NerysNerys Oakmoss buys? 21.07.2014, 12:39
With the new perfume/IFRA rules which oakmoss perfumes do I buy before they are all unavailable/not sold anymore?

I would not worry too much. Adjustments will be made.

Already there are some great chypres, like Chypre Palatin by MDCI Paris and Chypre Mousse (2013) by Oriza L. Legrand; see Kafka for the latter one.

Unfortunately if you are looking for current offerings featuring oakmoss that ship has sailed... I *will* say that I concur with the Chypre Mousse recommendation (Chypre Palatin did not have enough of the stuff to capture my attention).

I would also recommend seeking out Azemour by Parfum d'Empire. I found a significant quantity still in that composition and it smells quite good on the whole.

If looking for vintages with oakmoss the options are endless, but my reference is vintage Captain by Molyneux. That composition is *loaded* with the stuff.

The current version of Sisley's Eau du Soir is a really lovely Chypre that reminds a bit of Mitsouko.
Others I've identified, but may not have tested yet are here: http://www.parfumo.net/Users/ScentFan/Collection/Cust2

I wish that was true, but I do have serious doubts about it pending the EU's slaughter of even low-atranol oakmoss. Sad

Diaghilev (Parfum) and Maai both feature a wonderful oakmoss.
I also recommend La Perla (1987) (Eau de Toilette) or, with almost as pronounced an oakmoss note, La Perla (2013) (Eau de Toilette).
