OKOUMAL ® GIVAUDAN

Ambery, Woody, Tobacco, Musky

Okoumal gives significant volume, richness and warmth to fragrance compositions at a reasonable dosage. As little as 0.5 - 1% adds an attractive, woody-ambery effect. Okoumal combines well with cedar derivatives, patchouli oil and sandalwood products (eg. Ebanol). With its low vapour pressure and high MW, Okoumal is a body note and is extremely long lasting (more than 1 month) and substantive on every support. Okoumal is very stable in major applications.

bizarre, many subtle facets
Parker Turtenwald (Olympia, WA) 10/10/2019 8:59 PM
This is one that's very difficult to describe, but I'll try. Okoumal- does not seem very strong, either that or I quickly become anosmic to it. The smell reminds me of crushed up acorns, maybe almost toffee but not at all in a sweet sort of way, distantly reminiscent to oak but not woody, a little bit musky, slightly mushroom. Soft and simple. has a slightly dry edge. Maybe just a little bit of an exquisite something between an ambery, mossy, aquatic type smell. (Also a little bit of the exquisite hard-to-describe note of Trimofix) I think this also has a subtle lactonic cinnamon smell that contributes towards creating the impression of oak wood. It has a flat smell to it that sort of reminds me of the type of smell of VeryMoss (if you've smelled that). And yes, there is a little bit of an ambergris aspect as well. Maybe this is almost more of an effect than a smell. What this most reminds me of is the prized & highly expensive Japanese mushroom variety Matsutake, which has a unique and distinct aroma. When I smell Okoumal, the color that comes to mind is a light tan slightly yellowish beige, maybe a very slight grey hue.

The perfect balance of ambergris and wood.

Have a personal distrust of amber extreme . AKUMAL in the same direction, but it smells much more expensive. The perfect combination of amber, musk and wood. Here dry wood, ambergris gives a little sweetness. Feel some leather aspects. The greatest power came after dilution.
