Synthetic molecule
Extraction method
The molecule is synthetically produced in laboratory using sclareol, a natural ingredient extracted from clary sage

Amber-like, musky, animal, woody.

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

Production

Ambrox is produced synthetically in the laboratory using sclareol, a natural ingredient extracted from clary sage. It is silky smooth and velvety—working as a divine base note and fixative.

History

Ambrox enabled perfumers to substitute the use of natural ambergris (secretions from sperm whales). The expensive synthetic product does not exist in nature. Today the molecule is essential to perfumery
