    This replaces our previous Canadian castoreum tincture (9 years aged) which is now sold out. This new product is one of great refinement owing to the extremely high quality wild castors we have used to produce this special tincture. In comparison to our Siberian tincture, this is less smokey and more typical of the scent most people associate with classic castoreum.

    ‘Castoreum [tincture's] warm, animal, leather-like sweet odour makes it an interesting item in “men's perfumes”, fougeres, chypres, Oriental bases, leather notes, Tabac bases, etc. [It blends] particularly well with ambra notes, calamus, cananga, cedarwood Atlas, chamomile moroccan, creosol, labdanum products, isoeugenol, oakmoss products, sandalwood oil, […] etc.’ — S. Arctander. Perfume and Flavor Materials of Natural Origin, Carol Stream: Allured Publishing Corporation, 2008, pp. 136–137.

    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.

    IFRA Standards

    Permitted amounts in finished product:

    These are derived from calculated concentrations which do not replace chromatographic quantification on individual lots. Disclaimer...
