    Re: is good sandalwood even a thing anymore?

    90 year old sandalwood - now that's something to sniff! I have some 15 year old sandalwood that is pretty special in my group of aging oils. I haven't been able to get anything close to it but that...

  5. A Slice of Guenther and Arctander History Courtesy of E.S. Mauer

    I have been collecting vintage perfumery books for years and have acquired a decent collection. Last week when I picked up E.S. Mauer's Perfumes and Their Production, I'm sure I got the vapors when I...

    Re: do you like the smell of patchouli?

    Patchouli is kinda misunderstood to be a single note, dirty hippy scent and in most cases when purchased off the shelf, it is . It really transforms into something special when it has had some time...

    Re: Amber gris

    +2 on the Kemp book (which I own and use often for reference). I work with ambergris for my business and your piece doesn't look anything like it. Of course if I were to see/smell it in live time, I...

    Re: ylang ylang and... banana?

    I don't work with aromachemicals so my base naturals only. A week later and the blend is too strong. Its just too much of a good thing.
  9. Re: Article: New subscription service, Scentbird, allows you to pick a scent each month. Win a free

    Andy Warhol's quote was genius. I have specific scents that relive a memory for me and often will wear according to what feeling or memory I want to re create. Great idea Scentbird!

    Re: ylang ylang and... banana?

    Just for kicks, I blended ylang ylang extra with banana CO2 (6:4 drops). I didn't use my best ylang as this is just an experiment but wow, made me cough even though I love strong e.o.'s. I'm going to...

    Re: Meyer Lemon EO Cold Pressed

    I placed my order with Christine and fingers crossed it has a profile close to fresh. I was about to give up on finding it and figured I would have to press those peels myself.

    Re: Onion and/or garlic

    David, now that's interesting about the asafoetida. I haven't worked with mine because it hasn't called me to use it in formula. I also had the idea of letting it age some. I'm pretty big on aging...

    I carry a little garlic e.o. but I found it so repugnant that it was unusable in any type of natural perfume. This coming from a mama who eats durian weekly (so I am not easily offended by sulfur...
