Thread: SL Chene oak or oakmoss

what is your favorites oakmoss ?
Looking for Creed Spice & Wood / swap fragances , Creed Vingate Tabarome and more... http://www.basenotes.net/threads/374...me-Cuir-Beluga
Oak whisky barrels, booze, and spices, not oakmoss, and certainly not a chypre.
For a mossy chypre I'd turn to Givenchy III, Mitsouko, or Balmain de Balmain.
I get my oakmoss fix from Mitsouko, Odalisque and vintage Acqua di Parm Profumo.
The votes are unanimous, it is oak wood. Chene is a wonderfully woody scent.
I am partial to old-school fougeres for my oakmoss fix: Penhaligons English Fern, Geo. F. Trumpers Wild Fern. These recall the amazing Houbigant Fougere Royale, which reputedly will be re-launched (re-formulated, no doubt) sometime soon. I have some vintage Houbigant, it is the mossy crown jewel of my collection.
