Hyraceum 10% Tincture
Adam Michael has this to say “The aroma of this Hyraceum 10% in Ethanol Tincture is a complex animalic wonder that exudes a cocktail of musk, Cambodian oudh, civet, skunk, aged woods, dried tobacco leaves, hay and castoreum.
This material originates from the Rock Hyrax (Procavia capensis), a type of desert living rodent-like creature. Rock hyrax live in colonies, many of which have existed in the same regions for thousands of years. In these locations there is a build-up of semi-fossilised waste, by now fairly sterile, that can be mined and extracted whilst not causing any harm to the animals.
This material has good fixative value and is useful for building and developing tobacco accords, masculine chypres, marine notes, barbershop accords, vetiver accords, musk accords and leather bases whilst also being useful in trace amounts for increasing the longevity of white floral notes.”
This hyraceum tincture is produced from South African sourced material, tinctured in 96° ethanol and at the time of writing (14th January 2016) is nine months aged.
