive to pheromones.
The only downside is that I have to wait until this Friday to order
It doesn't matter what our purchase is as long as it exceeds $25?
Astreaward, Lisa will send 2 free vials of 1,5 ml to club members for ANY order they pass.
If the order is OVER 25 USD she will send 2 spray of 2,5 ml
Thanks for the information on how to get stared. I'll play!
I placed my oder with the Perfumed court. I ordered the Hyraceum and Honeybee, since I already have the civet and castoreum. I ordered Serge Lutens Fille en Aiguilles because it sounds like an amazing perfume from what I read.
I've just ordered some too. Hyraceum and the castoreum. I already have some civet and I have some beeswax but untinctured as yet. That was just too much temptation on TPC though and I had to order some vintage chypres too. Naughty but nice.
