    I'm having a bit of trouble understanding this as I'd imagine that ones body temperature on the wrist is, at least, in a room temperature or warm outdoors environment, somewhere near to or over 30 celcius

    certainly one's chest under a shirt and jacket are and many people apply fragrance there - to no detriment ?

    Because when you spray a fragrance onto your warm body it starts evaporating at once. After a few hours ( depending on the fragrance) it's all gone. Spraying on your body, and trying to speed up the blending process are two different things.

    possibly, but I'm (very respectfully!) still not convinced.

    I can think of many times I've carried the same spray vial in a breast pocket of jackets for instance, on a 2 week business trip - and fair enough, while the jackets were hung up the sample was back down to room temperature - but it did spend a good 10 hours a day at jacket lining temperature which I would imagine floats between 30-36c. 2 weeks later thats 100 hours @ the temperature in question.

    again to no detriment?

    doesn't meant to say I don't believe that certain temperatures may become ruinous to fragrances but my guess is that it's not under 40c for the periods of time we're talking about (ie: I'm sure knaqsim wasn't keeping his samples heated for 4 years) 4 years in an attic over 30c I'd give no guarantees of course, but we are talking a matter of weeks at most for the purposes of a rapid maturation technique

    Any thoughts/suggestions on heater/stirrers? Makes, models, quality?
