    Anyone know where I can get Zaja Oil in the UK?

    Our last batch came from Broadland music but their website seems to be dead, there's none on Ebay and google isn't helping.... I need my vanilla fix!

    I think they are now, unfortunately, out of business.

    Have you tried Phil Parkers?

    Alex - I have never found any success getting Zaja in the UK, when I have purchased it I have used the US stores (Hickeys in particular). A good service and shipping that is very reasonable, especially if you are buying more than a single bottle or other accessories/music as well.
    My apologies if you first got into Zaja scented due to Clare Tarron - it could have been my fault (I introduced her to it) lol
    I will have a search around here, I might have a bottle kicking around somewhere

    Hi Mike,
    thanks for that - I'll hunt through some US stores and get a batch in.
    And yes, it appears you are ultimately to blame.... half the band is using the stuff now! ;)

    Sorry Alex - have checked, have got Strawberry, Lime, Watermelon and Grapefruit, but no Vanilla.

    I got sick of the smell of it after a while.

    sick of vanilla? :eek: Never!

    actually, the lass who sits next to me would probably agree..... she even stopped using a vanillary perfume because it smelt like my valves, lol.

    I've ordered a gazillion bottles of the stuff from a US supplier so thanks for the tip.

    It's all about getting the right mix! I use vanilla on one valve, strawberry on another and swiss chocolate on the last one.... the result...... Neopolitan ice cream scented goodness!!!! I find the chocolate and vanilla on their own a bit sweet but in combination it's lovely!! :D

    I would have thought that it might be a tad sharp! :rolleyes:

    Nope! Maybe I should have invested in some of the lime scented to put on my first valve to save me lipping up? Instant sharpness!!! ;)

    I would avoid the Lime at all costs - it smells of Toilet Duck!
    I used to use it on student's valves when they had forgotten their oil - after a week of having their valves STINK of toilet cleaner they never forgot their oil again!!

    when I suggested that one, everyone looked at me like I was insane..... guess you just confirmed their suspicions! ;)

    It puts me more in mind of cat wee..... I'd rather be unable to to play than use that flavour again!

    I'm definitely a vanilla girl.
