    Gone (until now) but not forgotten, Epicene Gamma from IFF was a classic masterpiece — a veritable panoply of herbs, woods and spices blended perfectly and used in such classics as Guerlain's Vetiver (2000), Opium Pour Homme (1995, formula below) and Equipage by Hermès (1970).

    It was an IFF captive and recently discontinued which is regretful as some great fragrances will now be reformulated to accommodate the loss.

    In a modern context this base is usable up to 1.2% and lends a wonderful spice vibe to a fragrance without the need to balance individual spice materials.

    Note: This base contains Lilial® and, as such, is IFRA compliant but prohibited from use in fragrances sold in the European Union.

    Afterword: this base should not be confused with Epice FW which was a classic Synarome base Epicea used in Arpege.

    Appearance: Light amber liquid
    Lasts > 400 hours on a smelling strip

    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.

    Usage Restrictions

    Permitted amounts in finished product:

    IFRA 51: Coming Soon
    IFRA 49: 1.2%

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

    Ingredients may need to be listed as per your local legislation based on data found in the EU allergens report.
