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 : )

Adam Michael has this to say “The aroma of myrrh essential oil is instantly recognisable, oozing sticky Oriental warm and sweet medicinal character with spice and rich amber qualities throughout. Stored properly myrrh will age like a fine wine, oozing aroma with even more depth and intensity along with being of a thicker viscosity.
Myrrh is full of history, documented within the biblical times, a staple in the early history of incense, a huge part of early natural medicine and as I write an essential oil that is commonly found within natural mouth wash products and also classed as a staple essential oil by the majority of professional therapists.
Produced by steam distilling the crude myrrh, ambery in colour and of a pourable viscosity. For the perfumer myrrh blends well with the majority of balsams and oleo gum resinous natural materials, pairing especially well with frankincense absolute and opoponax essential oil. A useful fixative, a must for patchouli rich Oriental accords, for building deep rich resinous amber bases, incense notes and woody accords that require a diffusive sweet ambery effect.”

It’s the gold of the east.
The multifaceted spicy notes of incense are indispensable for creating complex and sensual aromas

Instantly transportative, this Myrrh E.O. is sublime. Smooth, clean and comforting medicinal notes flow through a softly-spiced herbal amber. This is an amber microcosm of medicinal woods and bitter oakmoss, of spicy green roots brought up from cold earth; all-in-all evoking those strangely alluring scents of a Victorian sweet shop: soft peppery herbal toffee, dark woods infused with dark chocolate mints, a thin vein of metallic earthiness (like gall oak ink) and the sultry presence of smoke rising from the embers of a fading roses, whose wafts blend with a powdery licorice, nutmeg and clove and end in a creamy milky menthol swirl.
This is the stuff of healing rituals, of eastern lands and love balms, – as well as the familiar, soothing and homely twang of a very old medicine cabinet.
Perfect on its own and lingering long on my skin, this Myrrh E.O. is wonderful for adding nuance, mystery and depth to woody, amber and floral orientals, as well as being invaluable for medicinal blends. I can’t imagine finding a better myrrh.

Begins with a slightly burning smell and also slightly ambery. It has hint of summer breeze – dry and warm in a very hot climate.
It later becomes a bit medicinal on my skin. quite balsamic (but not overwhelming), and gorgeous incensy.
I do not get any woody facets at the start, but it later can be, s.t. how warm the weather is.
In the dry down, it incensy and slightly medicinal throughout. This is an excellent ingredient for any blend that needs some balsamic and incensy facets or being the headline act. It goes beautifull well with every regional oud type I have tried so far.
