Just to keep you vaguely informed!
Just to keep you vaguely informed!
But now I want to know what the update is! :)
Has there been any update to this update? My Marconi is on the fritz and the internet is wrecking havoc here too!!!
Really looking forward to the next round of samples! :bath:
Maybe it's a new widget that digitizes perfume samples and sprays them through your computer speakers!
Anticipating the update...how soon is "soon" Grant?
(you've mastered vague - bravo! <cheeky grin>)
I've never been very good at waiting, but am getting more patient as the years go by... still...
<quivers in anticipation - or trepidation - of an update>
OK, am gonna shoot myself in the neck soon...
Ground Control to Major Grant..........
This sounds like such fun! I just got back from a natural perfumery workshop with Ayala Moriel in Vancouver, and I would love to join in a future fragrance project. For now, I'm happy to observe.
Kevin, I was thinking about Vol De Nuit on my Rapture day redeye back to NYC and stumbled upon your review. This was you? I know you're a big Mitsouko fan; sorry I ragged on it! Reading this review, if it was you, then we're even :)
But you read my mind about what is still a favorite Guerlain along with Chamade and L'Heure Bleue. Why hasn't CdG expanded on this theme?
What ever happened with this "project"? Is it in limbo?
Yes, whats it been? 16 months?
I'm not surprised. I apologise, again. I truly am sorry for how long this is taking. The fault lies purely with me, and not CPL.
Here's the current status. CPL currently have the feedback you all made on the three fragrances and are currently making 3 modifications of each scent. They have had these for about a month. I'm not entirely sure how long this stage will take, as they are doing this for us at no charge, so obviously paid jobs take precendent.
In the next few days, (I hope) I will publish the feedback you all made publically on the site, so you can all view it.
I will let you know what is happening, as soon as I know
Once again, please accept my apologies, and I'm happy to answer any questions or concerns you have on this thread or if you want to email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Well, I'll just come right out and say it... this project is dead in the water.
February will mark 2 full years since this initiative began, and members participating in the "sampling program" have paid our monies, and have bugger all to show for it.
Basenotes and CPL Aromas have an obligation to keep participants informed, and that means more than once a year.
I find it incredible that this project has slipped from the radar, much in the same way Basenotes Magazine also met an untimely demise.
Can we just talk straight for a minute, Grant? I'll ask what others are thinking and ask if you actually plan to see this project through?
It does seem a little unkind to all those who put an effort into this. :(
I enjoyed the pure irony of seeing the title of this thread: Update Coming Soon, with the last post being Grant's, dated 28th June 2011 01:18 PM (which wasn't actually an update at all.) But, I'm with Dimi and Suga on this.
I do expect a full refund of my $100 participation fee.
I really want to see this project coming through, and that we will have a proper Eau de Basenotes to show for it, but the lack of progress is alarming. Can we speed things up and have an end product within 3 months?
The project will still continue. There has been various setbacks my end and CPLs end. My apologies for the lack of communication, but I'll be sending everyone participating an email later today.
