Formulating is a drag sometimes. Nothing bites more than having a perfectly lovely perfume mapped out on paper turn to sewage during the real world blending. Some scent elements simply do not play well together -- like my kids.
And then . . . sometimes formulating is exhilarating as hell. When you know, step by step, drop by drop, this one -- this lovely osmanthusy, figgy, oudhy concoction is IT.
I love sultry.
