  86. Re: My olfactive review of Givaudan's latest molecule: Cosmone

    What is this musk like compared to Auranone and Teak? And for those who are anosmic to musks such as Habanolide and Ambrettolide, does Cosmone hold out any hope (is it a mix of different families of...

    Re: Elfnotes DIY blog- come and share!!

    Mine is a steam distilled EO from Liberty Natural. Sadly, I don't get any rum tones from mine. The method of distillation does matter, I'll remember to mention it. Frankincense and lavenders come to...

    Re: Elfnotes DIY blog- come and share!!

    Yes, my perfumes are mostly natural (about 80%, usually), but I have some fave aromachemicals also. I'll have to try homofuranol. I particularly love auranone, a mixed musk that I can actually smell...

    Thanks! I love learning more about fragrant plants. I was surprised davana was so NOT floral, it's got no sweetness whatsoever, but really does smell like tamarind, and blends well with citrus, or...

    Elfnotes DIY blog- come and share!!

    Hello, fellow DIYers!
    I've been thinking of a theme to follow for my Basenotes blog, and since I've been DIYing for a few years now, I thought I'd follow the lead of White Lotus Aromatics and devote...
  92. New Aqua Allegorias- Same Fume, Different Color?

    I got to try the 2009 Aqua Allegorias by Guerlain today, and got a little decant of Tiare Mimosa. The Tiare Mimosa is clear, the Cherry Blossom is very pink. 3 ladies and I tested them, and we simply...

    Re: Cyclomethicone question

    For perfumer's alcohol, just make sure it's at least 90% pure alcohol (or the perfume will cloud, and some materials won't dissolve), and that there's no odor. Other than that, no big whoop.
    I've...
  94. Re: If you have tried NR Essence (2009), what do you think of it?

    I found it quite harsh and synthetic. I am anosmic to the regular NR for women, though I hear it is quite delightful. I smelled Essence real good!

    Re: Does anyone like S. Lutens Nuit de Cellophane?

    This sort of sweet floral is nowhere to be found in my collection, except for HM's Magical Moon, because that one has a lot of incense. As far as osmanthus goes, I like mine with the greener facets...

    I find that I've been thinking in the same way as Brielle87 for some time now about the perfume industry, and I agree with her assertions in this thread. I am an amateur perfumer, and a collector,...

    Re: Death of Perfumery?

    What IFRA has done saddens me deeply. I make my own perfumes, using both natural and synthetics. Of course there are synthetic substitutes for many expensive ingredients now, and it's actually...
  98. Re: Musk 'Types' - definitions / defining notes or character. Help please.

    The colorful, romantic names of musks have nothing to do with anything but marketing executive's ideas of what will sell. Habanolide, Exaltolide, Velvione, nitro-musks, and so on, are the chemicals...

    Re: The Death of Jean Patou 1000

    Hurray, Chaya and Grant! I wholeheartedly agree. The dearth of perfume as art (and the often prohibitively expensive niche perfumes that maintain the art) led me to DIY. I've spent several years and...

    Well, you can always buy some frankincense absolute and eo, and put that into perfumer's alcohol! I mean, frankincense is one of those things that smells good all on its own, like hay absolute or...
