Monday morning. I arrive at work, ready to tackle several new projects due this week. On the way, I had been thinking about how I want to finish that pomegranate fragrance I’ve been working on for one of our West Coast candle customers, reassuring myself vehemently that it’s not a big rush, even though I’ve had it on my desk for a few days, and now I finally have a chance to work on it, after having been occupied all of last week creating several new baby wipe fragrances for a prominent client.

Checking email. Here’s one from our purchasing agent: 

"Help! Production is making an old formula, and needs a replacement for mousse de chene yuogo absolute. We last purchased it from Camilli, Albert & Laloue in 1989.”
