During the past decade there have been many changes in the perfumery industry which are not so much due to the discovery and application of new raw materials, but rather to the astronomic increase in the cost of labour required to produce them. This is reflected more particularly in the flower industry, where the cost of collecting the blossoms delivered to the factories has gone up year after year, so much so that most flowers with the possible exception of Mimosa, have reached a cost price which has compelled the perfumer to either reduce his purchases of absolutes and concretes, or alternatively to substitute them from a cheaper source, or even to discontinue their use. This development raises an important and almost insoluble problem for the perfumer, who is faced with the necessity of trying to keep unchanged the bouquet of his fragrances, and moreover, to ensure no loss of strength and diffusiveness. Of course, this problem applies more especially to the adjustment of formulae for established perfumes, because in every new creation the present high cost of raw materials receives imperative con- sideration before the formula is approved.
Containing the Adventures of Miss Lais Lovecock, written by herself and what happened at Miss Twigs Academy and Afterwards. Dialogues between a Jew and a Christian, a whimsical entertainment lately performed in Dukes Place. "I was born in the village of D--, in the country of L--, and (like most others) had but one mother, but cannot exactly answer for the number of fathers, as my poor innocent mother had more than once aspersions thrown on her character. One said she was seen, while my nominal father was from home, to go in her nightgown to the barn, where had a few minutes before our man, John Cods, been gone. A servant maid spread abroad that once passing her room she heard a whispering, and, knowing her master to be out, could not resist peeping through the keyhole, where she saw the footman, Samuel, kissing the alabaster bubbies of my mother, purposely exposed for his hot and lascivious embraces. But the latter tale may have been raised by jealousy, as probably the maid feared her Samuel sought pleasure in other arms than hers." www.victorian-erotica.org
