Botanical perfumery

Base notes

Yakusugi oil is a light amber-coloured viscous oil with a delicate, floral, woody note with a sweet-resiny woody undertone.The scent does feature classic cedar notes, but not heavy, resinous, sharp or camphorous at all. Instead it presents a broad wood-aroma spectrum that is not obviously cedar, but something completely different. It overlaps slightly into some more sweet/floral İndonesia oud notes and the edges of aged Aetoxylon topnotes.
