    Oakmoss is not the allergen. It was discovered a couple of years ago (after EU regulations) that Tree moss is the allergen.

    There are a lot of synth oak moss/ oak moss substitutes running around and the IFRA/EU thinks both tree moss and oak moss are allergens. From what I've read, there is no good tree moss substitute, which is why you see tree moss listed under allergens for a lot of the new formulations and not oak moss.

    But I don't think Creed is an IFRA member so it would be a moot point for them.

    I wish I could be excited about new Creeds..............

    There is talk among perfumers of one of the companies coming up with a [processed oakmoss with the material which is the reason for the restriction by IFRA removed. They don't know if it will smell good enough yet..

    I agree about the Creeds.

    First impressions:

    Light, superbly balanced, yet lasts approx. 6 hours. The citrus melange at the top is what you would expect from Creed - made with top notch citrus materials and each note is balanced against the other. The blackcurrant is well tempered, and you all can allay your fears about the pineapple and apple notes - these ain't the typically loud and scratchy ones you find in other modern frags, they just add a subtle apple/pineapple layer to the citrus top (and are ofcourse ephemeral and disappear in minutes). The patchouli/birch is most prominent in the middle notes yet its not the bushwhacker patchouli you find in the typical frag - think a light leathery patchouli accord with toned down soft florals. Patchouli Patch lovers will love it. Need more time to decide on the base. Check out the Society-of-Friends-not-Fanboys Creed Group for a chance to get samples.

    Now on the CREED website. Looks like the US will be getting this ahead of everyone else.
