Thank you I’ll keep that in mind for the next time, I will ask Christine for the Phenyl Ethyl Tiglate when ordering next time.
For now I ommit it in this formula.

I am trying to order Phenyl acetic acid, only 5g from Sigma.. fingers crossed.

I am afraid this will happen also for the Phenyl acetic acid… but let’s wait and see…

This base is incredible, the only ingredient I couldn’t get is the Rhodinyl Formate. A very powerful base this is, a small dap on my wrist left a scent trail that turned heads!!
