Description

This listing is for the oil of Hyraceum prepared with the dark Hyraceum stone that you will find in the shop. It has a beautiful deep fragrance profile with sweet dry notes of Deer Musk, aged cognac, soft leather and sweet blonde tobacco.

It opens with heavy, sweet Indolic notes reminiscent of the heart of Jasmine and quickly dries down to reveal a soft Deer Musk character. My guess is that it would blend well with florals as well as oriental and Amber type perfume compositions. . All in all it has a very pleasing deep, rich and smooth fragrance profile.
It contains the equivalent of two batches of Hyraceum tincture and is a little dearer for this reason but I believe it is well worth the extra few dollars. It is the closest natural aromatic to Deer musk I have yet to smell.

This is a unique item and as far as I can tell, is available nowhere else. It took a few months to perfect a system of transferring the characteristic Hyraceum aroma to the oil. I will share the process at some point on the blog. If enough people are interested…

Hyraceum AKA African Stone or Dassie is traditional medicine and perfume ingredient.

Explaining exactly what Hyraceum is is always fun.
To be succinct, Hyraceum is the mineralized urine and feces of the Rock Hyrax which is the only other animal related to the elephant. (Even though it looks more like a Groundhog and doesn’t have a long nose.)

Rock Hyrax communities deposit their excrement in the same place for thousands of years. These smelly aggregates are called middens and also serve the function of social and territorial markers. These middens can be as old as 50.000 years.
Rock Hyrax are most often found basking on warm rocks in sunshiny places from South Africa all the way to Israel and Lebanon.

In traditional African medicine, the stone has been used as a remedy for epilepsy.

Hyraceum is better known for its use in perfumery where it can deliver notes of leather, Deer Musk, Civet, Castoreum and Cade.

Since I am always learning, I can now say that the light-coloured stone is found on the rock walls above the black Hyraceum. As the centuries go by and this liquid makes its way to the ground, it builds up layers of mineralized material often forming stalactites that have developed their own scent profile distinct from the black deposits that form on the ground.

You can purchase dark Hyraceum stone in the shop and make your own tincture or oil. I use a 1:9 ratio of stone to 95% alcohol, powder it finely and let it macerate for one year. Here is the listing-https://www.etsy.com/listing/811622815/hyraceum-stone-musk-africa-stone-dassie

    I love these animalic oils and was hoping Dan would make an oil out of hyrax eventually/somehow. This smells fantastic! A little leathery with high notes that remind me a bit of elemi actually. I’m not sure that I smells much like deer musk (I have some grains of that). I only wish this one was five times stronger! It dies down to nothing pretty quickly. Maybe it would get stronger if the right things were added to it?

    Interestingly, my cat was across the room when I came in with just a small dab on my wrist…and he suddenly starting sniffing the room. He came over to me and started licking the spot I applied it to! Haha! I moved my arm away in case it’s not good for him, but very interesting!

    I like putting these oils on by themselves as musks. I’m hoping Dan eventually makes ones of muskrat, costus, and/or onycha haha.
