22nd March at 10.05am: Hello World, Adam here with a quick progress report! First thank you of course to the many who have placed orders, most appreciated. As I type should you place an order, please note the lead time is 5 working days before we will be able to assemble your order. This Sunday by 3pm Italy time I am going to release my Onycha Shells co-distilled in 33 year AGED Mysore sandalwood for sale. 10ml price is 350 Euros due to age of the sandalwood used. Also, if you are shopping around for Jasmine Absolute, Violet Absolute or Rose Absolute Turkish, my current batches are exceptionally beautiful – zero gassy aspects in the top, incredible body, excellent development and just so blissfully perfect from start to finish. For those musing on larger weights I can offer my Turkish Rose Absolute (batch TRSGAA01) at 2450 Euros plus vat per kilo and can offer this for 2300 Euros per kilo on a 3 kilo buy – 6900 euros plus vat. I will write again on Sunday afternoon. Thanks, Adam : )

Mark Evans has this to say “With this anisyl alcohol natural isolate, the natural perfumer finally has access to a heliotrope material without having to resort to tonka and vanilla or search for a rare and expensive heliotrope flower absolute.
Anisyl alcohol natural isolate is delightfully sweet and softly powdery with pink floral, heliotrope and lilac qualities. It’s intoxicating to smell and the impression that comes to mind is one of baby powder and lilacs with hints of cherry and a good dose of balsams and vanilla. There’s also a creamy lactonic vibe in there along with a little roasted coconut. With so much going on in its olfactory profile, this natural isolate has excellent blending properties for use in sweet floral, powdery or ambery creations.
There are a couple of things to be aware of, though. Firstly, anisyl alcohol turns solid on cold days, but easily melts again with a little warmth. It’s also perfectly clear and colourless with none of the problems with discoloration that vanilla has. Secondly, be aware that IFRA has limited the use of this material in spray perfumes to 0.68% of the finished product.

I can dig that it is made from fennel. Its unmistakable sweetness is all over, but in a quiet manner. If fennel would not be mentioned, then I would definitely say that it very much reminds of lilac, though. It is present in this soft, powdery, sweet, creamy, floral nectar. Neat from the bottle it is very subtle. On the strip I sense sweet birch/wintergreen notes as well. In blends it works really interestingly, adds so much body. can not really describe. A very cost effective way to get hands on some lilac to smell during cold flower-free winter months.

I wish I could use more of this, its wonderful stuff, it’s delicate enough to remain almost hidden within a blend yet it adds complexity, body and a softness that doesn’t scream anise in any way.

this is a very beautiful note to me as I’m a big fan of purple spring flowers. Fresh, bright, unique floral aspect.

This arrived in the mail on a cold night and it was solid in the bottle. I held it in my hands for awhile, rolling it, and it eventually liquified. When I smelled it, I got a very beautiful cherry like note. Very sweet and creamy, also soft in character even though this appears potent. Awesome scent, thank you!
