In order to let you all know where this sits here is where we are. The short story is that my additional essential oils and extracts have inexplicably been delayed. These are the new ones I have ordered in to address some of the feedback we received, namely that it would be great if the scent were stronger and lasted longer.

We anticipate heading back to the lab soon and no, this is not an actual picture of me. I look MUCH more sinister.Biggrin:

Time wise we should have a heavily revised formula to ship to volunteers, but not for a few weeks. We will need the next ten days or so to first receive the new ingredients and then start the tinkering, followed by the filtering. So to tinker takes time. Once we have done as best as we can then I will post a thread announcing it is available. The samples will be shipped and then we await the feedback from our loyal volunteers which takes another two weeks.

We only proceed with a formula that is found to be favorable to a majority of testers. This newly revised formula will be a straight up Lime scent, no bay rum in the background. We also want it stronger upon application and longer lasting. Frankly, it is contrary to any citrus scent to be strong and last long. We are attempting to make it do something it does not want to do, but if I can pull it off then all of our customers will have another Captain's Choice scent that will please the ladies: Aaaaa

I'm totally digging the Lime sample I got from you Scott. I used it today with a new Lime soap I picked up, from Pyrate Cove, and it was truly a great experience.

Just want you to know I greatly appreciate the work you are putting into this new scent, and sharing in that process with us. I look forward to trying this new sample of yours when you release it.

Thanks for keeping us posted. Personally, I'm pretty neutral on the bay rum issue - I liked the original sample with it in the background, but like the idea of a clean lime, too.

I like the sound of a "clean" lime aftershave. I really liked the lime sample I had, but sometimes it felt like it was a bay rum with a lime placed on top.
