Description and usage notes:

An unusual ingredient that, according to Arctander, has an odour similar “to that of freshly decorticated Cypress twigs (material ready for distillation )”. He goes on to say that “This ester is an excellent modifier / blender for Labdanum, and a good companion wherever Labdanum is used: Balsamic-Ambre-Chypre-Fougere, etc., and it acts as a supporting fixative.” 

Exceptionally useful because it’s so well priced compared to Labdanum products.
