The Post Office and FedEx are closed today, so I’m packing orders to ship tomorrow. I’m making some testers too.
I’m trying Cameo again and really like it but worry whether this version will be too soft for some people; the previous version was stronger, so I’m thinking about a compromise between the two. Edited to add: I tried increasing the concentration and reducing one item that seemed to be damping the scent down a bit, and those two changes helped the oomph factor a lot. I’ll test it more, but the formula may be fine as is now.
I have a yummy new beeswax absolute to try in Gardenia Musk. It has a smooth, buttery quality that could be very nice in the gardenia if I make adjustments to reduce sweetness from other things. I may try it in Ambre Noir too, but doubt I can get away with it there.
Tried the musk-reduced tabac tweak again last night and have a version ready for testing; it should be an interesting option for those who are anosmic to the musk in the original, substituting hay absolute and oakmoss for the musk.
There was a nice review of Voile de Violette yesterday (link below)!
Hope your holiday weekend has been a good one!
