    Default Meyer Lemon EO Cold Pressed

    Amazingly, I found a supplier for this oil that I've been looking for...
    (wish it was distilled) but I suppose I can't be picky.

    What do you all think, should Perfumer Supply House stock it?

    I didn't realize you were connected to Perfumer Supply House. I'll check it out.

    I have Lemon - California from PA how different is Meyer?

    Christine at PSH asked me to buy a kilo, so it will be stocked at PSH soon.

    Of course it's a lemon, but the trace elements are different. Maybe you're not so familiar with the fresh fruit and how it differs from a regular table lemon then...?

    Other Perfumers have also written about the Meyer lemon, a bit of googling will find them.

    Cold pressed Lemon (any cold pressed Lemon) will contain a lot of the chemicals which are especially skin sensitising , and which IFRA is (are?) so keen to restrict. These Psoralins are found in Lime, Grapefruit and Bergamot as well. The advantage of distilled oils is that those materials can be reduced or removed; the advantage of cold pressed oils is that they smell so much better.

    No Paul I had never heard of a Meyer lemon. I've just always used italian cp. It's good to learn, though.

    I'm sorry I guess I didn't convey the "just kidding" part well enough with my little wink emoti... No rush Paul!

    A bit off topic, but what's the thing with Sinesal and Anjeruk? I have a sample of Borobudur,
    and was wondering about these two..

    After reading about the Borbudor, I got a sample of the Sinensal. It's very strong and very expensive.

    Don't know about the Anjeruk.

    Despite the cost, sinensal is one of my absolute favorites. It's a nice fruity sweet orange and relatively long lasting. At 40 ppm in the finished product,, cost in use isn't that bad.

    Sinensal for Orange, and Neutkatone for Grapefruit. Both very expensive, but a tiny amount works miracles.

    In Borobudur I think it smells like some kind of weird orange-soda-drink.. I can't really isolate it,
    but I guess that's the smell? I was kind of surprised at first that the orange lasted that long.. but
    then I saw its low volatility..

    I received my Meyer lemon from PSH and it really is nice. Much better than some of the other lemons I have. Now I need to figure out how to extend it to last a bit longer.

    I placed my order with Christine and fingers crossed it has a profile close to fresh. I was about to give up on finding it and figured I would have to press those peels myself.

    A long time ago I worked for an organic fruit and produce distributorship in Southern California where we sold many tons of Meyer Lemons every year. I never had any idea that they were a cross between lemon and mandarin orange (per the PSH website). I just thought of them as any other sour lemon. Took me 35 years to find this out. Guess I'm a slow learner. I look forward to checking out the oil from PSH.

    I have some Mandarin CP oil, and Mandarin Petigrain SD EO, so I'm curious to compare the Meyer to these.

    If anyone has tried the Meyer Lemon Oil from our store, I would greatly appreciate if you could leave a review here: http://perfumersupplyhouse.com/product/meyer-lemon-oil/
    This might help others decide whether or not to buy it.
    Thanks,
