Fabienne, the sale really is exciting news!!

Quick question. It seems like the three winners from the spring collection aren't on the list of permanents yet to add to the shopping cart. I was hoping to grab a bottle of the Seductive Jesuit (he's oh-so-seductive!!) Can I still do that if I add him as my "fifth bottle"?

Thank you!

Oh my! Will have to check my budget. I'm very tempted to get another 2 or 3 of the Summer collection and grab some of the Permanents that I keep meaning to acquire!
The timing is great, I'll probably find something(s) of which I need an FB while testing various poppets/froppets for the 30 day challenge.

Well, one of my favorite perfumes, Virginia-Humidity, is going to have to be reformulated. Drat. Here is what happened: I was mixing up another batch and didn't realize that I didn't have enough of one key ingredient to finish the batch. As I was almost done I realized I was short only 6ml of that key ingredient. I had everything together but that. So, I look up the ingredient on the vendor's website and I am sad to see that they don't sell it anymore. I call them and, yes, it has been discontinued. After a long conference with them, they persuaded me to try another ingredient which was even better in their opinion, it actually had knocked off the previous ingredient because it was such a hit in that category. I got my sample today and I must admit that it is amazing. So, I am going to finish this batch of Virginia with the new ingredient (which should have a slight influence on the batch, but I would say slight). Then next time I make it, I will use the new ingredient.

The current Virginia is now labeled Rev. 1, and the next batch will be labeled Rev. 2. I do not have any samples of Rev 1 now and won't have for weeks probably. I don't think you would know that anything changed unless I told you. I will also tell you when I do get new samples.

In the meantime, if you MUST have the old Virginia (or you will die on the spot) I have samples of it. About 7 samples would make a full 6ml for sure (these are handmade and so I err on the safe side when I say how much is in each vial). I hope that is not too confusing.

Oh, this story actually has a happy ending if the new replacement component gets higher reviews!
