Description: If you've ever smelled Oakmoss, then you probably understand why high end luxury designers such as Chanel, Cartier, and Dior have chosen Oakmoss to add to some their perfumes and colognes. This is truly an exquisite botanical, which is why so many very luxury perfumers add to at least one of their products.
Oakmoss has a masculine touch, which is why it is no surprise than most men tend to love it and often are attracted to grooming products that contain it.
Oakmoss can cause skin sensitivity, especially in those with already sensitive skin, so many perfumers and skincare manufacturers have substituted Oakmoss and will use a blend to mimic the aroma instead.
Oakmoss can be used in aromatherapy blends to create beautiful and handsome blends to diffuse around the home.
(Oakmoss 4ml may have a reducer cap which is used to control drops of oils. Oakmoss, however, is too thick to come through reducer. If your Oakmoss has a reducer, please remove to extract.)
