Oh ! Never mind the mods. there’s precious little point in them shuffling material across to other thread if nobody;plans on posting there anymore,. They don’t have that much powah. I’m just wondering where shall i post my next little contibution. Go over there, as usual? , or bow to the new convention and join the happy throng over here?
Tasting notes threads never end up being what they started out as. Ive been thinking of a way around all the side talk. Perhaps making tasting notes thread only open to notes and all the side talk in another.
There isnt a single notes thread that is easy to use.
OMG, what a derailed thread
I think this could easily be split up in “Recommendations”, “What did I order today?”, “Recipes” and mostly other blah blah that belongs in the Pub. Damn it takes a long time to get the true recommendations out of this thread
Ah, yes. Well, as per the norm for me, I have allowed my limbs to go against my better judgement. The butterschoch variant I added Acacia Honey to (confession, I added three drops) went into my tank a few minutes ago.
AH has changed the profile quite a bit, and in a great way. Aside from the darker butterscotch and caramel notes, the floral honey pop from AH has actually given it the little burst of bright sweetness I’ve been looking for. I did not expect this. It’s actually really good and I will have to work hard not to dip back into it for a month. So, for an early, early verdict I am very glad I got AH. It is used very sparingly- three drops in a 100ml mix, but it is definitely present and is playing very well with the other kids.
true, but i suspect that you mis-grasped my point?
i’d really like to see more (or even all) of the actual tasting notes- together with any associated side talk- going into this thead:
just cos it’s easier for my little brain to find the tasting notes in there,rather than at the bottom of the “recommendations” thread.
i had an idea that a timely reminder of that thread’s existence might just, with a bit of luck, trigger a little exodus of tasters from here into the tasting thread. Not so , alas! it’s just prompted a huge argument about the merits and demerits of the side-talk, which has now taken over at least two threads, along with myself being put down as a side-talk hater (which I’m not!)
…though i’ve gotta admit that i’m finding the meta- side-talk discussion kinda tedious i think some other subjects do deserve a bit of discussion, now and then
Does anyone have a fairly new bottle of Pineapple MF they could sniff for me? Mine is from ECX and still in glass so it’s old stock, I’m sure. I’m getting straight nail polish chemical smell from it, even at 1 drop in 15ml, 2 days steeped.
I know. I’m planning on 2 months if I don’t get a response from someone who has it fresh. I just wanted to smell it at a 1drop dilution so I didn’t have the pure concentration as my only source. Those can smell all crazy even when fresh.
I may have foobarred my mango testers. I did 1,2,3,4 drops per 14 ml and a 1% test. I really could not discern hardly any mango in any of them although the signature body of the MF fruits was there on all tests. The problem was that they fell through the cracks and I did not sample them till almost the 4 month mark so I don’t know if I am blind to it or a possible fading issue. I would love to know your experience.
