    Just because Birch Tar is mostly used in very small amounts doesn't mean we can't find the most beautiful example of the material. Far too often perfumers seek the lowest cost birch tar but at Fraterworks we consider that every material must be truly exquisite to be used in our fragrances and bases and sold to our clients and customers. And so we present this marvellous product from Payan Bertrand.

    Payan Bertrand's rectified Birch Tar from Finland is a model of good behaviour. It sits smoothly in a blend with absolutely no unwanted meaty or fishy notes that so often mar lower-quality versions of this natural.

    Because of the strength and cost of this birch tar we also offer it at 10% dilution in natural triethyl citrate which means it is still compatible with natural perfumery. Even at 10% dilution this oil is still very strong, so we suggest diluting further to 1% where its effect is still noticeable (as evidenced in our Aventus demonstration formula below).

    If you prefer something a little easier to dose and historically interesting, you might like our wonderful recreation of classic birch tar oil from the 19th century Bouleau Pyrogene 1840.

    General Information

    Like most suppliers and makers of quality raw materials for fragrances, we do not filter many of our products. This ensures that no odiferous matter is lost prior to use but can result in the appearance of small particles or slight clouding.

    All alcoholic fragrances should be macerated for up to a month and then chilled in a moderate freezer overnight before being filtered fine. This will remove all cloudiness or detritus and is the industry norm.

    Permitted amounts in finished product:
