    IFRA  issued Oakmoss in 1988 and restricted "Oakmoss Absolute" to 0.6% final product. During 1989, the same happened on concrete oakmoss.

     

    1991: same 0.6% restriction for Treemoss

    1997: further restriction (both mosses) to 0.1% final product

    2001 : 0.1% limit only for DHA acid in the raw material; it's the main responsible for sensitization. 

    2008: Mosses extracts must have a very low quantity of Atranol and similar substances 

     

    .....If you want a flood of Oakmoss, it's better to find something before 1988 :)

    Thanks for posting - if only oakmoss were the only problem!

    And pre-1988 examples are getting quite mature now :(

    Andre thank you for this info.

     

    to andre & all other informative BN - which fragrances from the pre-1988 era whose production was stopped in 1988 (basically without reformulation) are readily available in the market / online retailers? Looking for the oak-moss rich fragrances that might still be available...(I didn't feel starting a new thread on this would be worthwhile)...

    First coming in my mind is "Monsieur de Givenchy", in the old bottle.

    Please note there is one year to fulfill the IFRA rules, so, when we say "1988" or "1989", this generically mean 1989 ad 1990.
