For all who mourn the loss of the elegant, unsweetened, full bodied chypres of the mid 20th Century.
Oakmossery first came to life as an example of how to make a chypre fragrance, the style also called mossy, because in its classic form - around 1900 to 2000 - it always contained oakmoss, cedarmoss, or the Veramoss molecule, or a combination of these. Oakmoss is not from the ground, nor is it the soft moss you’ll find on the bark, it’s a lichen which hangs from the branches of Mediterranean oaks, and has been used in perfumes for thousands of years. In the classic style, no one mentioned notes, as the perfumer’s aim was to create a single aroma, a blend with no borders, so that each material was imperceptible within the perfumed swirl around you. This one has flowers, fruits, woods, balsams, musks and moss.
Oakmossery is a fragrance for all who mourn the loss of the elegant, unsweetened, full bodied chypres of the mid 20th Century.
