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 : )
Adam Michael has this to say “In my humble opinion Aleppo pine essential oil also known as Jerusalem pine is one of the most aromatically sublime pine essential oils produced. As soon as I open the bottle I’m transported back in time to Southern Italy, smelling lemons, bergamots and cedrat fruits on the trees all over again. There is lovely fresh sharpness to the opening as well, comparable to the zest of lime zest entwined with a distinct vegetative note that reminds me of freshly picked runner beans.
As the aroma develops the fresh fruit character remains but takes on a zappy quality which leads onto an intense burst of resinous pine nuances with fresh baked bread tonalities dancing in and out of detection. This is without doubt the most amazing Aleppo pine essential oil I have experienced to date and I highly recommend this material to the perfumer as in the world of pine aromatics, this is a game changer. This essential oil is produced by steam distilling the needles, is clear in colour and of a pourable viscosity.”
