Gentle warm hug
Matt S (Pismo Beach, CA) 3/26/2020 5:47 AM
Very strange, when I try to study this material I don't smell it straight away, I smell it when I breathe out my nose, it reminds of a papery ambergris, warm but very nuanced/subtle like a gentle warm hug in the dark. Probably more noticeable in blends after maceration of weeks or months.
Excellent to add volume and diffusion

This is a great, effective material to add volume to precious woods or Sandalwood accords. It has a sharp top note that quickly dissipates in blending. In traces it punches up Frankincense or Cypriol, and it also makes a Cedarwood Atlas seem more woodsy if need be. To me, it's more of a modifier (but powerful at it) that works well to enhance precious woods as said above, or for patchouli, vetiver, or orris notes. I've smelled it in people's perfumes passing by, it's got a sharp note recalling Norlimbanol, but much sweeter and ambery overall, so it is easier than Norlimbanol to work with.
bizarre, many subtle facets

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.
