Style for her for him unisex

This pack is a perfect introduction to the use of benzoin resin in perfumes. Benzoin is one of the core ingredients in the classic amber accord, as well as a perfect companion for vanilla in woody compositions. Overall it gives a perfume a soft radiant, subtly powdery, vanillic, old books touch.

The pack includes a benzoin specimen (8% solution)*, a strip of Papier d’Armenie** 

* DISCLAIMER: the included sample of benzon resin is for smelling and educational purposes only. Do not put it onto your skin (please use a paper blotter), in your eyes or in your mouth.
