Lavender
Rosemary
Patchouli
Peppermint
Eucalyptus
Star Anise

Litsea cubeba
10x orange or other citrus
Cedar

Edit to add: these also have the advantage of being some of the least expensive EO's :)

Essential oil

Can someone tell me where I can find Quince essential oil? I've searched everywhere with no success. It must be pretty costly to be this hard to locate!

I was browsing at one of your links, and it dawn on me that Lemongrass is a top note. I thought top notes have weak lasting scents, however my lemongrass last forever. Maybe not forever, but a long time...like months (many).
