Small Iron Smelter / Perfumery not producing

I have an issue with tool production. Although I have fuel available, and resources, and the Iron Smelter says its working, it doesn't appear to be actually producing anything. My blacksmith is always out of resources, and workers all without tools, and its getting problematic.

Granted, I did realise until a bit late that I needed to smelt iron ore, but production just doesn't appear to be happening.

Further, similar issue at the Perfumery - everything available, including a huge stock of flowers and water, and 2 workers, but I've not seen a single perfume be produced.

EDIT: The Perfumery did produce last season, actually, however, I have no idea where its gone? - the trading posts say I don't have any in my inventory. Does Perfume get used by something?

Any advice?
