See below for more description and documentation

Note: there seems to be a worldwide shortage of this material at the moment but we have now managed to obtain a stock of original Veramoss.



Description and usage notes:

A deceptively powerful material that can have a significant effect on a blend: It is an excellent fixative and adds great depth and substance to almost any fragrance.

Note that we’re using the names Evernyl and Veramoss because they are familiar – current stock is original Veramoss produced by IFF but we sometimes also carry a generic product of the substance also known as Evernyl, Methyl Atratate etc – if the provenance is important to you please contact us to check prior to purchase.

Used alongside natural oakmoss it is possible to create a very effective facsimile of a traditional Fougère using this material, though it isn’t a full substitute for oakmoss on its own, this chemical is one of the key odour components of oakmoss absolute.

    Evernyl Veramoss is a very useful material. Must always a place for every Apprentice Perfumer and beyond. Remember truly natural Oak Moss. But it is always a synthetic and will never have that softness diffusive at the Oak of Mother Nature.
