These recommendations are based on scientific datas from the Research Institute for Fragrance Materials (RIFM).

Volatile oils occur not only in flowering plants, but also in some of the cryptogams. However, only a few members of the latter group can be utilized for the extraction of their fragrance on a commercial scale.

Most important among them are the lichens Evernia prunastri. These grow as epiphytes on the trunks of the oak, and certain fruit and pinaceous trees, particularly in southern and central Europe.

When dried and stored for a period of time, these lichens develop a peculiar mossy, earthy odor, the carriers of which can be extracted with volatile solvents, which yield the so-called resinoids, concretes and absolutes of OakMoss.

In its strict sense the name 'Oak Moss' refers only to Evernia prunastri, the true OakMoss or 'Mousse de chene', which grows chiefly on the bark of the oak. True Oak Moss, collected from oak trees, has the most pronounced and finest odor.

The lichen is collected from the bark of the trunk and branches, during the dry season. They are then baled and pressed. On arrival in the extraction plant it should be stored in a cool and dry place to prevent fermentation, which will spoil the odor of the moss.

In general, Oak Moss preparations are not only excellent odor fixatives, but impart to the finished product (whether soap, cosmetic, lotion or handkerchief perfume) a peculiar, earthy, mossy character.

Oak Moss preparations are indispensable in the creation of chypre and fougere scents. A number of well known and popular perfumes owe their alluring, exotic odor to a substantial content of oak moss extracts. These extracts have become an important tool in the hands of the experienced perfumer.

Caution:External use only.Do not use undiluted on the skin.Keep away from children & pets. Store away from heat & light.
