    Default Petition to oppose the ban of oakmoss ..

    As some of you know, the EU intends to completely ban Chloroatranol and Atranol. These chemicals are essential components of oak moss and tree moss, and without them, chypres and fougères may all but disappear. Moreover, oak moss can be found in the base notes of perfumes of every type because it is an excellent fixative which dramatically extends the longevity of a fragrance. Lyral® is also on the chopping block, and though you may not automatically recognise the name, this material is integral to the formula of many popular perfumes. "Aventus", "Coco" and "Poison" and its flankers are just a few of the fragrances that would have to be completely re-worked if the pending law is enacted.

    Although this legislation is pending in Europe, it will have an impact on perfume the world over if it is passed. If history is any indication, the IFRA is sure to embrace the law and perfume houses will be forced to adopt the new guidelines, resulting in massive reformulations and discontinuations. Not if we have our way, however. Please join in opposing the legislation by signing the petition.

    Edit:
    Signatures by non-EU citizens are welcome.

    The regulatory authority tasked with evaluating public sentiment regarding the law is actively soliciting contributions to the debate by any interested party.

    The petition is flanking a contribution by perfume lovers.

    Are there persons familiar with the EU's response to past petitions who can affirm that signatures from non-EU citizens aren't considered presumptious or otherwise off-putting?

    Thanks for the link and the info.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.

    Default Petition to protect your fragrances

    http://www.kafkaesqueblog.com/2014/0...u-regulations/

    Guys, EU is going to ban Oakmoss and other ingredients. This means reformulations and Frederic Malle has said that they will need to change at least a quarter of the fragrances.

    Tonka bean, oakmoss, citrus etc all at risk.

    We are talking about significant reformulations and increase in cost therefore price hikes...

    LVMH owns Dior etc will need to change
    Frederic Malle is against this
    L'oreal (YSL) no comment because they use a lot of synthetics already.

    Hi!

    There has already been a thread about this here so we'll merge the threads.

    For those who missed the recent update it's here.

    And here's a link to Frederic Malle's interview by Persolaise.

    The ban does not concern me since I do not use these notes in my perfumes

    Mia, that's so important.
    It is good to see that different forums in perfume sites may come together on it.
    And that we can talk about it openly here.
    I'll sign too.
