    Don't know how the weather is at your place, but here it's 36 degrees Celcius; and that's considered HOT in The Netherlands.shocked.gif

    Time for a more bounty-island-tropical-perfume experience.

    Not for the fainthearted. This "Gin & Tonic Lemon Fizz" sizzles and breaths sunshine, beaches, sparkles and lemon. Lemon all over you.

    The pimento adds to the gin experience. The sea breeze shimmering through this cocktail comes from the ambergris families
    in combination with the "fresh air and ozone" booster calone.
    Give it a try, it will do great around cocktail hours in sunny places ;-)

    The formula is now available on my website.

    Happy perfuming!

    It was 50 Celsius in Phoenix end of June, and 54 C in Death Valley...

    What are you whining about 36C for? shocked.gif

    This guy cooked an egg in his frying pan on the asphalt street in Phoenix then:

    Thankfully, my family vacation bus trip went past Death Valley a week later than the enormous heat wave...

    This is the weather to put your tinctures out in the sun for organic heating / infusion...

    We're all delicate little flowers in Europe, Paul!

    Nice video - thanks - Death Valley made the news over here, although the melting traffic light in KSA or Kuwait didn't,as far as I recall anyway.

    I'm still trying to find the picture....

    Would our tinctures like the intermittent monsoon conditions?

    Gin & Lime, anyone?

    Studying up on the ingredients of gin, I created a similar gin and tonic cologne but it's quite different from the one given at the top of this thread. It uses many of the ingredients that are naturally used to give gin its characteristic flavour, such as juniper, coriander, etc. and there are no synthetics in this so you could even use it in drinks. These are given in drops and most are from 10% dilutions in alcohol.

    Juniper 19

    Lemon 8

    Lemon zest squeezed over funnel, about 1.5 sq in

    Coumarin 2

    Coriander 20

    Pepper (black) 1

    Cassia 1

    Cedrat 4

    Petit Grain 2

    Frankincense 4

    Mandarin Green Fraction 3

    This was very good, but it has almost no base, so only lasts 30 minutes. But super for first impressions and a real fresh up.

    Funny that, some of them last 'though ;)

    Ha! thanks for the cue - I actually have several cocktail-inspired fragrances in my range now, which probably says a good deal about my drinking habits as much as anything. Gin and Lime was inspired by a martini though, so a bit risky in extreme heat as they are a bit dehydrating.

    This one is gin martini with cucumber - so a little like another of Jeroen's formulas:

    Plus of course Artemis is based on the key herb in both vermouth and absinthe:

    This was very good, but it has almost no base, so only lasts 30 minutes. But super for first impressions and a real fresh up.

    If you wanted to make this last a good while, and don't mind adding synthetics, you could try a fair amount of ambrofix / ambroxan, some Precylemone B, and a blend of musks such as Cashmeran, Ambrettolide, Ethylene brassylate and perhaps some Romandolide or Galaxolide. If you want to emphasise the sparkle you could try some Dimetol too, which works well with citrus.

    Of those only the ambrofix/ambroxide is edible I think, but in any case it's going to be seriously powerful in a drink and the ambrofix tends to fall out of solution as soon as there is any water present, especially if it's cold.
