    Fixomusk™ is an elegant restoration of the original Fixomusc of Chuit Naef & Cie popularised by fragrances such as Styx by Coty, Après L'Ondée and L'Heure Bleue by Guerlain and great later 20th century scents such as Poison by Dior, Oscar de la Renta, Parfum Sacré by Caron and Gianfranco Ferré for men.

    Fixomusk is a soft and sweet animalic fixative base loaded with luxurious natural oils and absolutes. It is synergistic with Ambreine, Opoponax Doux and Irrozol. Use traces to add incredible longevity to your perfumes and cosmetics, or overdose it for its unique scent profile.

    Due to the presence of musk ketone at a whopping 17%, Fixomusk should be restricted to 8.2% of a finished fragrance for customers requiring compliance with EU 1223/2009. Musk ketone is legal and unrestricted by IFRA but limited in quantity in European cosmetic products (including fine fragrance).

    This crystallises slightly in cold environments. Apply gentle heat to dissolve.

    Note: in preparation for IFRA 51 this product has been slightly reformulated and Benzyl Benzoate has been entirely eliminated.

    IFRA 51: 10% of finished product (Cat. 4)
    Appearance: Gold liquid; crystalline at low temperatures
    Longevity: Lasts more than one month 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.

    IFRA Standards

    Permitted amounts in finished product:

    IFRA 51: 10%
    IFRA 49: 10.21%

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

    For Trade Use Only

    Our products are intended as building blocks in the perfume creation process; they are not to be applied to the skin undiluted.

    These raw materials are for use by the perfumery trade only.

    Amazing musk base

    This is hands down the best musk material I have ever smelled! It makes Shangralide seem screechy and synthetic by comparison. I probably could wear this on its own. Gorgeous!

    Smooth, cocooning musk

    So lovely with various floral and ambery trials. Easy to play with and dose. Adds a rich, cocooning nuance to several different trials. Eager to play with it in overdose to see what it does! Well done.
