    There can be no doubt that Firmenich is usurpassed in the production of the finest musks. From Helvetolide® to Muscenone®, their products reign supreme. We are currently the only retail supplier of their incredible Muscone Laevo, the highest quality form of muscone produced by any company and the chemical which is at the very heart of genuine natural Tonkin deer musk.

    When compared to the more common (and inferior) muscone (usually referred to simply as "muscone"), laevo muscone is stronger, more animalic, more natural and more erogenous. Arcadi Boix Camps once opined: “It is perceptible in very small amounts and its fixation is so extreme that it seems incredible. Although it doesn’t substitute completely for the natural product, it is equal to it on the lasting properties. We can consider it outstanding and it imparts great elegance.” It should be noted that some people are completely anosmic to muscone and laevo muscone.

    This noble product adds astounding fixation and a ribbon of refined and luxurious animalic warmth. Sniffing Firmenich's Laevo Muscone is like burying your face in a rich fur coat. Undeniably this musk is essential for every perfumer.

    Appearance: Colourless liquid
    Longevity: 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.

    IFRA Standards

    Permitted amounts in finished product:

    IFRA 51: 100%
    IFRA 49: 100%

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