Infusion

Ambergris

Botanical Name : None

Country of Origin : Pacific Ocean

Olfactive Family : Ambery

Harvester : Le Sourceur

Harvested Part : Animal concretion

Main application : Perfumery

Ambergris infusion is concocted according to the traditional processes of perfumery. The pieces or blocks of organic matter are used to reduce them to the smallest possible size and to facilitate the infusion in alcohol. The more the amber infuses the more it improves.

For its manufacture, we have chosen the most beautiful pieces of our collection in order to obtain a true elixir. When the standards are three to six months of infusion, ours will have taken 9 months to be born.

Infusion of Ambergris is titrated at 5%. It is rather black in color, emphasizing more animal notes than the white often lighter and marine. We make only one manufacture per year, each of them is therefore vintage and unique although we always use the same category of amber.

Perfumery

OLFACTORY DESCRIPTION

Holy Grail among all fragrant raw materials, Ambergris is among the rarest and most precious ingredients in history.

Nowadays, the “amber note” is mostly determined by substitute accords, synthetic or not. Thus, discovering the true origin of this fundamental pillar of perfumery is a miracle : authentic Ambergris concentrates all the subtleties of this mythical note that perfumers have so often tried to approach.

Iodized, balmy, vanilla, musky, floral, woody, finely smoked, animal and crystalline… The panorama created by this fragrance is at the height of sensuality and lasts indefinitely until it perfectly matches the skin that wears it.

IN PERFUMES

Note :

• Heart
• Base

Associations :

Jasmine / Tuberose : for Oriental accord
• Integrates perfectly into many compositions by being an excellent fixative

Perfumer’s detail :

This material is rare today because very often imitated/substituted by the synthesis. This replacement also occurs because the houses of perfume can show frightened in front of materials resulting from the animal. It should be noted that ambergris is collected on the Pacific coast, it is a natural secretion and no interaction with sperm whales is necessary for this.
