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 : )
Joseph Colbourne has this to say “A transparent proprietary blend of light viscosity, melissa liquid 100% demonstrates the characteristic sweet, green, fresh aroma of melissa (also known as lemon balm). Similar to lemongrass without the pungency, lemon without the tartness, and litsea cubeba without the cloying sweetness, melissa liquid 100% exhibits an herbaceous character resembling sweet basil or even fresh mint leaves.
As it dries down several hours in, these qualities become more apparent as the lemony top recedes. As a middle note with good tenacity, this blend may be particularly useful in extending the citrus and herbal top notes in natural perfumes. Additionally, it can build dimension in rose and other florals, or provide a lift for elemi or more terpenic frankincenses.”
