    Re: benzoin + ascorbic acid = benzene?

    Though ascorbic acid is quite water soluble, it should not be so in essential oils. It does not dissolve to any significant degree in the usual organic solvents, including ether, benzene, acetone and...
  18. Re: Can anyone identify the perfume that came in this bottle?

    Re: "Today I gift my fragrance formula!"

    How do you interpret the Sulphur de Butyle? I would guess either Dibutyl Sulphide or n-Butyl Mercaptan. Either one would end using the perfume mixing room for weeks. Assuming either of these are that...
