    When it comes to current versions of things, one of the first that comes to mind is Hermes Equipage, which for me becomes a veritable forest of oak moss as it develops. Really gorgeous stuff.

    Have to agree - this is one of the best modern oakmoss-laden fragrances I have ever experienced.
    Guess I'll have to crack open my bottle!

    Chanel Pour Monsieur
    Lancome Sagamore
    Armani Eau Pour Homme
    Gucci Pour Homme (1976)

    For a fragrance marketed to women: Mitsouko.

    If much more than oak moss is making up the heft of a fragrance, it doesn't smell like oak moss to me. These five have the same kind of oak moss note, to my nose.

    Add Guerlain Vol de Nuit, the vintage formulations are really good.

    I never really looked at that! Thanks for continuing my education. Now to go through and look for deep base *oak moss* frags!

    This is a good one - not one I love emphatically, but it's good. I'm not a huge fan of oakmoss in and of itself, but the Rogue Perfumery one is pretty impressive, and my favourite scent containing some (presumably synthetic) oakmoss is Tom Ford's Beau de Jour.

    According to his site, you are right. Only treemoss is listed. Some of his more oakmoss heavy fragrances would be fougere l’aube and chypre siam. Both list oakmoss, not treemoss. So dpes tabac vert

    My vote for best oakmoss would be vintage antaeus followed by vintage kouros.

    I have been reading this thread with lot of keen attention and my only problem with many names being mentioned here is that oakmoss heavy vintages are fine but they are mostly ( with some stunning exceptions like polo green etc ) not wearable due to a 'old man's feel to them ....a guy who is younger in 20s or 30s ( I am in early 40s) won't be able to wear them on a regular basis as a scent of choice but only as some piece of art sparingly ( I ended up buying lot of these vintages due to buzz around them but had to ultimately gift them to my dad who is in his 70s and wore them enthusiastically ! ) ....the best part about rogue perfumery creations is that he has been able to modernise ( for lack of a better word ) the oakmoss smell to suit today's tastes...and that's a masterskill I haven't seen elsewhere ....hence I am a big fan of manuels creations !!
    I wear tabac & mousee and chypre Siam ....with lot of passion and in my eyes he is one of the top indie artists that I have been fortunate to come across !
