    Ambretone® is more famously known as Velvione® by Givaudan but what most perfumers don't know is that Ambretone came first and is superior to Velvione®. In all cases you should dispose of Velvione and use Ambretone® exclusively. While Velvione® is pure Cyclohexadecen-5-one, Velvione also contains some Cyclohexadecen-6-one which diminishes its beauty and power.

    Ambretone® is a macrocyclic musk that behaves similarly to dextro-Muscenone (the captive pure form of Muscenone) and finds applications in very much the same areas. Ambretone®, however, is less animalic and has nuances of ambrette seed. A particular radiance occurs when blending Ambretone with genuine Hedione®.

    Ambretone® makes up fully 8.5% of Carnal Flower by Frederic Malle.

    Ambretone® is also closely related to the cheaper Globanone (Cyclohexadec-8-en-1-one), which is slightly less animal and, in my opinion, less elegant.

    This product is often solid at room temperature and requires a slight amount of warming to liquify.

    Appearance: Translucent white solid
    Longevity: Lasts > 400 hours on a smelling strip.

    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.

    IFRA Standards

    Permitted amounts in finished product:

    IFRA 51: 100%
    IFRA 49: 100%

    These are derived from calculated concentrations which do not replace chromatographic quantification on individual lots. Disclaimer...
