    The famed Mousse de Saxe base has been, until now, long gone — though modernised bases have appeared in recent years as historic perfumery becomes popular once again. Fraterworks Saxon Moss is true to the original Mousse de Saxe. Once again perfumers can indulge in this masterpiece.

    Rich with naturals, including a megadose of Mysore sandalwood, this wonderful mossy leathery base can be felt at less than 1% of a fragrance yet it can still be used in overdose as it was previously in such fragrances as Nuit de Noel by Caron.

    Appearance: deep amber 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:

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

    Great base

    Used it in my first masculine fragrance as the only wood/leather part of the perfume. Added a few ionones, an aromatic heart and some bergamot, and after 3-4 weeks of maceration you have a finished fragrance that oozes class.

    Legendary De Laire Base restored

    Mr. Frater's restoration of the famed De Laire base is masterful. It is green, mossy, and leathery. It's a perfume all on its own. It was featured in many classics such as Habanita, Nuit de Noel (along with most all Caron perfumes pre-1990), Chanel Bois des Iles, Hermes Caleche to name a few. The original is still being produced by Symrise now but it's missing the je ne sais quoi from Jamie's version. If you're looking to reproduce or get inspired by this base, it's a great start. Get it. It's worth it.


    This is complete legit safe to use under IFRA / Eu, compliments with a lot of beautiful bases here on frater site and works wonders with aromatics and leathery notes.
