Sillage 6 + hours. Moena 12|69 is a highly concentrated scent. A bottle lasts a very long time.

Carta's premier offering, Moena 12|69, is the first ever fragrance to feature Moena Alcanfor, a rare essential oil steam-distilled from the lateral branches and leaves of Moena trees. The numbers correspond to the geographical coordinates from where the oil is sourced - the Tambopata Province of the Peruvian Amazon at 12° South, 69° West.

A close botanical relative to the highly endangered Rosewood (another Amazonian tree popular for fragrance), Moena Alcanfor is a new sustainable alternative. This oil is ushering in a promising future for the region’s delicate ecosystem. Its woodsy aroma ignites emotions, purifies and uplifts the spirit, and eases anxiety.

A portion of the proceeds from all Carta sales is returned to Camino Verde, the only organization in the world distilling Moena Alcanfor. Learn more about Camino Verde’s work to reforest the Peruvian Amazon HERE.
