    This is just lovely. For all those who want to know the difference between “HD” and the normal Z11, …the HD is the highest “preferred” amber ketal isomer of around 95%, where as normal Z11 only has about 30%.

    So what does that mean, and what does it smell like? I wouldn’t say this new HD is 3x stronger than the normal Z11 variety just because the isomer is that much higher, but its is ‘slightly’ stronger and easier to perceive in a blend. Comparing HD to the normal Z11 in terms of scent, there is a difference. HD is brighter, crisper, almost a touch drier. But what I found fascinating was HD has a slight sweetness under it all that’s missing from the normal Z11. Its almost the same slight sweetness one would find when comparing Ambroxan and Cetalox, where Cetalox has a subtle shade of sweet under the woody amber that lacks in normal Ambroxan. HD carries that very slight ambrox-like sweetness that isnt found in the normal Z11.

    Z11 HD is not your typical “SUPER woody amber” like Amber Xtreme/Ambrocinide. Z11 HD is more subtle and delicate/elegant in comparison, but very effective for an ‘enhancing type’ material in a dry-woody-amber-musky way. Its longevity will also outlast most musks, so plan accordingly.

    Also to note, its best to just get the 8.5% MIP version as sold here, as buying the raw powder form is difficult to work with and picky with what it will or will not dissolve in. For example….raw Z11 HD powder does not play well with DPG…even down to diluting it to 5% in DPG it still wants to crystalize and become a solid. I’ve found out the hard way, lol.

    Amber Ketal was also an important role in the Paco Rabanne 1 Million formula (around 0.8% of formula), so for those who cant get the raw amber ketal (Givaudan) powder, …Z11 HD is your next best thing.

    I don’t know why, but my nose does not register Z-11 HD at all–though I can smell regular Z-11 just fine, although weakly. Even though it has a higher percentage of the more desirable isomer, no matter which solvent I use for dilution (IPM, DPG, EtOH, BB, or a mixture of two or more of these) and doing the good old place-in-a-tube-and-smell-it-later training techinque, I can still not perceive even the smallest bit of this material. Needless to say, I do enjoy regular Z-11 so if I weren’t so mindboggling anosmic to HD, I believe I’d enjoy it just as much.
