Oak Moss is indispensable in the collection of a natural perfumer. A number of well known and popular perfumes owe their unique and alluring scent to earthy oak moss extract. We highly recommend this oak moss absolute. It's the best we have ever smelled with hints of pine and wood over deep wet forest and rich mossy earth. An excellent fixative and foresty base note to take your perfumes to a new level.
Our Oakmoss Absolute is approved for use in perfumery by IFRA. It is extracted in France and is low in atranol so that it may be safely used in your natural perfumes or your base accords.
A note on absolutes: Absolutes are highly concentrated aromatic materials. Their aroma is best observed in alcohol or carrier oil. Try diluting into one of our premium carrier oils or into alcohol at 5%, 10% or 20% and see how the scent will subtley change.
