5th June: Lots to discuss today. First by Friday of this week I am releasing – with introductory pricing - Costus Root E.O Signature Gold, Persian Royal Rose Otto, Wild Borneo Oud Kinabalu E.O and 4 year aged Buddha Wood E.O. If I get time I will also get the Tea-plantation Kenyan Rose scented Geranium E.O released as well. Also, I am waiting on delivery now of Cis 3 Hexanol N.I and as soon as it arrives it will be put back into stock.
Another priority job now is addressing the new SDS process and from Wednesday, I am going to spend an hour every evening on this task. Thanks btw to those who have volunteered to help with the testing phase. I will be in touch with you all nearer the time. Again, once set up properly, SDS will only be available to those who have purchased the product. Exceptions again will be wild oud, extraits, tinctures and resins. America is now switched on until 14th June at 3pm Italy time for this month. If the workload situation gets out of hand, all other countries will be put on pause. Written as the USA is a unique client – accounting for nearly half of our workload. Normally not an issue but due to circumstances I am without Eleonora and admit that I struggle running Hermitage alone. Lead-time currently stands at 8-10 working days. Thank you, Adam : )
Here you will find our collection of rose oils, rose CO2 extracts, rose absolutes and rose concrete. These are precious materials indeed – rose extracts are famous for requiring many kilograms of flower heads to produce grams of extract and yet their smell is often surprising the first time you smell them. Rather than the light, soft rose petal scent that you would expect from rose, in reality these are deeper, earthier, honeyed and intense. Remember these are the pure, concentrated, aromatic components from the very soul of the rose and need to be diluted and blended in use. Owning and working with the finest rose materials is mandatory for the serious natural perfumer. Note that true rose otto begins to solidify below 22 degrees Celcius (71F). Gently warming the bottle in your palm should be enough to mobilise it again.
Please note: Despite their quality, all of our products are of a highly concentrated nature and are therefore to be strictly intended for perfumery and aromatherapy use only. Hermitage Oils strongly discourages internal consumption of the products, which are not intended to be used as foods in any capacity. All photos and images on this website have the sole purpose to evoke the raw materials from which the products offered are obtained, their place of origin or their scent.
