As prolific of a creator as Dmitri Bortnikoff can be, he deserves equal credit for knowing when not to get in the way of his own exceptional ingredients. Moss Cologne is a perfect example- a showcase of gorgeous natural oakmoss absolute and its resin extracts that proudly exhibits oakmoss in all of its natural beauty, too rarely experienced in modern fragrance. Every other aspect of the scent, from the bright, invigorating citrus of the opening notes to the luxuriously smooth floral heart to the rich, robust base of balsamic woods, all exist to promote the vibrantly fresh, green, earthy character of the oakmoss and show how why it has been one of the most treasured base materials in the history of perfume. Here, it brightens and smooths citrus, adds lush and natural facets to florals, and makes the base feel simultaneously more rugged and refined. In short, it makes every aspect of the scent more complex and compelling while also making it work more effectively with every other aspect- a true miracle note. Effortlessly rich, delightfully sensual, Moss Cologne is the kind of straightforwardly elegant scent that only Bortnikoff seems to know how to make these days. We’re hooked.
