wanted: le nez du cafe

Postby ellenstevens on Fri Mar 04, 2011 6:52 am

I am looking for a used nez du cafe kit that still has all the vials, still in good condition. PM me if you have an extra that you'd like to sell to me.

Ellen,

I wouldn't recommend a used Le Nez kit, unless you just want it for fun or something; Le Nez kits are notoriously finicky, and lose their 'strength.' For instance, Q-Grader instructors are replacing Le Nez kits every 2 years or so because they're less useful over time.

So unless someone has one that they just got recently and realized they don't need, the idea of a "used Le Nez du Cafe" kit is a little like buying "old coffee beans." Might be good for gluing to construction paper for folk art project, but not really much else.

Just trying to be helpful! :D

Nick,
Thanks for the good advice. I suspected as much. Considering the cost of the kit, I thought I would try anyway, and who knows, I might get lucky with a "late model" kit that someone doesn't need. 8)

I'm not waiting too long, tho, cause I really want to clarify some of the aromas I am smelling, as well as put an actual scent to some of the crazy-sounding aromas on the flavor/aroma wheel...cedar...what are you REALLY?
