Cashmeran is a synethic compound that is used in modern perfume production, most commonly as a base note.

What it Smells Like

This is a complex, nuanced, voluptuous fragrance compound that includes spicy, fruity, chypre (woody), balsamic, vanilla and floral notes. It is strongly aromatic and is generally used as a base note, to add depth and sensuality to perfume compositions.
