This absolute was one of the best investments I've made. It smells like a fresh, clean, forest floor with sweet top notes. Smells very similar to the heart of most "sport" colognes in the market. You'll have to dilute it with another oil prior to use, since it's very thick out of the jar.
i really like this, i add it to my almond body butter it adds a nice richness, it is earthy and easy to use
Another item that is very hard to find, and CG carries it for an excellent price. I wish I would have ordered more than I did since I am already out of it, having used it as a fixative in solid perfume but at the same time making it one of the base notes in one of my blends. The scent is just right, not too "green" and yet woodsy. It is both stimulating and calming.
This could possibly be my favorite absolute so far!!!! It is an amazing scent you cant put your finger on but you love it anyway. DEFINITELY something I will continue to order!!!!
Earthy and warm
I could not get enough of this smell that smells like flowery, wet woods, and earth. Intense like patchouli but not in that incense/intense category. This absolute can be difficult to find- thanks CG! I've used it in CP soaps as a minor constituent, as such it adds depth, a bottom note that friends, family, and customers really like. I'm going to try using it alone in CP soap or in a solid perfume with a cypress or spruce plus orange/lime/lemon for a top note since I find that citrus scents, probably because of the low flash point, do not contribute enough to CP fragrance blends.
OMG! The smell is wonderful!
I use the Oakmoss Absolute in perfumes and a CP soap. This is an unbelievable wonderful scent. And it stays in the CP soap! Yeah!!!! Thank you for providing us with such a wonderful absolute!
I purchased this product because I wanted to make some scents for men. I hadn't planned on falling in love with it myself! When I smell it, I think of a huge forest with ancient trees, and an old stump soft from decay and covered in dark green moss. It's a beautiful color, too - dark, dark green as to be almost black. Very pleased with my purchase!
Ah, Mister Oakmoss, How Do We Love Thee...
There is no other aroma like that of oakmoss. It is rich, spicy, woody, green, arborous and... well, fantastic. It is a thick, resinous compound and sometimes a pain to work with as it lacks physical affinity for other oils in blending. But oh, the trouble is so worth it. Mr. Oakmoss is a fussy customer but he knows his strengths and unique value. He will reward you if you remain loyal to him and give him his proper due. CG's Oakmoss Absolute is glorious, thick, rich and green and comes at the best price I've found for such a quality product.
I'm in love.
I had heard of Oakmoss & always wanted to get my hands on some. When it arrived I did not know what to expect, would it be good? Would it be unremarkable? I picked the container & was immediately fascinated by the deep(almost black), jewel toned color. I opened it & it looked like green honey! Wow! And the fragrance? Sweet, rich & not what I was expecting. I wanted to put it on biscuits! Thank you Camden-Grey!
Absolutely! This is the Emerald Blob from the Enchanted Forest. If vanilla is the signature female aroma, this is its male counterpart. Your oakmoss absolute has a bright greeness and a depth that draws one in.
The best price on a valuable perfumery ingredient
I'm quite happy with the oakmoss absolute. Ever wondered where that "classic cologne smell" comes from? This is the stuff. It is thick, viscous and bright emerald green, with a very sweet smell and a stable dry-down. As resinous ingredients go, it's quite blendable: I recommend pre-diluting with Jojoba or another stable carrier oil, as it has a very strong aroma and can easily overtake the other scents in a blend!
I just opened the package (shipped fast) and opened the jar of oak moss...WOW! It is awesome. I just have to figure out how to get it to mix with my other Ess. Oils in my cologne because it is so thick. It smells awesome...I would wear it alone.
New to Oakmoss
This was the first time I've ordered Oakmoss and after getting it and reading other reviews from other companies realized that I had a very good Oakmoss in my hands. The color is amazing and smells clean and awesome. I was also pleased that the jar was the perfect type for this thicker oil.
Fresh, clean oakmoss
This is by far the best oakmoss I've smelled. Surprisingly fresh and clean, very long-lasting odor, more mossy than oaky, excellent fixative. Also, the color is beautiful, a transparent emerald-green, unlike others which are usually brownish and mucky-looking. Once again CG delivers a superior product at a very reasonable price.
