      Jim, I read one of your blog posts about using L-muscone. Since this is a captive ingredient of Givaudan’s I have been unable to locate any suppliers who will ship small quantities. May I ask where you might have been able to find it?

      Thank you

      Dear James,
      I’m in contact with Michael Zhang, in China. After much back and forth, he agreed to sell me a single ml. I wanted to smell it first as he says it has little odor. But it’s very expensive and because of the shipping getting the one ml would cost $200. So I haven’t sprung thus far. His e-mail is: michael@universe-dl.com.cn.
      Good luck,
      jp
