Specific notes on perfumery uses of individual essences in this category from Steffen Artanders Perfume and Flavor Materials of Natural Origin

Cade-"Its use in perfumery is limited to situations where a smoky-leathery, woody-phenolic, dry and warm note is called for: forest notes, leather-bases, fougeres, pine for "mens frangrances", etc"

Birch Tar- To the perfumer, the "heart" fraction of birch tar oil is the true and highly appreciated sweet and powerful "leather" odor for fougeres, chypres, "men's fragrances", after shave lotions, modern fantasy bases.

Amber oils crude-"men's colognes, after shaves
