Perfumer's Notes

Ambrettolide (musk a) is a synthetic musk that is a close analog of a musk note that occurs naturally in ambrette seed oil. Musk raw materials are excellent fixatives that refine and smooth a fragrance. Resembling the scent of clean, warm skin, musk notes give balance, sensuality and depth to a fragrance. A little bit goes a long way, use sparingly.

In early perfumery, musk was a raw material derived from an animal. This has been banned since the 1970s, today perfumers use natural and synthetic materials that mimic traditional musks.
