Do Not Like How This Blends
J.Fred Decker (San Francisco, CA) 5/9/2019 11:38 PM
Thoroughly smitten with natural Oakmoss Absolute, I find this a nice sniff from the bottle but an unreliable blender. In blends, to my nose, it developes a strong, 'inky bitterness' (see previous review), especially against Tonka/Coumarin in Fougeres. Haven't tried other Oakmoss substitutes yet, but this one, sadly, fails for me.

While oakmoss absolute has a greenness, jammy opulence, and a more amped up inky bitterness, this particular reconstitution lacks all of those facets and smells like a drier more woody-earthy variety without the complexity of the absolute. It's almost like a case of wet moss vs dry moss, so to speak. I'm giving this product 3 of 5 stars because of the reasons mentioned above. Still, don't knock this stuff. Real oakmoss has a tendency to overwhelm a composition if used carelessly. This synthetic reconstitution is more mellow and would work well where a dry woody-mossy note is needed without any greenness.
