Ambergris Botanical Melange(Blend)

 Ambergris Melange(Botanical) has been created for us using ambrette seed absolute, oakmoss absolute, labdanum absolute, clarys sage essential oil, nagarmotha and several other natural essences. It is a amber colored liquid displaying a warm, suave, powdery, sweet, resinous-balsamic bouquet of a delicate marine, mossy  undertone of excellent tenacity.

In natural perfumery it is a prized fixative in delicate florals, musk bases, amber accords, herbal accords, forest notes, Oriental perfumes


In perfumery terminology the words "amber" and "ambergris" are often confused. Both are, in fact, terms which are almost always used for perfumery "notes" rather then a product extracted or distilled from amber resin or from ambergris which is produced from sperm whales. That is to say, they are blends of different essences, both natural and synthetic, to create products which are, in a general way, associated with the words  "amber" and "ambergris".

Of the two, amber essence is, by far, the more well known of the two. In natural perfumery it can be as simple a combination as vanilla absolute/co2, ambrette seed eo/co2/absolute and labdanum or more complex blends which include benzoin, frankincense, myrrh, tonka bean, patchouli, etc. Its basic olfactory qu alities are deep, sweet,  musky, resinous. True extracts and distillations of amber resin do exist but tend to be dominated by smoky, phenolic notes with an faint sweet resinous undertone.

Ambergris, on the other hand, is now almost entirely produced as blends of synthetic isolates which are thought to mimic the aroma of ambergris produced by sperm whales. Those products are  "interpretations" of the aroma of true ambergris as the genuine product is highly variable. In general a fine quality genuine ambergris tincture is said to contain these olfactory properties-

"Its odor is rather subtle, reminiscent of seaweed, wood, moss. with a peculiar sweet, yet very dry undertone of unequaled tenacity. There is rarely any animal note at all in a good grade of Ambra(Ambergris)"- Steffen Arctander

Fine ambergris accords can be created using totally natural materials which may include labdanum, sage clary, agarwood, seaweed abs, ambrette seed, cedarwood, oakmoss etc.
