Ambrette Essential Oil and Ambrette CO2 select extract

Ambrette Essential Oil and Ambrette CO2 select extract

Ambrette seeds are one of the few natural botanical materials which contain some of the compounds found in animal musk. The richness and beauty of this essential oil bestows upon compositions in which it is used a lift and unique radiant roundness.
The essential oil is a white to pale yellow liquid displaying a delicate, sweet, floral-musky bouquet with a leathery, dried fruity, slightly animalic woody undertone

Ambrette seed co2 select extract is clear to light yellow liquid soft balsamic, floral-musky bouquet with a soft, sweet fruity, animalic undertone

The overall bouquet of both is quite similar with the co2 extract maintaining a bit more of a rounded warm balsamic sweetness deep into the dryout than the essential oil which leans more towards a animalic, woody note

Another important factor in determining which to use in a composition is that co2 extracts tend not to be totally alcoholsoluble whereas the essential oil is alcohol soluble. CO2 extracts work best in oil bases

Both of the above work wonderfully in high class florals, musk bases, incense perfumes, sacred essences, precious woods notes, amber bases
