    Olibanum CNC is one of the finest Chuit Naef bases from the early 20th century. It incorporates the noblest aspects of the frankincense tree (Omani Boswellia sacra) — from the pure heart of the resin to the sacred essential oil.

    Olibanum CNC is richly floralised with pure and natural oils and absolutes and further enriched with the highest quality aroma chemicals. This base was so beloved that it extended past company boundaries and great perfumers with no connection to Chuit Naef & Cie (perfumers such as Jean Carles,) used it liberally in some of their greatest creations, for example Miss Dior.

    Olibanum CNC can be used in traces to impart a fine frankincense note through the entire life of a fragrance, or in overdose for a special cachet. Olibanum CNC is practically a perfume unto itself and it transports you to the wonderous ancient orient from whence came the Three Magi, golden pharaonic dynasties, and incense clouded sultanates.

    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: 6.66%
    IFRA 49: 6.6%

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

    For Trade Use Only

    Yes, and what! Incredibly well blended! Together with Jasmine Imperial, it can form a wonderful pair in a Tuscan Leather type fragrance. As already written, it works as a perfume on its own. Just dilute, spray, close your eyes and transport yourself in meditation to the cathedral and quietly enjoy its sacred atmosphere...

    Holy smokes!

    I thought this smelled a little underwhelming from the bottle but, diluted and put on skin it's astonishing! Ethereal, powdery incense and spices, where it's impossible to pull the materials apart - Incredibly well blended. Could be a perfume in its own right.

    Beautifully Balanced.

    I purchased a tiny bit of this to play around with, and now it's just become and essential part of my collection. It's a beautifully balanced base, that invokes the Ottoman and Byzantine empires. It can be used as a base, I love to use it as an additional note and tobacco, honey, and clove based fragrances. LOVE

    Tobacco,. honey and clove sounds like a match made in heaven! This is one of those bases that can really add complexity and richness without dominating. Thanks for your review!

    Ethereal floral incense base

    Who would’ve thought there was a floralised incense base as beautiful as this? I purchased a little of it and now I must buy more cause I can see it really improving any formula requiring an incense note.
