    Default oakmoss sightings? List them here, please!

    I had thought it was all but banned... But now I occasionally see it in note Pyramids of regent fragrances. Dunhill Icon comes to mind.


    Please list recent fragrances containing oak moss.

    I'll start...

    Stirling Varen has a warning on it due to the oakmoss content, didn't see that from any of the other scents that supposedly contained oakmoss on site

    Do you mean just any newer releases that have oakmoss as a note, or new stuff that actually lists oakmoss extract in the ingredients list like Terre d'Hermes?

    Part of this stems from the way they ruined polo green... I'm hopeful that somebody will finally reformulate it to recapture its original essence

    I'm curious as to newer fragrances that, despite strict regulations, are creating scents with oak moss. I think it's a bold move, and frags that contain oak moss intrigue me.

    The reviews for Stirling Varen make this seem great for what you're looking for

    I have a bottle of Varen and it's not for the faint of heart. But it does have a boatload of that oakmoss goodness. Enough to give some penpusher at the IFRA a heart attack.

    A much better example, as Mousse Illuminee is actually tree moss. Chypre-Siam is definitely oakmoss and smells great.

    Yeah, Varen has some of the highest concentration of oakmoss in a perfume I have ever sniffed. Great stuff. Also loaded with oakmoss (this time paired with gobs of aromatic patchouli) from the same house (Stirling Soap Company) is Glastonbury.

    Was surprised to see oakmoss in a 2020 (batch Y20...) bottle of Giorgio for Men, midway on the ingredients list along with treemoss.

    Also, there's oakmoss in my recent (2019, if I remember right) bottle of Kouros, which was a surprise too. And it smells fine to me.

    An oakmoss trend replacing the ambroxan one would be like heaven.
    I don’t understand.It is so vast that surpasses all understanding.Understanding is always limited.But not understanding can have no boundaries.I feel like I'm much more complete when I don't understand.Not understanding,like I say,is a gift.Not understanding,but not as a simple-minded.The good thing is to be intelligent and not understand.It's a strange blessing, like having craziness without being crazy.It is a meek disinterest,it is a stupid sweetness.

    Want to add one more: Agua Brava. The current iteration is the brown wood-themed box and, while I can't say which year my bottle was produced in (I bought it new last year), it does still list oakmoss. And it is noticeable to me in the nice drydown too.

    So far, got a slightly mossier tone from several current (rather than vintage) Houbigant scents, like the ongoing fromulations of Duc de Vervins plus Fougrere Royale, however both of these on the pricier side

    The EDP version of Trumper's Eucris is laden with the stuff, or at least a bucket load of the synthetic.

    I saw a wild oakmoss stalking the woods behind my condo. It ate a neighbor taking his dog for a walk but left the dog unharmed thankfully.

    But on a serious note, Beau de Jour lists oakmoss in the ingredients.

    I believe a number of Rogue fragrances have oak moss in them. Down with IFRA and who are they to tell us what to do over here anyway!?

    Aramis Devin & 900. Further, I would've named Aramis for Men, Tuscany, JHL and New West but I think the Oak Moss was either replaced with Tree Moss or stripped out completely. Lauder for Men still packs Oak Moss though.

    It may come across as a surprise to some that the new Hermes H24 has oakmoss listed.

    Low-atranol oakmoss is still 'oakmoss', I suppose. Thank heavens some perfumers have found a viable way to hang onto it.

    Lomani pour Homme (says "New Design" and "Very Original" on the package, lol). "Evernia Prunastri (Oakmoos extract)" is mentioned a little past halfway on the ingredients list, no tree moss. I've never smelled the vintage but I love this, and it's crazy cheap. Don't know how much it is because of the moss in the base, but I get OK longevity.

    Was originally meant to be a Drakkar Noir clone back in 87 but cheap clone outfits like Lomani didn't really use GCMS machines back then (although they do now) so it ended up more of an adjacent style than a direct imitation. It's a very good fougère with some chypre-ish traits.
