  1. Re: Are there anti-irritants that can be added to perfumes?

    Thank you for this explanation of the difference. So, if i understand this right, if Odeon is sensitive to, say, eugenol, he'll always have some kind of reaction now no matter the level; if it's...
  2. Re: Are there anti-irritants that can be added to perfumes?

    Paul, yep, that's the stuff :-), and it makes the area you apply it to a bit hot. So it's not surprising that a little additional heat would make it downright irritating. As for eugenol, I think...
  3. Re: Are there anti-irritants that can be added to perfumes?

    I don't know if this is possible food for thought in finding a solution, but I used to occasionally wear a perfume oil that I discovered would cause skin irritation -- but only if I applied it very...

    Re: perfume formulas/recipes using glycerin

    I thought I'd let you know I've tried the hedione in different amounts in both things I'm trying to make, and I think (so far...) it's nothing to be too frightened of. When I opened it, I recognized...
  5. Re: Advice on adding a baked/roasted nut scent that doesn't overpower?

    I did receive my PA order, so have now tried the homofuranol out. Edshepp, thanks again; your description was dead-on to what I smell in it (I didn't get any maple at all). I've mixed it up with the...
  6. Re: Advice on adding a baked/roasted nut scent that doesn't overpower?

    Wow, your description answered all my possible questions about its scent, and suggests it would work very well for this. Thank you!

    I've now ordered some from PA, and think I'll try it out with a...
  7. Re: Advice on adding a baked/roasted nut scent that doesn't overpower?

    I'd be interested in hearing how you get on with the pyrazine -- and you're surely correct about being too hesitant, considering it already comes diluted to 1% (just don't spill any, apparently)....
  8. Re: Advice on adding a baked/roasted nut scent that doesn't overpower?

    Thank you; it was looking at the Good Scents "all odors" listing that led me to wonder about furaneol...analyzing the scent of the baked pastry further, it would have to have a burnt-caramelized...
  9. Re: Advice on adding a baked/roasted nut scent that doesn't overpower?

    Quick question: what about homofuraneol -- described in the Leffingwell as "strong roast sweet"? I am seeing it referred to with the descriptors sweet, caramel, "bready", and almond on a couple of...

    Re: perfume formulas/recipes using glycerin

    Thanks for explaining further. This is clearly something I do need to experiment with.

    Re: perfume formulas/recipes using glycerin

    Is that what is meant when its called an exalter? I assumed it meant it provided a kind of harmony...making other notes "better" without taking over. Is that sort-of correct?

    I've been wanting to...
  12. Re: Advice on adding a baked/roasted nut scent that doesn't overpower?

    After reading more (especially the cautionary tales), I think they might require more skill in using than I credit myself with (also, find a supplier who will ship it here...). I've found the...
  13. Re: Advice on adding a baked/roasted nut scent that doesn't overpower?

    Thank you; those sound like the right notes. I'll search for that.

    DrSmellThis, stale junk food from an abandoned 7-11...I can picture that smell all too well, and that's exactly what I'm hoping...
  14. Re: Advice on adding a baked/roasted nut scent that doesn't overpower?

    Looking at the Leffingwell list more carefully, it looks like 2-ethyl-3,6-dimethylpyrazine and 2-ethyl-3-methoxypyrazine look like good possibilities (I'm inclined to avoid anything with "potato" as...
  15. Re: Advice on adding a baked/roasted nut scent that doesn't overpower?

    Hmm, after posting that response about the acetyl pyrazine, I re-read Kennel No5's mention of popcorn and corn chips and re-read the product's description. If corn is a major note, that product's...
  16. Re: Advice on adding a baked/roasted nut scent that doesn't overpower?

    The hazelnut CO2 sounds lovely, if I can locate a reasonably-priced source for it (a couple of the elements I'm planning to use were "better quality" -- i.e., pricier -- so I'd like to keep the...
  17. Re: Advice on adding a baked/roasted nut scent that doesn't overpower?

    I was considering bitter almond (or what is called bitter almond, apparently). Very diluted might take down the dominance of it...

    Thanks!
  18. Advice on adding a baked/roasted nut scent that doesn't overpower?

    This is my first post to the forum; I've been reading this forum for a while (astounding resource for scents). I'm a neophyte blender who's mixed up a few basic essential oil scents; I've decided to...
