On Feb. 1st, I posted a teaser titled “Perfumer, you don’t know what you’re missing until you get it” and said that a white paper on a technique to improve and protect your tinctures and perfumes would be released shortly. Then the editor who was polishing up the paper became ill. I thought she’d be OK in a week or two, since I’m an optimist, but reality set in and after speaking with her on Friday, I realized she’ll be out of commission for some time. I received several requests about the paper this past week, here on the blog, on the Yahoo groups, on Facebook, and I know anticipation is high.
So, this week, as soon as I get a chance to go over her notes, I’ll polish up the paper as best I can. I’m going to call it version 1.0, and it will have all the basic information and directions for the process we’ll be sharing with the perfume community. Version 2.0, which will wait for her recovery, will have more background information, more details of specific aromatics and whatever she, in her incredible editing wisdom, includes. We’ll publish the paper this week, and it’ll be available for download from both the Natural Perfumers Guild website and the Natural Perfumery Institute website.
In the meantime today, as usual, I’ll be here to answer your perfumery questions until 10 PM ET USA.
