  3. Re: Article: Sandalwood Dreams, Part 8: Uses and Markets + Sandalwood Oil Giveaway

    That is a great note description Pkiler. I have a smelt it too and called it a urinous note. This is not always a bad thing in perfumery which as you state can be masked. Sometimes it is a fleeting...

    Those eucalyptus were planted in Issan in North East Thailand and drained the water table before anyone knew what was happening. They have cut them down now; a beautiful tree but only in its native...

    Re: Fragrance in Bangkok, Thailand

    I think that the online conclusion is that the 'watered down" comment was an ironic joke via Twitter which was taken as fact, based on the person that said it.

    Peace David. The Perfumed Chamber was a thrill to discover. Fumigation tent; photo please. I have been bathing in Australian album! Wafting your name into the draw now.
  37. Re: Article: Sandalwood Dreams, Part 8: Uses and Markets + Sandalwood Oil Giveaway

    It is a 'feel good' story in many ways especially as the effort has been successful. A nice change from the nightly news which I never watch. Sometimes I spray Trayee (Mysore Sandalwood) on my left...

    Bridge of Birds, counting you in now. The ancient pricing became far too complex in translation to calculate interest! I liked the transmutation story too.

  42. Re: Article: Sandalwood Dreams, Part 8: Uses and Markets + Sandalwood Oil Giveaway

    Much nicer than an oil-rig drill! I often wonder what happens to the vacuum left under the earth or sea by the extraction of petroleum oil. Whoops, off topic. Your Persian name is flying into the...
  43. Re: Article: Sandalwood Dreams, Part 8: Uses and Markets + Sandalwood Oil Giveaway

    Ah, Kantofox, I think that is because this oil is actually available while the Mysore is not available at all except for vintage vats held by perfumers. I know what you mean though with Supply and...
  44. Re: Article: Sandalwood Dreams, Part 8: Uses and Markets + Sandalwood Oil Giveaway

    Hmm, I do not have the facts on that. Maybe there is low-grade oil with less alpha and beta sanatol that is not commercially available. There are other elements as well as those two that perfumers...
  45. Re: Article: Sandalwood Dreams, Part 8: Uses and Markets + Sandalwood Oil Giveaway

    Ah, yes Woodgirl. As this is a commercial operation the date of harvesting is maximized for yield. It is likely though that some trees will be left to mature to see what the oil yield difference is -...
  46. Re: Article: Sandalwood Dreams, Part 8: Uses and Markets + Sandalwood Oil Giveaway

    And thank you for reading Mahboub. Yes it is all about the aging after getting this far. How about a photo of your vintage oils? I like different ones on each wrist to enjoy the nuances. You are in...

  49. Re: Article: Sandalwood Dreams, Part 7: What does it smell like?

    You read Pāil? That is seriously cool. Are you from India or South East Asia? Or are you a fragrant monk? Was Purna a story you knew from your own reading?

    Yes Dries van Noten has sandalwood from...
  50. Re: Article: Sandalwood Dreams, Part 7: What does it smell like?

    Indeed Ipp. Love the Aussies. They are fair dinkum players in playing field that used to previously attract smugglers, thieves and pirates.
