This is supposed to be a “lifter”. Meaning you wont be using very large quantities of it. (Unless that suits you.) The name “Timbersilk” is quite appropriate since (even pure) it has a soft woody, smooth smell. To me it has a mild peppery top note and an oily bottom note that (to me) neither repels nor attracts. (it is quite mild too). This is a higher grade of Iso E Super.
This is meant as a supporting note. Not something you will easily detect in your blend. (Unless you pour it with wild abandon.) Very hard to imagine it damaging anything.
Since I only had a sample, I have yet to test it in a blend.
But believe me, I have smelled Iso Es that stink. This is smooth, refined stuff. If you know what you want it for, you cannot go wrong with this one.

Indispensable! I still need Iso E Super and don’t see Timbersilk as a replacement, but both have similar qualities. A perfumer I know had a GC of Chanel Sycomore and said that the fragrance was predominantly a 50/50 blend of vetiver oil and Timbersilk. So I have been experimenting with it in this way, using large quantities to dilute naturals like vetiver or sandalwood. Where Iso E Super is more abstract and transparent, I find Timbersilk has more of an association with cedarwood. I’ve had success mixing it with Ambermax, patchouli, cedarwood and a touch of my own amber accord, to create a dry woody background that can work with tobacco notes.

The other two reviews give excellent descriptions of Timbersilk so I won’t add to that – if you don’t have any, get some and play with it now.
Interesting little factoid: If you’ve ever tried to replicate escentric molecules molecule 01 and failed, wondering why, the reason was because molecule 01 is made of iso gamma super – the gamma isomer of iso e super. Timbersilk is largely comprised of iso gamma super. Try this! (To my knowledge Molecule 01 might be made of a captive, even purer grade of iso gamma super, but Timbersilk is as close as it gets with commercially available products.)

This is one of my absolute favorite products I’ve recently discovered, and the name says it all. It is indeed a woody/ambery scent, but quite subtle to my nose. I actually have a hard time smelling it sometimes, but then suddenly it will waft back to my nose and impart a wonderfully silky impression. In blends I find that it fades nicely into the background and imparts both depth and texture. I’ve been using it as a base for naturals, as was suggested by another reviewer. I find it especially luxurious and sensual when overdosed with a healthy portion of Guaiac Heart (Robertet) which is also available (and highly recommended) here on Perfumer Supply House. A must have for my palette!
