Here's a new thread started so as not to hijack another thread, about Obscure materials...

In the materials I was browsing, things such as Ambrarome Absolute Synarome, Anethole, Boronol, Camphene, Canthoxal, Corp Racine VS, Cresol, Evernilox, Furfural, Isoamber Super, Isoananat, Madranol, Palisandin, Patchouly Ketone, Prenol, Rhubafurin, Sabinene, Styrene, Trimofix.
Styrene, for example, sounded particularly exciting from the description: "olfactory note: pungent, gassy; slightly fresh-aromatic on dilution, styrax connotation; ; taste: penetrating, gasoil, plastic-like; ethereal ;"
Some of these materails I am familiar with and possess, some I have heard of, but do not hold, and several I have never heard of...
