Oakmoss - Absolute

Oakmoss (Evernia prunastri) is a species of lichen native to the mountainous temperate forests throughout the Northern Hemisphere, including parts of France, Portugal, Spain, North America, and much of Central Europe. Oakmoss grows primarily on the trunk and branches of oak trees, but also on the bark of other deciduous trees and conifers such as fir and pine.

The oil is a dark green, semi-solid or solid mass, or very viscous liquid, with a dry, earthy, pine-like top note over smooth, rich notes of moss, wood, decaying leaf, fungus, lichen, and damp earth notes.

It is traditionally used in perfumery as a fixative, especially in chypre fragrances, to add a deep, mysterious, evocative scent. Magically, it is related to prosperity.

It blends well with anise, bay, bergamot, clary sage, eucalyptus, ginger, lavender, lime, orange, palmarosa, tea tree, vetiver, and ylang ylang.
