Special notes from Perfume and Flavor Materials of Natural Origin by Steffen Arctander

cistus "used in modern aldehydic or ambre types of perfumes, in Oriental bases and in numerous fantasy bouquets where it will lend tenacity, warm tonalities and an intriguingly spicy-animal note...Its great solublity makes it interesting for colognes where it blends extremely well with citrus oils, sage clary and oakmoss products."

labdanum absolute from concrete " is used extensively in perfumery, partly as an excellent fixative, partly to introduce a rich , suave sweetness, a natural undertone, which blends well with citrus colognes, lavender colognes, all kinds of oriental bases, chpres, ambre bases, pine and forest blends..."

frankincense/olbinaum absolute is "used as a fixative with its distinct lemony-green, dry, fresh-balsamic note as a special effect. In combination with spice oils, particulary high grade cinnamon bark oil, olibanum absolute creates quite surprising complexes. A typically "powdery"-effect in fragrance is obtained with combinations of olibanum, cinnamon bark, cinnamic alcohol, nitromusks, and coumarin or courmarin derivatives...A truly "Oriental" note can be created basically with sandalwood oil, vetiver oil, olibanum absolute and cinnamon bark oil for further perfumery work."

frankincense/olibanum oil is "used in fine perfumery for the notes described above in the monograph on olibanum absolute. It gives delightful effect in citrus colognes where it modifies the sweetness of bergamot and orange oils. A similar effect is obtained in the rather difficult "fresh" perfume notes such as verbena, citrus, etc where olibanum and citral form useful bases for further modifying work...
