Description and usage notes:

An exceptionally high quality woody-amber material with floral aspects and great potential for blending.

Here’s Arcadi Boix Camps writing in 1999: Kohinool “has a woody, floral, amber note with an unsurpassable beauty that combines extrememly well with Iso E Super, making what I believe is a dream accord. 

In the past I used to say that nothing was comparable to vetyveryl acetate or vetyverol, but, upon seeing mixtures of Iso E Super, Kohinool, cedroxyde, nor limbanol, boisanol, trimofix and amber ketal, my mind changed.  They are as great as the previously mentioned old and classical products. 

The best well-known use of Kohinool is Herrera for Men (around 5%).”

    Woody, dry. Useful to enhance Iso E Super. I would suggest to experiment step by step this rather powerful and definitely interesting ingredient that enhances any woody accord.
