Ambrox is used in perfumery as a base note. The molecule permits extending the trail, while adding incomparable smoothness and sensuality. It has a very complex fragrance with musky, woody, almost animal tones. For some, it recalls the skin, for others, it recalls the amber-like character of labdanum, or clary sage
Nathalie Lorson creates for Le Labo, in collaboration with AnOther Magazine, a perfume of ambergris, musky, addictive with its animal inflections, around twelve other ingredients, including jasmine, moss and ambrette.
