Perfume Things

I've been away from the computer quite a lot these past few days, putting the final packaging touches on the first eau de parfum for TSD and diluting materials for trial studies.

The class I'm teaching is a week from now and I've got the primer for the class being worked on by a designer to make it more visually appealing since the content is very concise and dry. It's a primer. I'm just freaking out a little bit about the printing deadline . . .

All the materials necessary to complete the second eau de parfum for TSD are lined up and ready for blending -- I always get a little weird at this stage of the game. I need complete quiet in the house because once I start, I won't stop until the product is done, done and done. Breaking my concentration can be hazardous to the intruder's health. So I time my blending excursions for when the kids have made plans to go to a movie or hang out with friends ~ far, far away. School begins next week (yay!) so those quiet times will be more frequent. More formulating?

Revisiting Violette

I'm in the middle (or beginning, really) of a detox, so forgive me if these posts become -- well -- strange.

Worked a few hours yesterday on the mock up of violet. I'm trying to work out something resembling an eau de toilette with it. The extrait composition sticks for well over 24 hours, which is amazing to me considering the limited materials and dilutions being used, but not so amazing when considering that two of those materials are oakmoss and sandalwood. The drydown is only slightly woody, and very, very sweet/floral. I had my daughter sniff'a bit off my wrist. Her eyes lit up and she yelled, "Chowards!" That'd be Chowards' violet 'flavored' mints. I tested this revelation and found that the mock violet extrait bears a striking resemblance olfactorily to Chowards, except the mints are just a titch more fruity.

I might put a couple of drams of the finished EdT on the apothecary site. But that won't be for a few weeks yet.

Done, Done and Done!

Finally stopped my procrastinating and bottled up one of the limited edition perfumes to be presented on The Scented Djinn's new website in October. Still working on putting the other limited edition together, then blending away for the next project.

The class I'm teaching this year is almost upon me and finally -- finally! -- I think I've done all the revising and editing I can on the primer for the class. As beginning primer's go, it's not half bad. Now I have to get it printed up.

Received a batch of lavenders last week from Marcia over at Samara Botane -- lovely! The white lavender concrete speaks to me. I see it blending beautifully with spruce and patchouli absolutes, and a teeny little bit of violet leaf --and a tinier little bit of blue lotus-- to top it off. Marcia's tobacco concrete is probably one of the nicest tobaccos I've ever smelled ~ sweet, dry and earthy with a slight green undertone.
