Thanks Paul, for sharing this!
Cuir HF Synarome. I just received this lovely material in an order from Perfumer's Supply House (great service, top notch!). Amazing rich leather with orris, spice, and smooth incense notes.
Interesting, I had not realized the Flex/Shalimar connection! Thanks for the information!
I'm curious if anyone is familiar with the scent of long discontinued Flex Shampoo and Conditioner of the late 1970's?
The fragrance, from my memory, was a Musk/Sandalwood/Balsamic and perhaps...
Thanks Cacio. What a shame when the original classics are re-formulated beyond recognition. I suspect the formula I loved was also not true to the original.
I would pass out from joy if we had L'Aritisan at our TJ Maxx in the States. Tea for Two is one of my all time favorites and I sincerely hope the current formulation is as good as the original. ...
I have lovely memories of Quelques Fleurs which I wore as a teen in the late 80's. It was a gentle and classic floral. I recently ordered some samples off of ebay (which I know can be...
Excellent info,...thanks Irina.
This is very helpful. Thanks, David.
Thank you, David. For purposes of diluting crystalline substances, or substances that don't disolve easily in alcohol, what is your preferred diluent? Or do you recommend having both on hand? (I...
Interestingly enough, I was just thinking how so many bathroom air-fresheners over the years have been lilac scented. I enjoy lilac but care has to be taken not to unintentionally conjure the scent...
Is IPM less likely to develop an off odor?
Without a doubt, my sample of Tilianol is more refined and less functional smelling than the one simply called "alpha trepineol". But it does still have that "note".
Thanks, David! Much appreciated.
If anyone out there has the more floral smelling Alpha Terpineol, if you could please let me know where you purchased it, it would be greatly appreciated! I...
Thanks for your replies. (and thanks for the formula, Pharmacist Blender :)
I have used alpha terpineol in some formulas and have been pleased with the material's contribution..I enjoy when...
Most descriptions I've seen for alpha Terpineol describe it as "pleasantly floral and reminiscent of lilac", however my two samples are more pine-like than floral. I'm curious...how would...
This is a thread with a lot of valuable advice!
I would add that I've experienced a "temporary anosmia" to certain odorants from trying to sniff them undiluted or at too high a percentage (its...
thanks, Paul. A musk confection does sound intriguing in its own right, though :)
Thank you, Pears!
But..but...I must have all the musks! :cry:
(thanks for your reply, Paul!)
I'm curious if anyone knows of a resource for Nirvanolide in the US? I cannot seem to find it at Perfumer's Apprentice, CreatingPerfume, or The Perfumer's Supply House. Thank you!
I'm curious if anyone knows a supplier in the USA for Dorinia SA E? I see perfumers apprentice has the SA. Tia!
Never mind. Paul....I see it on printasia for $35...they have the other book for twenty something, so it may be the store you are referring to :)
Thanks, Paul. I'm kind of obsessed with perfumery books. If I can find it for $20, I would purchase it right away. Right now the best price I can find is over $40 shipped. Do you recall where you...
Does anyone know if there is a difference in the perfume formulations featured in these two books, both by H. Panda:
Perfumes and Flavors Technology Handbook
The Complete Technology...
Interestingly enough it smells quite a bit stronger today, over twenty four hours after I first dipped the test strip.
Thanks for your feedback, everyone!
I find my sample of. Berryflor to be extremely faint when evaluated, both in dilution and full strength. I smell it as an extremely faint and delicate berry floral, however I have seen this...
Old Will Knott has the BEST customer service. Very prompt and extremely helpful. Service like theirs is a rarity nowadays. I highly recommend them!! (I purchased MY Weigh i401 from them and it is...
What a great idea, and I also love the Andy Warhol quote! Please enter me to win a subscription, and many thanks for the opportunity!
Hi Chris, thanks for the link! I'm curious, you mention you would replace it with the 2000 model, but it looks like it does .01 grams readability, not .001?
Thanks again :)
Thanks for link...the ink to your Radwag scale goest to a "page not found". Do you happen to have the model number?
Thanks, Gido. I often dilute my materials in 1oz Boston round amber bottles, and for the life of me I cannot remember how much they weighed before I tared the scale to zero!
My My Weigh iBal 201 has finally died after about eight years of use. It is time to weigh my options (ha-ha) for a new scale.
The My old Weigh iBal 201 measured in increments of .01 grams, and...
Thanks, Chris and dcampen!
Thanks Sebastiano and Chris, for putting my nervous mind at ease :)
Over the years, the matter of sda and undenatured alcohol has been discussed on various boards, and it enough to make your head spin! It is hard to make heads or tails of what I've read.
Thanks for the info....but now I'm nervous again, lol. Just so I don't have a panic attack when I fill my glass bottle from my metal gallon container into a glass funnel, is...
Thanks , Chris, this is helpful info...I appreciate it!
I hope this thread is useful to other Indie Perfumers and hobbyists, too. It is not a topic that is discussed very often, and so important!
Oh my. Thanks for your reply and detailed info, Chris! I will be certain to decant the alcohol on a tiled surface with an open window, or outside.
However, my studio space is carpeted (with...
I was wondering if any of our more technical members have any tips on the safe use of alcohol for perfumery. I am very careful not to use it near open flame, however I just read this post...
