    I got some of that nutty Acetyl Pyrazine stuff from Perfumers Apprentice about a month ago... I put a little in a 1 ml bottle for mixing purposes... Today, I went to use the bottle and it was empty, so I went to refill with the original bottle that PA sent me... When I opened the bottle I noticed something strange... It no longer had that nutty smell to it,instead it smelled more like alcohol. :-(

    Anyone else experience this?

    TIA

    I just moved some peppermint from TPA to a smaller bottle and I noticed it smelled like mint mouth wash. Nothing like the original peppermint that it used to smell like. I know it's not the same flavor but I noticed this two days ago but thought it was because it was over 1 year old.

    I've experienced this with all but a FEW of TPA's flavors. You might ask linda what to do to remedy it. It's my suspicion that there is an alcohol base that absorbs all the flavoring and leaves the alcohol behind. Maybe try adding some PG or VG to it and see if it comes back. it's been disappointing to me when this happens (especially a large bottle!) because i love lindas flavors. I just can't rely on them is the problem.

    I have a bottle of AP from TPA that's over 6 months old and it stills smells as fresh as when I bought it. Maybe you got a bad batch. Contact Linda and tell her about it. She's a great lady to work with you on problems.

    Well, I sent her an email explaining what happened. She said that she is sending me a replacement, but not in the 10% which I got. She said there are issues with it because pg will only hold 5%, so she has to use ethyl alcohol to hold 10%... Apparently the flavor is evaporating I guess...

    She responded extremely fast to my complaint and stands behind her product. I highly recommend TPA!!!

    I don't get nutty smell, either. When I open the bottle my work area smells like corn chips for quite some time.
