Reviews of Fig Tree perfume and shea cream were just posted on The Non-Blonde and Perfume Pharmer. Thanks Gaia and Monica!
I spent over half the day going to Best Buy to replace my failed internet connection — my mifi device refused to start when I woke up this morning I was back online by noon, but fell a bit behind today and am still catching up.
Most testers have been very enthusiastic about the latest mod of the vintage-inspired scent. It has a stronger floral character with an added mimosa note. When I work on formulas, I usually start by making very small batches using ingredients diluted in alcohol. Once the formula is close to done, I switch to larger batches using full-strength ingredients (though I still use dilutions for the strongest items, like aldehydes). I always have to spend a bit of time on that conversion. Once it is done, I can scale the formula to any batch size and it’ll come out the same. I’m busy working on the formula conversion and final stages on this vintage-inspired scent. I also have a men’s scent in the works.
