Amber: a timeless fragrance

The origins of amber

Ambergris is a precious and mysterious ingredient used in perfumery for centuries. This natural, rare and expensive element is obtained in an astonishing way since it comes from… a species of whale, and more particularly from adult male sperm whales! It is formed from the accumulation of foreign matter in their intestine, such as pieces of octopus or cuttlefish. These are unable to be digested by the animal. When these materials accumulate, they are covered with a waxy substance called stercobilin. This substance solidifies and is eventually expelled from the animal as a floating mass.

With the liking of the waves, the wind and the sun, these masses take on silvery shades. They finally wash up and are often recovered on beaches in various parts of the world, including along the Atlantic coast of Africa and the islands of the Indian Ocean. Ambergris is rare and hard to find, which explains its high price in perfumery. To learn more about the history and origins of ambergris in perfumery, please see our dedicated article.

The use of ambergris in perfumery

Ambergris has been used in perfumery since antiquity. The Egyptians already used this ingredient in their fragrance compositions for its sweet and soft scent. The Romans used it to embalm the house, including their sheets and clothes. In the Middle Ages, ambergris became a real medicine that is worn around the neck in an amber apple. According to the beliefs of the time, it can treat various ailments such as headaches and convulsions. This ingredient is also prized by the clergy, to perfume the churches and places of worship.

Today, ambergris is an important component in the luxury perfume industry. It is used as a base note in many fragrances to bring a unique depth and warmth to the composition. Due to its rarity and high cost, ambergris is often replaced by synthetic alternatives in perfumery. But formulas containing real ambergris are still highly sought after.

Amber’s warm, sweet note can help reduce stress and anxiety. This makes it a popular choice for candles and home fragrances in spa salons and wellness centers.

The note of amber: candle and incense bewitching

When it comes to home fragrance, amber is often equated with a blend of different ingredients, rather than a full-blown ambergris absolute. Noses may opt for a blend of different essential oils to create what is called an amber note. They then assemble benzoin, labdanum, vanilla and sandalwood. Together, these ingredients create a warm, sweet and slightly woody scent that is reminiscent of the sweetness of vanilla and the warmth of the sun. Amber-based home fragrances can vary in intensity and complexity. Some may have a sweeter, vanilla-like scent, while others may be more woody and musky. However, most amber-based home fragrances have a smell that is described as warm, rich and sophisticated.
