Collection: Amber Collection

    Classical ambers in perfumery are bases typically built around resins such as labdanum and benzoin in combination with high quantities of vanilla, tonka beans and citrus oils. These are then accented with other materials to give a distinctive quality. In small amounts they offer sweetness and complexity to a dry down, in large doses they give character. The foundations of masterpieces in the oriental genre. To help you pick the best base for your needs, refer to the product comparison chart at the bottom of this page.
