I have reviewed L’Aromarine Jasmin in a previous post. L’Aromarine fragrances are very potent fragrance oils that have a nice price tag. Oakmoss is not as potent as Jasmin but it is still a very long wearing oil. The picture above is that of the EDT spray. I have the fragrance oil and use it as is and love it.
When I first applied Oakmoss I was surprised by its complexity. All I could think of were the old forest floors found here in the Pacific Northwest. I love it because it was reminding me of this new stage in my life, I’ve very recently moved and this was the smell that I would use to define this area. It is earthy, woody, crisp, and somehow very fresh. It is very chypre and rustic. This fragrance oil wears for hours. I mean all day without reapplying. I get complements on it all the time.
I’m trying to figure out other than timing, why do I associate this fragrance with this region so much? I looked it up and it is because, duh, oakmoss is the lichen that really takes a like’n to this area. Moss is all over the forest floors being crunched under your footsteps.
So, L’Aromarine is an intoxicating and very pleasant, high-quality parfum oil. I am so happy that my husband chose this fragrance for me. This is one fungi that I can’t live without.
UPDATE – This item has been discontinued. However, it looks like they have changed their name to “Outremer” and something like this is still available at Smallflower.
