Quotes on perfumery uses are taken from S. Arctander-Perfume and Flavors of Natural Origin
"Abies alba oil find application in perfumes for bath preparations, air-freshners, disinfectants, fougere-colognes, soap perfumes, detergents, etc...Although the oil belongs to the group of 'low-ester' and 'high-terpene' containing 'fir' and spruce needle oils, it has great power, good stability and performance in compositions for the above purposes"

"Oil of Abies balsamea serve as a 'pine-and-spruce' fragrance in fresh-balsamic 'fir needle'blends, Christmas tree odors, fougeres, air refreshners, disinfectants, household cleaners, etc"

Fir Needle, Siberian- "The particular odor and aldehydic topnote of this oil makes it an interesting material for 'unconventional' perfumery"

Red Spruce is "used along with other pine, spruce or so-called 'fir" needle oils in air-freshners, room deodorants, batch oils, soap perfumes, fougere bases, etc and as a modifier in colognes, chypres, etc"

Mountain Pine is use for " room spray perfumes, batch preparations, Christmas fragrances, 'leather type baes, etc"

Black Spruce "is used extensively in the USA for room spray perfumes, bath preparions, air refreshners, disintectants, in liquid detergents, cleansers, and other household products, etc. and it finds natural application in 'pine' fragrances, not only becouse of the previous shortage of 'true' Siberian pine needle oil, but also because of the excellent individual performance of spruce oil in 'fresh' perfume types."
