    Thank God that there's an ever-increasing number of perfumers here in the U.S. and Japan.

    This is so damn stupid, like the ban on regular light bulbs.

    Serge Lutens lives in Morocco according to Wiki. Does any know whether his company is based in Morocco? That way he could use the listed ingredients.

    Nope - his company is part of Shiseido (Japan) but they're more or less centered around the Palais Royale flagship in Paris. Even then, major producers are going to tend to be IFRA complaint regardless of locale - such as Lauder.

    The other side of this is that the restricted materials are going to go away due to the lack of demand. If Chanel has been buying tons of oakmoss absolute, and now they're not - supplies will drop due to the lack of a market.

    Now, this part is Conspiracy - but the IFRA is said to have the Big 7 as members (Givaudan, Symrise, IFF, et al) who make the synthetics. Supposedly this is a power grab by the Big 7 to take market share from the natural growers. I tend to believe it, considering the proliferation of captive aroma molecules they're making now. Then again I'm cynical about these things.

    Right, Shiseido, I figure that they could trick a little by setting up subsidiary companies, but that probably gets too complex.

    Anybody have a partial or decant of Rose 31 or Royal Scottish Lavender they'd like to part with? Sorry if this is the wrong thread - looks like the split thread is kaput.

    Took me a while to decide today, but I went with Secrete Datura.

    Daturas are all over San Francisco and homeless people often go into the emergency room because they make a tea out of the flowers to hallucinate, however there's a fine line between "therapeutic dose" and "toxic dose" . . .

    They smell wonderful, though!

    Today: Artemisia Ondine.

    I knew daturas were hallucinogenic, but I didn't know people actually made tea out of them. There's three datura scents I wear fairly regularly: Secrete Datura, Datura Blanche, and Datura Noir (although I haven't worn Noir in a while). I'm a big fan of them all, even though they're very different.

    For a long long time people have used it to stimulate senses actually. Better not do it though when you don't have a clue, it can get very dangerous. It's used as alternative treatment nowadays for some diseases with low dosage too, IIRC.
