Oakmoss - Evernia prunastri (Usneaceae)

 

Country of origin: 

Extraction method: solvent extraction

Oakmoss adds to the smell of the forest with its dry fungoid earthy-woody odour. In spite of its name, oakmoss is not a moss but a lichen, growing on the bark of deciduous and coniferous trees. It was used in perfumery as early as the 16'th century. Baskets filled with it have been found in the ancient royal tombs of Egypt, but whether it was intended for perfume is not known. A mixture of phenolic acids extracted from oakmoss has been used in drugs for treating external wounds and infections. In modern time oakmoss has been collected in France, Morocco and Yugoslavia and extracted for perfumery purposes, but today some of the most important odour-active ingredients are made synthetically.

Our oakmoss has been tested by Research Institute for Fragrance Materials (RIFM) an is IFRA approved.
