    Default Another threat about how to get irone alpha in the us

    Hi,

    I am looking for a small quantity of irone alpha. (E.g. 1-2 grams) I know this is a perennial question, and may not be worth starting a new thread, but the previous threads I am aware of (http://www.basenotes.net/threads/373...a-Irone-source and http://www.basenotes.net/threads/295...nd-Alpha-Irone) make my quest seem like a dead end.

    So, here it is again: do any of you have suggestion as to how to get my hands on irone alpha in the US? I havenít made any progress looking for options online, but maybe I am missing something. I live in the NYC area, but I havenít made any progress finding options locally.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

    You could try requesting a sample from Vigon

    Boy, David's going to love this threat..
    Anyhow, from what I've seen your only options would be Hermitage or Perfumer's World. Both might be expensive on shipping, but look at it this way - some of us have to keep paying those shipping fees both for shipping from the US and from Europe..

    Thanks!

    I have heard lots of good things about hermitage from people in the UK, so I'm assuming they are reliable. I haven't found much about ordering from perfumer's world. Do you have experience ordering from perfumer's world? If so, do they seem to be reliable, and to have good quality chems?

    Thanks so much!

    Hmm, can they be convinced to send samples to individuals? I thought they only sell to registered companies, or at least to people willing to buy bulk.

    Vigon will want to establish your credential before they will send you any of their free samples Iím afraid. If they didnít do that theyíd be forever sending samples to every hobbyist in the US and beyond, at vast cost to themselves. On the other hand if you can do that, and are willing to buy a few Kg of things from them, then they will happily send you some Iíve no doubt.

    Happy irone hunting!

    I've ordered from Perfumer's World twice. I can't really compare to other vendors, as I usually order one of each, but I guess their products are ok. I'm not saying great - not sure why.. Could be the bottles they ship in, or could be the quality. Shipping is a bit slow to Israel, and they take some time before shipping after things are settled via email.

    Thank you all for your input! I am starting to think that the easiest way might be for me to befriend local noses..

    The hunt continues!
