I think I’ve sent the link to everyone on the 34 ml blog offer list, but I’ve not heard back from a few people yet. If you’ve not received the link email yet, check your spam folder and let me know if you need me to send out another email with the link. I’d like to finish these special orders. No rush, but I want to be sure I take care of everyone.
Some people have asked about the new scent and about the tweak to Lieu de Reves. The new scent is inspired by the older classics. It will have some chypre influence but won’t be as mossy as some vintage chypres nor will it be the “new chypre” with clean patch or clean synth moss notes. It has some natural moss and lots of sandalwood in the base, plus some tonka, patch, and amber. The heart has rose, jasmine sambac absolute, light peach, and soft spices. I’m also using a little bit of a new tobacco absolute that is less green and leafy than my original one; it has some soft fruity notes and some wonderful musky animalic tones that add a lot to the base. I’m about ready to send out a few testers and will need input on a name. 🙂
The motivation for the tweak to Reves is to get it ready to join the Boutique group. I may keep the original in the Exclusives and rename it something with “dream” in the name, but we’ll see. The tweak is more complex with more orris and rose, less musk, a hint of cocoa, a little incense, and some new oakwood absolute. I’ll need feedback before deciding what to do.
Sure feels like fall.
