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.
• 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.
