    Re: Chandler Burr's Untitled S02E04

    Cookies baking--after the reveal I'm going to show this thread to the perfumers; I'm very interested to see what they'll think.

    sfmedusa, I've spoken with some European scent stores about doing the Series in parallel, and they're certainly interested, but at the moment the logistics of it are, unfortunately, too difficult. I...

    Re: Chandler Burr's Untitled S02E04

    A perfume that gives good dreams--I love "Big Pharma might want to know about this one"--and a new favorite. I'm looking forward to your reaction on finding out what it is. Reveal in a week.

    Mike, I don't know any of the notes, but the perfumer's first name has six letters.

    Yes, and my apologies if that wording isn't clear, guys. SoSoul, that's indeed what I mean: the material in E04 is used as rarely, in a major aesthetic way, as shiso or ginger.
