After Mousse de Saxe perhaps no other classical base is as well known as Prunol SP by De Laire. Prunol is a wonderful floral and fantasy fruit base with a stronger emphasis on the floral than fruit. Nevertheless it imparts a luscious sweet plummy note to fragrances. Edmond Roudnitska created the base after his wartime discovery of casks of a rare type of methyl ionone discarded in the De Laire yard.
To this he added many other products including luxurious naturals of Poplar bud, Helichrysum absolute, precious Boronia absolute and more. Blended with spices, lactones and a fond of De Laire bases, Prunol SP was born. Our base is 100% faithful to that formula by Roudnitska and so, in consquence, it contains Poplar bud absolute - a natural plant extract rich in salicin which may need to be avoided by people with allergies to aspirin or salicylic acid.
Prunol is fruity, spicy, aldehydic, and floral. It is a powerful base and has a usability level up to 7.8% for IFRA 49 compliance, it can be used in an overdose for a novel effect. It featured heavily in the 1943 perfume Femme for Rochas. In the 21st century in which we find gourmand fragrances all the rage, Prunol SP deserves a renaissance.
This is neither a perfume nor a foodstuff; it is a raw material for use in manufacturing. Do not consume. Do not apply to skin. Keep away from children.
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.

This fragrance is incredibly beautiful, to the point where it leaves me a bit bewildered. It's even sweeter than fruit, and the powdery iris note is absolutely perfect. I'm absolutely in love with it! 😊
I am rapidly collecting all of Jamie's historic bases. They are beautiful and fascinating perfumes in themselves. Prunol is not just plums. It is dry fruit immersed in spices, iris, woods, and a touch of skank. In putting together the lovely Femme Fatale demo formula, prunol is largely responsible for that undercurrent of humanness and sensuality; that stays just shy of animalic. I feel so grateful to be able to experience these reconstructions.
When you want the dried fruits note this is your go to. It can be taken in so many directions - I can think of a dozen complimentary notes off the top of my head. And it has fantastic longevity.
Get this if not to just assemble the "Femme Fatale" formula which builds around this base beautifully.
Great Base the formula came out to satisfaction and would buy again
