The iPigeon last minute (or beyond) 2022 cool picks for holiday cheer. A web history best of.

Sometimes, I figure out slightly novel or ingenious little twists, when getting back to Google Web Searching. Their Top 100 Shopping Trends of 2022 splash page, which just reached me, the other day, saw some familiar favorites, and it inspired a mock shopping trip dive, which, ostensibly, I’d had had to have made a multi-part return to the topic, so I could report back to readers on some of my findings, of truly neat-o, new, or innovative products that seemed to have surfaced, in the retail online consumer market, over this past year, 2022, within my ad marketing serve, and which I hope finds you discovering inspiring and fruitful Google Shopping, etc., online marketplace searches.

As many of you know, I’m a long-time connoisseur of fine fragrance, both as a consumer and as a semi- or sometimes-moderate[novice] (developing) manufacturer, or perfume artist, of which I’d had some recent likable compositions and single ingredients made. I’d lost my perfume ingredients collection due to some circumstances, over the past year, yet I had a longing to return to this theme of a nice tropical fragrance, such as one that I’d made, called Southern Critter Skeet Skeet, which found itself multivariate uses, in practical terms, beyond personal fragrancing - the aroma seemed to stir the winds of an environment, at times, and it was a good cover, when put to use, in small environmental settings, where the air quality had taken a downturn, such as a dead animal’s smell, perhaps. 

I started out a new search - completely new, for me: island perfume ingredients. There was some talk about island nation people going on, earlier in the day, a day or two ago, and my thoughts turned to island fragrances, of the imagined richness and diversity potential of a fertile island’s vegetation, perhaps special care and cultivations of - particularly unique and perhaps fragrant aroma compounds, oils, or fruits, for example. The search - a limited and quick browse, through the various several pages that came up, on Google Shopping, found some quick and interesting links, such as fragrance ingredients suppliers, such as ChemWorld.com, new-to-me fragrance ingredients, along tropical-themes, such as Veratraldehyde, to investigate, and perhaps follow up on, at some point; a new index, of a highly astute and well-wrought out thorough-ability, of both common names of plants, as well as their associated constituent chemical and essential oil scientific names and chemistry signifiers, oxytocin spray, and, my personal fave - throwback classic island fragrances by Monoi | Tiki.

Remember these fragrances? I think that they’re pretty good, if I recall.

Another quick suggestion, fragrance-wise, is FragranceNet.com’s deal on Dior Homme - a fragrance suite which can be a little bit confusing - but don’t get confused - there’s vastly different “Dior Homme” fragrance varieties out there, several, perhaps, and I tried smelling the white label one - I definitely didn’t much like it. This is the one I like - the grey background with the black rectangle one. If you’re looking for a cheap holiday gift, 10 mL of Dior Homme, in a mini form, should suit somebody’s fragrance tastes just fine, perhaps for weeks, or a month, or two, perhaps, and it comes with shower gel. It’s a nice deal, at $20.99 (40% off, currently), and it smells great - reminiscent of a fine department store’s fragrancing, for example.

One deal that I commonly encounter, regardless of the time of year, although I had just come across it, right now, is the sidewalk vegetables and fruits vendors of Chinatown, neighboring downtown Los Angeles. They give out generous amounts of fruits and vegetables for characteristically one dollar, in most cases I’ve encountered.

Step Two: Curing and Milling the Parfumerie Products for Purity.

 I've spent some time getting to know the scents and fragrances that I've purchased, and, like previous fragrance purchases, of the bulk sort, that I've acquired, in the past, there was a hint of prematurity in the manufacturing process, as the products were delivered to me, as far as solvent smells. There was some notion of incense smoke in some of them, and others just seemed to be a bit off-character, of what I might have expected to receive, as fragrance ingredient components. 

A messy hands-on approach to home-curing and milling fresh-from-manufacture chemical fragrance ingredients.


Milling and curing the containers is an ad hoc theory of mine, somewhat based upon the notion of centrifugal agitators, that phlebotomists use, in preparing blood samples for analysis. In the past, I would carry all of my valuables and purchases with me, due to paranoia about my housemates stalking me.

Product Review: Benzyl Benzoate - Consolidated Chemical Supply (CCS, Ltd.)

 Ah, the world of chemistry, and materials sciences. 



As common laypersons that we mostly are, by and large, we have to take heed to the fact that this is an area of knowledge and understanding that "exists," yet it passes through our lives rather transparently, as much of our lives which pertain to chemistry-based contexts are obscured from the significant potentiality of the chemicals that affect us, given brand and label marketing, as well as that many chemicals are typically the precedence and claim-stake of the medical and pharmaceutical industries.

Consolidated Chemical Supplies is a materials-science and research purposes e-commerce producer of high quality and completely pure (unless noted, in the labeling) chemical products, with a modest and appreciable product line of simple to intermediary (semi-pro, or prosumer) chemicals. I'm at a loss for eloquence, on the subject; for that matter, it's a natural and physical sciences topic. I majored in humanities, and I'm quite slow at comprehending and attaining on the strict math and sciences subjects. 

That being said, the U.S. government, and federally recognized associations, institutes, and organizations are dedicated to the dissemination of information on nearly any conceivable chemical composition, of interest and of industry, and they chart and list out all of the colloquialisms associated with chemicals that are sold in the manufacturing industry. In my case, I substituted Benzyl Alcohol for Benzyl Benzoate, in an aspiration project of mine, to produce a finery boutique natural products hair pomade, as fine as Murray's Pomade, which is by far superior to standard gel and soppy pomades that typically cost a lot more.


I simply figured, "it's a Benzyl-something," and I fancied that a benzoate is similarly solvent (as alcohol), of some capacity about it, and from there, I was sold on the first compelling Benzyl product that I could discover, for online retail sale, from a chemical resource materials supplier, which happened to be CCS, on Walmart.com.

I've only nibbled at the rich discovery endeavor that producing a suitably similar product, at small scale, yet with extravagant means in precluding the budgetary considerations of my product that I intend to manufacture: my primogeniture cosmetic product; even medi-aesthetics boutique couturier, for hair.

Product Review - CCR Specialty Chemicals, LLC - 6-Methyl Coumarin | Benzyl Benzoate - via WalMart.com.

Walmart.com. Who would have thought that the retail giant would emerge as a men's hair product and cosmetics source material chemicals supplier, at an appetizing scale, and with unexpectedly obscure reaches in to esoteric substances?

On one hand, news of Wal-Mart becoming a broad-economy merchant host of eCommerce had reached me, of some formerly dismissed news article publication sorts; or, perhaps, that I'd come across them in a web search while looking up product prices on Google.

Latest post.

My favorite take, from out of Amazon Prime Day 2024.

This one just feels serendipitous to me, yet I can't share on other social media channels, from this hotspot. People have got to try thi...
