    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...

    Beautifully rich

    A beautifully rich labdanum with a deep savoury character, notes of tea and church pews! One of the best I've encountered.

    #1 Labdanum in my organ

    I’ve got several labdanums in my palette but this is my favorite by far. I find this one to have so much depth and nuance, bringing an addictive mystery to the blends I use it in.

    best labdanum !

    This is my go to Labdanum now. It's so deep and rich. I also love the fact that it's in a 50% dilution. I now use more Labdanum than before because I don't dread the sticky mess I was used to with the pure stuff !

    If you imagine what amber incense smells like, this would be the exact description, a sweet resinous aroma with smoky tones
