    Re: Fishy smell from atomizers?

    This thread has been so validating and eye opening as I’ve certainly noticed this before and it totally turned me off of an affected scent I once sampled (now I learned undeservedly!). The strange...

    Re: Interesting Two-Component Accords

    Lately it's been Mahoganate + anything. I'm amazed at how many directions that material can take you.
    Also Ethyl Maltol + <XYZ> is a maybe a cheap affect, but it really does fascinating things as a...

    Re: Masculine violet accord

    Through woodiness you can maybe achieve what you want; some of the more woody ionone materials that come to mind are Boisiris and Dihydro Ionone Beta. There are other methyl-type ionones that are...

    Re: What does Cypress smell like?

    Old thread, but adding to the pile:

    There are different types of cypresses, and also the different ratio of branch:leaves when distilling can make a huge difference. Two that I have, French...

    Re: Most nauseating aroma chemicals?

    For me, strangely, Bois de landes makes me nauseaous. Something about that extremely dry yet sweet woody quality gets me. However, it might also be because the night I first evaluated it, I got...
  6. Re: A message from Arcadi Boix Camps and new book

    Thanks for sharing that link! I'm a bit confused though—is the entire contents of Arcadi's Perfumery—Techniques in Evolution (2nd Edition) present in that PDF? Or is there only a partial overlap? ...

    Re: Orris / Iris Root

    From what I've sampled (one resinoid w/22% irones, and two butters, with 8% and 16% irones), the resinoid was much more rich and deep, more gourmand, and had a lot more body and character. It had an...
  8. Re: Discrepancy Determining IFRA-compliant concentration of EO by its constituents and by EO itself

    I'm glad to hear that you find my rationale clear here! I understand that the IFRA is in the business of safety (or something), and so being overly cautious is in their best interest. As I work...
  9. Re: Discrepancy Determining IFRA-compliant concentration of EO by its constituents and by EO itself

    I was considering this, as I could imagine that the chemistry that causes a molecule to induce sensitization can be affected by the presence of one or more other sensitizing agents, just like how...
  10. Re: Discrepancy Determining IFRA-compliant concentration of EO by its constituents and by EO itself

    Hmm, that may be possible. A 5x increase in the amount of say isoeugenol in one sample vs another would be surprising to me, but I'm not sure how much this sort of thing varies between extractions. ...
  11. Discrepancy Determining IFRA-compliant concentration of EO by its constituents and by EO itself

    Hi Basenotes!

    I have some questions regarding the IFRA restriction of Ylang Ylang oil and how one can determine the IFRA-compliant concentration of an EO based on its restricted constituents.
