    I have been waiting for this material, knowing from its description that it would help with my current “midnight forest/unpaved road” fragrance. Undiluted, it is absolutely wonderful – DO NOT confuse with Peru balsam, etc. I find the pine/spice predominant in the undiluted version. Diluted at 20%, the note is more balsamic and softer. I do not detect the leather or animal in either version. According to Good Scents, the longevity of this material is 400 hours. I think I will use more of it than originally calculated, but it will be worth it.

    High quality gurjun balsam. I’ve used others and this has a more distinct odor that is useful apart from its fixative and vaguely peppery effect. It resembles the woody aspect of black pepper and is dry-woody in a spicy-cedar direction, except it doesn’t really evoke cedar specifically – it’s less smooth. On its own it seems a bit spendy considering its modest power but it is a useful material in certain contexts and has unique woody-spicy-spiky qualities and it lasts. It’s growing on me.

    I’ve always like this material, which I think is underrated. I have others, but this one is lovely!

    Smells just like the drawers of tge ponderous stereo cabinet my father had built in Manila in 1966. If you were working on something more guitar-box than cigar-box, this would be helpful.

    As others have said, this is more fragrant than most other Gurjun on the market and, for me, is the best I’ve found.
