Hi to everyone! I've come into a minor crisis that I guess is a teaching moment for me as a amateur perfumer. I've been working with a client to compose a perfume for their brand - it's been an extremely long process, but we have finally decided on a final formula, we have a launch date, packaging, and we are ready for mixing and bottling. It comes time to order all of the ingredients, and bam! One of them is no longer available from the Perfumer's Apprentice: Green Tea Givco, which I believe is a Givaudan blend. We aren't manufacturing in the type of quantities that will enable me to order this directly from Givaudan. And I've already communicated with the Perfumer's Apprentice to see whether they actually have some available but just don't have it on the website - apparently it's no longer in stock with no plans to ever return. I don't even know if it Givaudan still makes it, even, since I can't find it on their website. I'm in a pickle. I could reformulate but A) it's a key ingredient, and B) I'm so incredibly stressed for time that I'm worried about that option. I turn humbly to you for any suggestions!
