    Ambre Aegyptus is the scent of Ancient Egypt. Weave a magical tale of Ancient Egypt into the fabric of your fragrances with this beautiful modern amber base. Constructed around a heart of intensely sweet vanilla tempered with exotic mandarin and crowned with rare herbs and precious oriental resins, this amber is a fragrant treasure. Dazzling white musks meld with the latest radiant wood molecules in perfect balance with luscious Mysore sandalwood, sweet patchouli and aged cedarwood. Jasmine absolute from the grand Nile Delta recalls the anointing of the king-gods as they were laid to rest in the gilded tombs of the ancient city of the dead: Abydos.

    Use Ambre Aegyptus alone in overdose as a more beautiful and interesting version of Ambre Sultan by Serge Lutens, or use it as the foundation of a magnificent modern oriental fragrance needing little more than a tweak in a novel direction. Usable at a whopping 26% of your finished product.

    “The only lamp of this lone hour
    Is glimmering in Zuleika's tower.
    Yes! there is light in that lone chamber,
    And o'er her silken Ottoman
    Are thrown the fragrant beads of amber,
    O'er which her fairy fingers ran; 
    Near these, with emerald rays beset,
    (How could she thus that gem forget?)
    Her mother's sainted amulet, 
    Whereon engraved the Koorsee text,
    Could smooth this life, and win the next;”
    — The Bride of Abydos, by Lord Byron, 1813.

    General Information

    Like most suppliers and makers of quality raw materials for fragrances, we do not filter many of our products. This ensures that no odiferous matter is lost prior to use but can result in the appearance of small particles or slight clouding.

    All alcoholic fragrances should be macerated for up to a month and then chilled in a moderate freezer overnight before being filtered fine. This will remove all cloudiness or detritus and is the industry norm.

    Permitted amounts in finished product:
