Checking in again…

It’s been a really busy week.  Ambre Noir is on the site now and should be great for fall.  I’ll keep working on Gardenia Musk and Lieu de Reves as I can.  I tried some interesting new ingredients and that’s always exciting.   Received shipment of a kilo yesterday that had leaked some, but it only lost about 30 grams, luckily.

My high speed internet connection is not working and I’ve spent a frustrating day troubleshooting after talking with the ISP tech help.  No progress yet so I’m stuck on dial-up for now.  We are in the country just out of range for DSL and cable, which leaves me with only a couple choices for high speed.   I hope to get this resolved next week, but meantime I am on slow dial-up that times out a lot.

Tried a sample of Annick Goutal Neroli today and found it to be lovely and fresh.  It’s not very long-lasting but just enough to make it worthwhile (maybe 4 hours or so, but I need to test a few times to see).  Very pretty and helped perk up my mood, which has been a bit low today over these internet issues.

  1. Ooh, glad you liked the AG Neroli! It is nice and refreshing and I can see where it might improve mood as well 🙂 I feel for you on the internet problems, anytime my internet connection isn’t working, I get kind of a sick feeling in my stomach. Not too long back, my own wireless modem locked me out! It suddenly acquired a level of security that I didn’t set up!!?!! But I fixed it, I unplugged it and replaced it with a new model that I set up every form of security I could. Now it knows better! LOL!

  2. Ughh, that’s what I get for trying to string together coherent thoughts at 0700 (regardless of the time on the post!). It was my network that locked me out and I unplugged the router and replaced it. There, that makes more sense 🙂

  3. Thanks for the commiseration! Internet problems are so frustrating. They think it is a bad cable but can’t send anyone out until next week sometime. It’s so hard to get anything done on dial-up.

    The AG Neroli was a nice treat yesterday afternoon. JM Orange Blossom has never been a favorite of mine; the musk dominates the floral notes for me in that one. I like the SL, but it’s heavy, sweet, and spicy. I’d love a few more summery neroli/OB options, and the AG seems to be just that! Will try it again. 🙂
