Clearwood is a wonderful product. I find it has that dry earthy wood feeling of patchouli without the sometimes sour/dirty/headshop connotations. Although not a replacement for a good patchouli, it is definitely a nice note to boost/deepen other woody materials. I think this will get used as much as Iso E and it’s ilk. This blends beautifully with other woody materials and adds warmth and an earthiness. Don’t hesitate to grab this.
It’s just as they describe it. Very transparent, clean and modern. Inoffensive. I can imagine this in deodorants and hair-gels and things like that. Long lasting. A good material to blend with florals too; it would blend seamlessly with a spicy rose for example, providing depth and fixation.
At this price, anyone could experiment quite freely with Clearwood and I’m sure have a lot of fun with it. In fact, you could probably use it to clean your floors with.

Festival-goer Hipster-Patchouli gets a job in the city.
Mr Patch whittled away his youth at festivals: he was bombastic, loud and idiosyncratic. And damp.
But how times have changed. Slightly ashamed of his rather sordid musical youth, Mr Patch got an expensive makeover. But this was no ordinary makeover, for Mr Patch was re-engineered from the ground up. Baggy, resinous chiffons were switched for starched cotton shirts and crisp navy suits; his unruly stubble was shaven clean to reveal a chiseled jawline.
Oh how everyone gossiped. “Who knew that Mr Patch could be sexy /and/ clean?” his old friends quipped. Some acquaintances preferred the more full-on vintage, but many others see this new man as far more compatible in a greater variety of situations.
An extremely versatile clean but tenacious and strong patchouli material that’s naturally produced albeit via biotechnology. A little goes a very long way but one can still overdose and create interesting earthy compositions
This Clearwood by Firmenich is simply awesome. I recently made a lavender and chamomile body lotion with a base of the clearwood and it turned out great. I didn’t want to muddy up the smell with patchouli. The scent of the clearwood was very nice as it dried down to a cozy, long woody patchouli-esque note. Don’t sleep on this — a definite keeper imo.
A clean modern patchouli note that those who dislike patchouli might actually enjoy. Very versatile and great to bring a soft woody patchouli note to more delicate compositions.
I couldn’t smell something until I applied it on my skin. I really love it
