    Re: Hermitage Oils and Pell Wall Join Forces

    Well it's natural by ISO 9235:2013 but I doubt it's natural by ISO 9235:1997. This PEA is fermented from 'Natural' L-phenylalanine (found in animal proteins) which is in turn produced from bacteria,...

  94. Re: Vetiveryl & Patchoulyl Acetates - Natural or Synth and who cares?

    As a naturalist, peversely (or a perverse naturalist if you like) I don't think I blame Ventos for passing off a synthetic as natural. I think I am actually grateful. I suspect they are using the...
  95. Vetiveryl & Patchoulyl Acetates - Natural or Synth and who cares?

    These I think are cheap essential oils acetylised or esterified to dumb down the harsh bits and then fractionated. Which is fine if you prefer synthetics, but us sad wanabee naturalists are in a...

    Best read Scents and Sensibilities: Creating Solid Perfumes for Well-being by Mandy Aftel. It doesn't cost much or you can even glean enough from it from the Amazon & Google previews. If you can't...

    Re: What smells like sea salt, beach?

    I mascerate seaweed in oil. Dimethyl Suphide is also useful. Robertet's seaweed absolute is great.

    Re: Recreating A Living Pink Rose

    Actually they have hardly any Rose headspaces :( Roman Kaiser's Meaningful Scents lists 12 rose GC/MS analyses but they have few common aroma chemicals.

    Re: Fabaceae family perfume ingredients?

    I know Gorse is one, and I am working on getting an absolute out of it. Meanwhile the hydrosol is very nice. Lush do a nice gorse perfume which uses mimosa, but I prefer the Caldey Island one.
