Givaudan Description: Ambrettolide is a macrocyclic musk which has exceptional diffusion and a very fine character. It is unique in that its influence in a composition can be perceived at all evaporation levels. It is a superb fixative and highly substantive, and yet exalts the top note of a fragrance in an exceptional manner.

    Exceptional Musk. Fruity and slightly powdery. I like to combine it with woody Ambers (Ambermax, Karanal, Ambrocenide) for some really nice effects.

    Ambrettolide is one of the most useful, powerful and complete musks available to the perfumer today. I find it combines very well with traces of velvione for a backdrop to white floral notes. Very substantive, and has a rich sweet character that lends itself to both male and female perfumes.

    I have almost no experience with musks (yet), but I like this one a lot. It stays on the skin, even when almost all other fragrant molecules have already evaporated and leaves a warm, pleasant smell. Unfortunately, I have a very hard time describing the odor of macrocyclic musks in general.

    In some time of its evaporation it shares certain characteristics with natural ambrette seed and galaxolide but much more powerful and notorious, this musk is clean, like a garment with some trace of warm sweat of the skin, in strip of smell takes three days and it’s soft, good raw material.

    Rich, seedy, and transformative. This really polishes herbal and earthy materials like clary sage, chamomile, and patchouli. It refines their own muskiness and fruitiness and soothes agrestic aggression.

    First time I got this, it has a deep powdery, ambrette like musky note. A little bit earthy in a way, fruity peach, pear, rosy, litch. Very lovely aroma.

    The product in the bottle I received today barely smells like anything distinctive, just the carrier oil with a very faint hint of ambrettolide. Really disappointing.
