    Muschio di Quercia / Oak Moss by AbdesSalaam Attar Profumo

    Vetyver, sandalwood, oakmoss
    This is an exceptional scent. I find it to be in two parts. The first is an excellent moss, different from many mossy scents. The moss seems forest-y to me, with lots of forest floor and undergrowth (leaves rather than pine needles). At times it is a tiny bit minty. It is a very distinctive green, not heavy but assertive. I like this phase very much. At other times, the typical salty quality of moss gives this a bit of the seaweed at the beach scenario, also very pleasant. This is dry, with no florals or sweetness. The second part of the scent is a great vetiver: it has earthy, tangy, smoky qualities. The sandalwood is very background, I donít get it as a distinct element.
    I think this is worthy for consideration by any lover of green or mossy or vetiver-based scents.
