Hi David, Ramute, Pears and BigBang
David â Iâm classed as an IT Dinosaur, one above an IT idiot! Iâll have a look though and pm you.
David & Ramute â seems Iâm on my own then with my thinking (not the first time!) as I think anyone would be hard pushed to find a fresher effect from a natural than what bois de rose has to offer. Also I really donât get the fresh effect from Coriander leaf essential oil at all and if âbigbangâ was keen to go forward with a Coriander then Iâd opt for the seed which actually has a somewhat citrus quality about it â although I actually would not consider Coriander regardless of plant part at all taking into account what âbigbangâ is seeking.
âbigbangâ says - âI am looking for a freshner. Like Water, Light, Fresh flower effectâ. When I read this I personally think of the fresh air that floods my home when I open up my patio doors on a late summers evening, that cool, refreshing breeze that sweeps into my home and has a soothing, calming and even cooling effect upon me and my family. I say this because maybe I am misinterpreting what âbig bangâ seeks based upon the response from David and Ramute.
Ramute I again have to respectfully disagree, quite strongly actually. Keeping it brief so as I donât put people to sleep (and so as I can watch Shaun of the Dead which is on TV, Shaun Peggs best film) , but Myrtle for me is âwarm with a sweet tangâ, Mimosa decurrens for me is âsticky sweet floralâ. I maybe wrong (If I am I apologise) but I think you mean guiacwood (Bulnesia sarmienti), if so and again for me personally I think it exudes woody, smoky meat qualities with a sprinkling of vanilla and sugar.
None of these materials for me exude a âfresh effectâ anywhere near that of bois de rose. I do genuinely think the Rose Alcohol suggestion by Chris is an excellent material, Iâm pretty new to that myself and I was blown away with the fresh effect I got the first time I played with that. I also stand by my Floralozone comment, that stuff is stunning; really âbubbleâ light, playful with a lemonade sweetness and summer time vibe. I hope this is of a little use to âbigbangâ and maybe a few others that read it. Keep well,
Pears â Appreciating the love!
