Oakmoss absolute is used mainly in perfume, originates from France and is extracted from a light green lichen found growing primarily on oak trees, and sometimes on other species.
Oakmoss has an arid, natural aroma infused with the essence of rugged terrain and the great outdoors. Opening with a harmonious blend of dry, woody, and resinous facets reminiscent of bark and pine, it gradually unveils a velvety tapestry of moss, aged wood, decaying foliage, earthy fungus, and damp soil. Its profound and enigmatic character captivates the senses, invoking a sense of intrigue and mystery. This fragrance possesses exceptional longevity and serves as a remarkable anchor, lingering on the skin with remarkable strength.”
