Library Pieces

All natural botanical perfumers worth their salt should have, or start, a scent 'library'; a closet or drawer or shelf specifically for oddities and antiques, elements with huge 'no-no' factors like civet or musk deer pod, or elements of such rarity that to use them would be beyond foolishness.

Antique rose oils, 65-year-old sandalwood oil, 100-year-old vetyver and cedar oils. Remnants from a bottle of 50-year-old ambergris tincture.

If you find them, scoop them up.
