Run like hell

I finally found my text-notes for my infamous mix...

Maybe I should call it "Dennis Anthony: Run like hell" or something...

Btw, this is the last time I will refer to my mixes in "drops", since different oils have way different dropsizes so this is not particular exact.

I will be out travelling this week - to the town Utrecht in Holland of all places! - but after that I will order some measuring cups to be able to make it all more exact.

I will order a batch of new test-tubes too, since it was way to much work cleaning them out properly...and the oil isnt that good to the drain either...

Having said that here is "Run like hell" (as inferred by the name, you should probably not test this mix out)

Everything is in drops for now:

15 Benzoine
15 Bergapten-free Bergamott
15 Sandalwood
6 Patchouli
3 Jasmin
3 Ylang-Ylang
3 Cedar (3 drops of Cedar ruined the whole mix! Damn you Cedar, damn you!)
3 Olibanum

I would guess (and I will try that later) that if you take away the Cedar, the mix will be quite good...

I have come to the conclusion that I really like Benzoine and Sandalwood...maybe I should do this supermix with these as the only notes?

Person 1: "What was that?? I smelled Vanilla and Sandalwood? And ONLY Vanilla and Sandalwood? WTH??"
Person 2: "Dont mind that, it´s only Dennis testing his supermix"

Well, there went the top-heart-base notes idea right out the window, didnt it?

The fun part with this is that I dont pretend to be a professional nose (these guys probably havent trained Martial Arts and screwed up their nose anyway and I probably have a greater hairstyle too!) and I dont really care about how traditional scents should be composed (not everytime anyway!), so if I do a mix that I like and it is not top-heart.base, well, screw that!

That´s all for now.
If more comes to my mind, I´ll call you at home.

Time flies

What can I say?
I havent been able to write for a while now as it has been quite turbulent in my life.

I was in the US (as you can see from my other postings) and as soon as I got home we started to move house:

We are finally installed at the new place, which feels good (we went from 98 m2 to 134 m2)
One of the better part of moving house btw is that my nose feels better. I think there must have been something in the air or air circulation at the old place that fucked up my nose.

Moving together with a quite turbulent time at the office (where upper management was replaced) and me travelling like crazy doing presentations all over Scandinavia made this blog and my perfume blending not my highest priorities.

Things are calming down now - thank God - so I will probably start updating this blog and blending mixes again.

So now you know that I am still alive and will be back quite soon with more mixes and stuff.

Until then....
