Oh come on bshell, play with us :grin:.
Don't sniff anything! :wink:
Hope you will feel better :2vrolijk_08:
I just wanted to say if we will have any rules (beside not smelling FeA) that we should agree upon few things...
It is not competition, but I would like to...
I haven't started yet, since we still don't know who will formally participate. Yes I can try without participation here, but I would like to participate. :rolleyesold:
There is beautiful fir...
Selection of theme:
Serge Lutens: Filles et Aguilles
Selection of participants:
max. 5 participants until April 10
1. Our creations should be done and sent by 15th...
Interesting! :) How about deadlines? :D
If Kenzo isn't using synthetic, their perfume would cost 10x more :D
Maybe this: http://www.aftelier.com/black-tea-absolute.html
example of natural one?
Lime is attractive note to lift up blend :) At least in my case :)
Should we also include Fir balsam or it is separate from this? However, balsam is amazing.
Every time when I make scent - it is always too medicine like :)
I used essential oil (vetiver) and the scent was amazing! I couldn't believe. At first I though it will be too earthy /dirty even, but later... so cozy scent...
How would you classify hay?
Top, middle or base note?
So far, I haven't diluted EO's in anything. I fear I won't be able to smell them enough :( I kind like them with their full strenght :)
OR maybe I am wrong and I am loosing a lot of ingredients? :)
I haven't tried many Ayala's scents, but I've noticed that many natural perfumes have that "natural touch" which is not always positive, but Ayala somehow manage to wrap it so wonderful that...
I don't have full recipes, just ingrediants:
I don' like this scent. It has very unpleasant beginning and although it gets better - still... not enough for me.
I couldn't resist to try it immediately after Dark oudh....
where ever you are, this is my review:)
SWEET & NUTTY SPICE
First minute: Old closet, scent is trong and warm. After a minute, I smell lighter version of my 1st impression. Spicy...
I've sent him oils so we will see if he will return to confirm that he got them :thumbsup:
Having such a great experience with FragrantCloud, Irina and Doc Elly, I decided to offer my samples of things that I've made (I am afraid to call them perfumes), so I am calling everyone who is...
Since it is opened, I will write my review for Irina's perfumes (although I am missing one):
I've tried Forever 19 and it reminded me of Carolina Herrera 212 - sugar free:) It also reminds me of...
I am also interested :)
Are they any left :)
You should have legal person in order to sell...
so that you can give bills and pay taxes or whatever...
Etsy, ebay and others.. I guess the sellers are under condition of those sites...
irina, just to let you know - I've sent my samples today and when you catch time, you can send me as well.
there is no hurry for anything...
this should be joy!
I am OK with individual swap and I respect decision of the owner regarding feedback.
I would like that my "perfumes" are revised through PM.
Looking forward to receive your samples...
I would like to make individual swap.
I like to keep it more personal plus the fact that I don't have enough samples at the moment...
Since I already swapped with dear Elly and I am in process to...
I don't mind to send all to Irina, but I don't have for everyone now..
I must see :)
For me it is better one on one... not even sure that I have (at this moment) 6 packages to swap.
I'm complete amateur :) but would love to join :D
On me: Smoky, dry and sexy... Like I passed near sexy guy who smokes pipe...
It is strong, impressive and I cannot wait for my husband to try :D
me! me! :)
I got samples also! Thank you!!!!!! It took 20 days but they are here:D
Luzonica was my first (so far only) scent to try.
Full of tropical fruits... maybe for my taste too much...
do they ship internationally? (europe)
you tried also? :(
do they ship internationally?
I've sent them 2 e-mails, no reply...
I shouldn't read this :D
I just peeked for a while :D Very nice!
I am so worried where to buy fragrance/synthetic oils ... if I find great offer, than they don't ship to my country :(
what if you have 70% alcohol?
bergamot is citrus :)
this might help or confuse you more:
what does "cut" means?
is it possible just to add few drops with rum or?
check online for best oils to blend with vanilla...
It is very hard, when you start with exploring, to start from zero...
I think we should all give some effort to create mutual table of trustworthy companies... specially for EO.
Do we have, on this forum, a list of trusty companies that sells EO and/or FO?
will bit shaking help ? :) hahaha
did you try at UK ebay?
you are forgetting international shipping :D
i have jojoba now. i think things will be better.
in the future, I will check some web sites which some informed people gave me and I believe with a...
In the end, I did use a bit of lavender... :)
thank you very much.
i bought jojoba yesterday!
cannot wait to start mixing!
I don't want to read this topic :D :D I will get even more tempted! :D
I bought around 200 pieces of different oil perfume as 1 ml sample...
uh... don't want to count $...
My mom and my best friend are aromatherapists.
There is so many beautiful thing that you can do for yourself and people around you.
I will tell you my small experience:
a) air refreshing - you...
I wore it today... I don't find it interesting...
It is quality perfume, but not my style...
so, you would exclude Fragrance oils and search for a possible problem is carrier oil or EO?
thank you for writing.
i don't have answer because I received those oils after I ran out of jojoba.
But I must say this also for patchuli and, I think, frankincense.
All those base notes simple...
I passed a training of natural perfumery but I since it is a expensive sport, I am "playing" with fragrance oils more than essential oils.
I have so many question regarding...
there is something special about JN.
it don't know if it is almond that i adore or just some crazy combination where it is very hard to point fingers in any note...
i can say that people notice...
It took around 18 days.
Bottles are, actually, OK.
Specially because it will stay in my house :)
i got today their 5 ml roll on bottles.
i like them BUT on some glass bottles there is like a scratch (not so visible or strong).
i don't know if that is problem of the manufacturer...
same question but also:
how to know which EO is really quality? what kind of certificate it should have?
i have enough problem with shipping to croatia and i don't want to purchase some bullsh...
I am very satisfied with a quality.
if you don't want to buy 100 at once, you can buy (like me) 48 and since the quality for yourself and than later purchase more :)
Many of sellers...
I cannot stand lavender :)
If you go for juniper - don't put too much :) Like I did :D
I've put it in my first natural perfume and it was very dominant... it was possible to smell it even in drydown...
I love almond! One of my favorite.
What about almond milk or whatever it is called? the scent that we find in liquid soaps or lotions...
read several post above.
I used genuine benzoin in jojoba and it stayed on the bottom of the bottle.
i would like to experiment wit f.coconut oil!
I also think it is somewhere between top and heart... but closer to top.
I definitely forget to have fun :D
There is a lot of things ahead of me!
I will try to find some other carrier oil as well... just to check.
Which one can compare with jojoba regarding...
I bought them in one Croatian store. I don't have any info if there were diluted or not. Do you know how could I check that?
Regarding Jojoba, I heard it is oil but it is also called wax.
thank you very much, but i need more info: what is SOS? :)
I bought 48 1 ml empty vials on ebay.
it cost me around 5 USD with shipping.
i think the seller is: ct_taiwan or something like that.
for me, fresh and sweet and starkly would be Lilly of the Valley (of course, synthetic).
what is DPG?
I don't want to take any other carrier oil beside jojoba because it is very stable.
But in the same time, I don't know how can my perfume (where concentration of perfume goes till 40%)...
where would you put it according to longevity?
Top, middle or base notes?
I am facing with same problems :(
Did you try any other perfume oil? I am under impression that other companies don't use jojoba at all.
Where do you buy benzyl salicylate?
what is the price of these kind of chemicals?
I don't want (at least not yet) to change my carrier oil. I just want to know if it is possible to make it thiner... and maybe this other oil perfumes that I've tried they used something else......
My oil perfumes are pretty thick! I am using Jojoba but I don't like how thick it becomes...
Is there anything that I can do to make my perfume less thicker?
