    Sophira is the restoration of the classical base Sophora, an artistic copy (created by Marius Reboul of Roure) of the competing Cedarome base by Chuit Naef & Cie. In Sophira, Reboul focussed on the intense vetiver quality of the original base which was a balance of vetiver and cedarwood.

    Sophira formed the core of Un Air Embaumé by Rigaud in 1912 combined with a healthy dose of Jasmin Blanc and it was key to Tabac Blond by Caron in 1919. It was also used in the magnificent Nuit de Chine (1911, Rosine) in harmony with Rose D'Orient and sandalwood. Like most bases of the era, Sophira is built around a delicate balance of other bases, resulting in a very complex and rich foundation for your fragrances.

    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.

    Green, soapy, classy

    The feel is inded vintage - evokes old expensive soap bars, spring days at a gentlemen's club, indoor gardens . I love its cleanliness, complexity, and green depth (but without being cloying). Planning to use it to replace part (or completely) the Vetiver EO in some formulas that could use some added complexity. Doesn't feel hard to use or to fit in a composition. I prefer this to Cedarome, which is more impactful and more woody.


    at first you find this base quite difficult to work with cause you dont smell this anywhere else! i tried mixing this with the mandarine base by Frater and adding more smokey elements from the vetiver side, it is a like hermes meets 1912!!
