  1. Have you all tried their musk-heavy scents? Musk, Pink Musk, Vanilla Musk, Black Vanilla Musk, Masculine Musk, etc. If you search for "musk" on their site, those come up at the top of the list and then it starts including FOs that have musk in the other notes (not the name). I may get that lilac @Shari mentioned too, as I missed that in the past. Also am interested in Bella's Kiss, Witches' Brew, Heavenly, and Sea Glass. Anybody want to add any to the above raves and recs?
  2. I am finally trying that Iced Tea Twist from WSP, and it's good but it's just not the rich, black tea I'm looking for. It's more light and bright, maybe like instant tea like someone said above. To add to the list above, I saw where Fillmore has an orange pekoe FO, but it seems like it's meant to be a citrus and not really a tea scent. I may have to pick from y'alls recs above. I would love to have something smells like the Earl Grey I'm drinking now. https://www.fillmorecontainer.com/orange-pekoe-tea-fragrance-oil-25.html
  3. I bet that would be great with a little sweetgrass added too! Sweetgrass smells like hay and that smidge of blackberry would compliment it wonderfully. I would be willing to try that Indigo scent too. I haven't ordered or tried anything from them yet. Do any of you know of a blackberry musk FO?
  4. I don't see pear mentioned a lot as a note in FOs, but I think it's perfect for this time of year (late summer, just starting to feel cooler at night). I would love it as a body scent and as a room scent. What do you all recommend for pear or blackberry or other fruit FOs for now? Strawberry and blueberry seem more Summer to me, but we can discuss those if they seem early-harvest-related for you. Coconut, pineapple, mango, guava are definitely Summer so not really looking for that. Pear + caramel sounds absolutely yummy....
  5. I don't suppose any of you have more to add to this discussion? They have a perfume dupe I'm eyeing (Philosophy Pure Grace).
  6. I am on this kick again, so if anybody wants to discuss the above recommendations or make some more suggestions I can research, please do. What FOs do you think smell like the most expensive soap like you'd find in 5-star hotels that only the rich & infamous can afford to visit? A perfume I was thinking of buying is described as having the best luxury soap scent ever, and I want to examine FOs first. My all-time favorite clean scent was discontinued (D'Lish Clean Sweet Layer, and I think it was Scent Works who had the FO version and we all are still lamenting their exit) so I've just go

  8. They have a dupe I want, Crabtree & Evelyn Summer Hill. They were so badly watered down and weak 12 years ago, but perhaps they've improved. Do any of you but FOs from there nowadays? Or anything else that's worth investigating there? https://www.fromnaturewithlove.com/soap/FO-s.asp
  9. I would like to minimize throwing plastics away, so can I sanitize bottles I already have and reuse? Is it simply a matter of hot soapy water and then rinsing with some alcohol for good measure, then refilling with my base lotion + FO blend? I don't see how you could thoroughly scrub out a pump tube but maybe pumping some alcohol through it is good enough? And with shower gel, does the fact that you only ever run soap / shower gel through it anyway keep it clean enough to just refill and keep going?
  10. I added some lime margarita FO to some cornstarch a while back and have been using that. I plopped a few drops onto maybe half a cup of cornstarch in a small jar, shook that up, and it's great. I suppose if you're selling you'd want a more specific recipe but for my personal use this is fine. I logged on right now to go in the craft forum and ask for suggestions for a powder box for that mixture so I'll ask here, since you brought it up. So what can you all think of for that? No glass, something cute that would look good on the bathroom vanity, maybe there's something I can DI
  11. It's been a couple weeks now and I'm very happy to report that "off" note is gone. (side comment: WSP L de Lolita Lempicka is a great vanilla sandalwood) I have a blackberry vanilla musk that has a play-doh note already in the bottle so I'm going to try it like this and see if that also is something that mellows out. If it does I would enjoy that for perfume the rest of this Summer.
  12. How is your perfume making going? When you've made a spray with alcohol, does it take a while for it to "settle" or for the ingredients to meld into their final result or something? I feel like I might be getting an "off" note from the Everclear I mentioned above, but I figured this would be an even better option than perfumer's alcohol since it won't have that extra ingredient making it undrinkable. So my next thought was maybe this will age a little and be better. I seem to be having better luck with rollerballs and they smell great from the beginning, though I have not made a rollerball
  13. There's a couple of coffees on sale at WSP this week: https://www.wholesalesuppliesplus.com/special-sales/deep-discounts/sale.aspx?FBK=&FBD=270&Sort=0 None of the lattes and cafes, just straight coffee (well, not quite; more like black coffee with cream & sugar). Anybody have these?
  14. Sweet Holiday Blend Coffee from Lone Star. https://www.lonestarcandlesupply.com/sweet-holiday-blend-coffee.html Black Vetiver Cafe (Jo Malone dupe), but we will have to let someone recommend one that is currently sold as the one I got in the past was discontinued. Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte (like B&BW). I just ordered a small bottle from WSP to try, but I would love to hear from the rest of you how that is from other vendors (like Just Scent) as they are possibly going to be less expensive. Though WSP has these 25% sales every now and then that help, but things be
  15. I read of a designer perfume with rooibos tea, orange, and cinnamon. Does that not sound lovely?
