Making sense of amber pack

Resinous ambers, ambergris and ambroxan
Notes amber ambergris ambroxan benzoin grisalva molecule labdanum

This pack will help you to make sense of the term "amber" in perfumery and smell different interpretations: from oriental resinous mixes to ambergris accords (replicating the smell of the whales' guts metabolite cured in salty water) and finally ambroxan and compounds that came after it.

All of these themes can be referred to as "amber" and there are common nuances that unite them (and cause confusion) but also there are noticable differences.

The pack contains 9 x 1 ml samples:

Oriental or resinous ambers:

    • Opus_1144 (UNUM)/ check for benzoin resin and classic oriental style
    • PG8.1 L’Ombre Fauve (Pierre Guillaume)/ check for labdanum and animalic style
    • 302 (Bon Parfumeur)/ a gourmand interpretation of  oriental amber

Ambergris (grey amber) interpretations:

    • Ambar del Sur (Carner)/ try for a carefully constructed grey amber accord
    • PG16.1 Bois Naufragé (Parfumerie Generale)/ try for salty sweet vibes
    • Muse (Rouge Bunny Rouge)/ try for salty musky vibes

Ambroxan and beyond:

    • Laskarina (Frapin)/ try for ambroxan
    • Still Life (Olfactive Studio) / try for ambroxan
    • Censored (Voronoi)/ try for Amber XtremeTM (IFF)

***

Some quick math: if purchased separately the total price for these 6 samples would be £26. This pack costs £20.  As part of the yearly subscription this theme would have been only around £12 (with no shipping cost and a 10% discount code for full size purchases). Whichever way you add it up, that’s a bargain.

Regular price £20.00
