    Almost anything with Phenyl in it's chemical name will smell sweet, some close to honey.

     

    Beeswax Abs also has an animalic quality to it.

     

    The other thing to do is to go to a beekeeper, and ask for the hive goopy dregs, the "STUFF" from the bottom of the box, which will include assorted Bee body parts, and many other things, and then tincture that, and you'll have a really interesting honey odor profile.

    You can buy honey absolute, so it must be possible to solvent extract the fragrance from honey. You can also buy butter CO2 extract, which might work well with the honey absolute, given how scrumptious butter and honey are together on toast and crumpets.

    that's disgusting using amputated bee body parts, because I only used essential oils to make my honey lemon perfume, i have like 70 essential oils to make my honey lemon perfume.

    So, how did you do that Ab?   What oils did you use?

    post #12 of 45

    Um. I hesitate to mention it, but you really MUST check out Abner's TV adverts:

    Not sure what effect he is trying to have. In the end I decided it was high art. Made my day anyway...

     

    Best of luck to you Abner.

    So, Um, to defend myself,  and to finish off this discussion for all future readers,...  

     

    Of course all matter is filtered out of the beehive dregs, as all other materials are fitered before placing in a perfume.  But it *IS* a semi-waste product that can be turned to advantage and used in Perfumery, by tincturing.  The result will be honey animalic/musky.  

     

    Abner, All Natural, as you advertise does in fact encompass this tincture, even though you may not wish to use it.

     

    "high art" ? ? ? 

     

    "you really MUST check out Abner's TV adverts:"  Seems perfect for late late late night  rerun channels...

     

    This little bunny will now make like a tree, and leave...   Have a fun time in the Pool, Abner.

    I was being "subtle"Paul... Abner also has another long post where he announces his perfume company, after having learned perfumery "from the internet" "in a week. " Astounding genius. I guess the rest of us are just really slow...

    Love honey absolute. Very floral. Reminds of champaca.

     

    I would be interested in DIY efforts at making the absolute.
     

    post #18 of 45

    Yes of course you were being subtle, so was I...   :-)

     

    Yes, I am then REALLY SLOW INDEED, for it's been now eight years, going on Nine.

     

    Yes, Genius just can't be curbed, can it?  It must RAGE ON!
