Product Overview

Our very fine Oakmoss Absolute has dry, earthy, bark and pine-like top notes over smooth, rich notes of moss, wood, decaying leaf, fungus, lichen, and damp earth notes. The aroma is deep, mysterious, and evocative. As one customer review states, our Oakmoss Absolute conveys the aroma of a faerie wood – an apt phrase to describe the mysterious menagerie of notes that lend body, naturalness and tenacious fixative value to almost all types of base note accords in perfumery.

Until recently, Oakmoss Absolutes have contained potential allergens with a high risk of skin sensitization; ours is extracted in France, contains a low percentage of atranol (a known contact allergen) and meets international standards. Most Oakmoss extracts are now currently restricted for use by the IFRA – the International Fragrance Association – but ours is IFRA-compliant; see IFRA conformity certificate in the Documentation section above. The absolute is solvent and alcohol extracted from Evernia prunastri, a lichen that grows on mostly oak trees.[1]

Review by cat 2/15/2013

Was gifted this scent, and it is now a base to 2 of my fairy themed body sprays.

I received this as a gift from a friend, who captured my personality in a scent perfectly. I adore the smell of deep mossy green. Goes well in a body wash, or body spray. My fiancee likes this with a bit of lemongrass!
