With German Chamomile..
Stumbled upon this while searching on google.. Weird!
Could be just the heavier molecules in the absolute holding things for longer times, therefore the long drydown. Anyhow, I was actually about other notes which could supplement the Basil and musk....
Hmm.. Seems the main ingredients are linalool and eugenol. Could be that what I like is the eugenol, but I'll make sure. Are there any trace chemicals which could be relevant? I think I'll borrow...
I've started working on a base accord, and wanted to incorporate some Basil abs, because I
really like it's drydown (that's why I didn't use CO2).. The other two components for now...
That's the lack of information I was referring to :)
I'm trying to figure out the middle / base of Egoiste Platinum. Is the main constituent there
Dihydromyrcenol (together with Clary Sage)? What type of Cedar molecules give it the
David - I didn't mean I like them, I meant just what I said, that I don't like most musks, so far
(with a few exceptions).
I'm looking for a (non-powdery) musk with a slight woody or argestic...
I didn't dilute it yet.. Thought it was off, so I didn't even try it. Doesn't it smell funky at 100% to you?
Ok, I'll wait anxiously for your description!
I suggested to dilute it to lower the price.. Another reason could have been convenience, like Hermitage do with Indole, for eg.
Any chance you'll be offering it in 10% as well?
Are you going to test it in blends, A/B-ing it with Hedione?
I found very little information on this (ie - useful information)..
Does anyone have any experience with this? Is it similar in effect and use to Hedione?
If so, how is it different?
As is mine.. You got it from CP?
Ah ha, ofcourse I can spend thousands on these.. :)
It's really frustrating finding musks that I like..
While reading Scent and Chemistry, I came across some musks where C=C's are
exchanged for S.. One example was thia-Ambrettolide, and also came across online
What do you mean by 'technical'?
A bit? :)
It's a real bummer I don't have anything to compare it to. Maybe I'll dilute it to 1% and see..
Maybe I'll get some from Hermitage as well to compare. Does it have an edge over the
other Sandalwood molucules? I have Javanol, Ebanol, Sandalore and Sandela..
What a bummer.. I thought these molecules are supposed to be pretty robust.
The scent is pretty familiar, though I'm not trained enough to guess what it could be. I thought
maybe it was a...
I've recently got some Sandaxol from CP, and it smells pretty funky to me. Where the description
says it's woody, sweet and Sandalwood, I'm getting a pretty funky musk from it, with something...
For me it's kind of similar to Eden's Clear Labdanum. I once mixed the latter with some Guaiacwood
and Sandalwood, and it slightly reminded me of Oud..
With all those smiles, you might have to add some Hyraceum to tone down all that enthusiasm.. :)
Hmm... I only have nutty pyrazine (as well as a few other ones, which are more musty),
milk lactone and acetoin.. Do you think these will work?
Jasmine rice.. Keep encountering that. Does anyone have any suggestions for an accord? I wouldn't even know where to start..
I'm starting to think there's a deeper difference between British and American English
than the usage of fancier words..
I just assumed it was the same as the Oud blend PA sell. Am I wrong?
Sounds a bit different from what I know.. Probably a different sub-specie, or something like that..
Here's some Taro bread :)...
Your description sounds kind of partial.. I'm only familiar with purple Taro, and anything
made from it is *heaven* - at least for me. I strongly recommend getting some (purple) Taro
Hmm.. seems like you're going with the typical food scents..
Haven't been to Thailand, but been to Taiwan, and I think the weather is similar there..
For me the strongest memory is the incense...
I think I read on Hermitage that Bitter Almond oil is mostly Benzaldehyde.. But is this
equivalent to Almond Otto?
Hmm.. Never tried working on the base while there's a top note..
Something I've been eyeing is Cucumber Aldehyde.. But frankly, I have no experience with Irises..
Isn't that illegal?
Though I will probably need to make myself a company for something else..
I don't think I can buy directly from them - I don't these quantities.. I'm just starting out.
I got the impression they won't deal with small fish like me.
The Carbonate sisters.. *sigh*
Hmm.. Maybe Christine could get a sample :)
What are those esters' full names? I'm not familiar with these abbreviations..
Don't roses smell kind of 'holy'?
Labdanum! There was something else that I thought was sexy, but I can't recall now.. maybe Exaltenone?
Where did you score Amberketal? Now I want to try it :)
When you burn oils, things are going through pyrolysis, so some molecules break down. That's why the 'cheap' frankincense drop still smell like incense when you burn them, as opposed to tincturing...
In Borobudur I think it smells like some kind of weird orange-soda-drink.. I can't really isolate it,
but I guess that's the smell? I was kind of surprised at first that the orange lasted that...
A bit off topic, but what's the thing with Sinesal and Anjeruk? I have a sample of Borobudur,
and was wondering about these two..
Hmm.. which fruits?
If you don't set your hopes high, you can play around however you'd like - just take into account what
people have told you here. You might encounter serious problems in the future if you'll get...
Hmm.. Anyone has any ideas how did she get that rose-ghost in Eternity (for men, I think, can't remember)?
I need to get me a copy of that book..
Smells utterly delicious? It's so offensive that I find myself walking around the cloud it leaves in the house after opening the bottle..
And I'm too lazy to check it at 0.1%..
Does anyone know of a good base? I don't even know where to look (TGSC and Perfumer's Search didn't give anything).
Cualito - have you compared the maceration with the live flower? (It's a really...
What continent are you from? Would help us point you out to sources. You might consider replacing some
of the Nutmeg with Eugenol/isoEugenyl or their acetates (which personally I like...
So when those cloudy mixtures clear, it means that the Pinenes finally dissolved?
I've seen it happen, thought it was due to water content, and wondered how come it became clear after a while..
What do you mean by 'bloom' ?
A tantra teacher once told me he could smell the strongest fear of a person from the way Cistus smelled on them.. I got shame :)
I've read about it before, but only now I appreciate how hard it must have been to GC, source everything and mix it.. Such dedication!
I don't know if I was biased by David's opinion when I tried them, but they're both really exciting for me :)
Ed - have you tried that underwear experiment, or are you extrapolating? I don't...
Any idea where can I try some non super mixtures? :)
Cyclemone A is avaiable from CP as Melafleur
Most musks I know aren't really sweaty.. Tonquitone base is a bit animalic, but not really offensive.. Cumin and Methyl Salicylate, on the other hand.. :)
Do you remember how did they make it work? I mean - what other prominent notes worked with it? Was it still gourmand?
Why don't you get both and decide? You can even make a mix more to your liking. And even add Ambroxan to make MissKess Molecule 1.67.. They're all pretty cheap.
Chris (or anyone else) - since I...
Ho.. So did anyone ever manage to make something wearable with coffee, or does it always end badly?
Hmm.. they can grow Frankincense in California? Maybe I can grow one here as well..
I'm really curious about that flower - please please write something if you get a chance at its
Ok.. so I'll report a strange experience. I was following Maritima for a couple of days, and that smell surely
evokes some strong responses.. When it's strong it's metallic-repulsive.. However,...
You could hypernosmic to it.. Maybe you could try 1% or 0.1%?
Though it's not supposed to be one of those 'classic' molecules people are anosmic to..
Or you could work with it a while, and get back...
Sorry for the long delay.. Been a rough week - still recovering from some very emotional workshop.
David - I do have a tendency to over complicate those things. I'll try to get some help from family...
I'm afraid you were too optimistic with the 'surely'.. At my age it's either being a lonely single, or a very occupied parent.
I'm the former. That's the only way I figured as well, but it will...
Still trying to find something local to send you :)
Does it matter if it's powdered?
Does anyone have any ideas how to blind test myself without external help?
All of my previous attempts with coffee didn't produce anything.. Seems like it can only work in gourmand mixes..
I've made something that smelled like Cedar and a pimpled teenager..
Just rechecked.. Still down. I'll email Adam..
Seems like the site has been down for the last two days..
Let's hope Monsanto aren't tapping this forum..
Choya Nakh, Scentenal, Ultrazor, Calone, Habanolide, various oxides.. I think Maltol or Ethyl Maltol smelled a bit metallic (and quite sweet..).
The only difference is that it's much much simpler to find out what's in your AC than what's in your natural oil, or if it was extended. Since the information is available, you only have yourself to...
Hope I'm not violating any rules, but you guys cracked me up with these pictures :
Doesn't sound like it could apply to the ISO definition if you take out the annoying exempli gratia..
Soon in human years or perfumer years? :)
How is the oil acetalized anyway? (I know I know, I should Google it. But it's night here..) :wink:
I tinker past the point of no return, and then keep going. I keep notes, but it's usually not like I passed
something worthwhile in the middle. I'm exploiting these to the max to learn the...
A bit off topic, but how can you see Chamomile and Patchouli from these? Or do you mean you saw them for the heavier molecules? Like Azulene and Patchoulol?
I think I can get you some local propolis.. Though what I smelled here isn't that strong. Is it supposed to have strong scent by itself?
I have some night queen abs.. Doesn't smell like the real flower *at all*, unfortunately :(
(Though it could be an issue of locale).
I'll repeat my past requests here (and add a few) to inspire...
Maybe get some more resins? I would suggest Peru balsam, Tolu balsam, Benzoin and Opoponax resinoid..
I think these will work at any proportions :)
Tremendous bummer. After working with the flowers yesterday, I realize I have a long way to go. There's some freshness/greenness that I can't pinpoint. I tried Hexenol and Cineol.. The latter was a...
Jasmin 51? :)
I think it would have been nice if someone showed that Hedione or IES are anti-carcinogenic..
Well, you made it famous now :)
I really dont mind those Galbanum chemicals at all! They're fun..
So today was Eternity for men.. There's something strange going on with the florals there.. I...
It's pretty cool how the flower kind of has that Guaiac vibe.. I was pretty surprised. Too bad Guaiac heart is still smokey. Would have been nice to have a very milky Guaiac.
Cool! Thanks. I missed the post initially.
Been trying to find some Furfural in small quantities..
What type of Frankincense and extraction are you using? They're pretty different. Have you tried the resinoid? or the CO2?
The most common EO's are pretty heavy on Limonene, so it could be the...
They do.. As do Decant Shop. That's how I got everything :)
I've seen Costus Lactone mentioned somewhere.. Do you have any ideas so far? I will try sniffing the flowers tomorrow, if the heat wave didn't kill them..
1% is very strong, from what little experience I have. If you don't want to be precise, I'm guessing 1 grain in one of those dram bottles from PA, will be around 0.1%
Yes, but I guess compared to zero knowledge, these would give me *some* direction as to what people are talking about.
Plus, it's probably good practice, as I initially have no idea what they should...
If such technologies will exist, they will be exploited way before they get to the realm of
art, probably to make zombies (the state my mom enters when watching reality TV).
And zombies don't need...
Today was Shalimar. Trying to figure out what is giving the powderiness.. Is it something anisic that gives that effect
(either from Vanilla or by adding it)? Or maybe something in the...
Luckily their god isn't listening :tongue:
I guess this issue is related to our ability to smell different functional groups on a single molecule.. I guess this fact is well established, regradless of the theory behind it. Or we venture into...
Hmm.. Weird flowers, huh? Kind of monstrous..
I don't think I have anything adequate.. I only have the 'conventional' lactones..
