I’ve had a delay on the boxes — it’ll be a couple more weeks before I can put them on my site, but the prints I’ve seen so far show that the gold foil is really beautiful. The oak leaf design is working really well in the foil and I can’t wait to get my shipment.
Meantime, I’m getting back to the new scents. I have a good start on the reformulation of Opal. One of the issues with Opal is that I want to change the blend of musks in it to use only macrocyclic musks with no polycyclic musks (the macrocyclics are biodegradable and better for the environment, so I no longer use the polycyclics when I formulate). I like the new musk blend for Opal so far. It also has sandalwood, vanilla, and tonka as before. I’m working with some soft floral aspects and deciding what to do about the little bergamot citrus note it had originally.
For those who may be visiting the SF area, Natalie on Another Perfume Blog recently posted a guide to perfume shops to visit in the city. She included photos too, which is fun.
I’ll post on the What’s New page and here on the blog when the new boxes are finally shipping, and I’ll post when I have the next mods ready on the new scents
