    This is a glorious musk; deep, smooth and animalic in all the right places. It’s a lot more savoury than Ambrettolide, with a lovely leathery quality instead of fruity powder. For that reason, it seems easier to use and to dose, especially in floral compositions. I think this would work effortlessly with orientals and chypres too, as it adapts beautifully to the demands of other materials, giving richness, smoothness, and a subtle gamey interest.

    Sweeter, fruitier and more floral than Muscenone or Cosmone, even though it shares some of their dry powderiness. If those are more like Musk Ketone, this is a little more like Musk Ambrette, though with an added greasy animalic undertone.

    When I compared this side by side with Velvione I thought Ambretone opened a little stronger and clearer but Velvione lasted a little longer.

    It’s hard to say how crazy I am about this musk 🙂 It is wonderfully rich, sweet, smooth, and enveloping, but not cosmetic-clean. Like its name, it connotes an amber, woody character. The aroma is fairly heavy and diffusive, with mossy, papery, and dried apple-resinous undertones. I used this in an amber, wood, pine composition to give richness and mellow out terpenic topnotes.

    This is the original velvione – Takagasco made it and Givaudan copied it … poorly. This is a truly amazing musk full of beauty and elegance.

    I wear this on its own in a 20% solution alongside a marginal amount of Lavender, Iso E and Hedione for maximum diffusion w/ as minimal dose, particularly when I am leading design workshops that require me to be both approachable and engaging to the many colleagues who find my particular taste in fragrance intimidating on most days. That’s how complex, beautiful, and comforting this material is.

    One of the most rounded musks, unique, powdery, blends well with pretty everything, differentiate from the “white musks” but it’s easier to work with than the strongly animalic ones like L-Muscone.
