    Ambrexol features the addictive and subtly animalic sweetness of long aged wild ambergris. Once you smell this amazing product, you'll want to add it to everything.

    Ambrexol™ is a finer alternative for the old Fixateur® 404 product of Firmenich® which has now been replaced by an inferior dilution of racemic Cetalox® under the name of Fixateur 505. Previous iterations of Fixateur contained a very special quality of (-)-ambrox (called Ambrox classique) which is now effectively withdrawn from the market.

    Fraterworks Ambrexol™ pairs the nearest equivalent of ambrox classique with traces of supporting materials to replicate the original power and magical effect of Fixateur 404 with a truer scent of ambergris.

    Just a touch is all that's needed to turn any blend into a perfume.

    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: 26.45%
    IFRA 49: No restrictions

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

    Label Requirements

    Ingredients may need to be listed as per your local legislation based on data found in the EU allergens report.

    Additional Requirements

    No additional labelling requirements.

    For Trade Use Only

    Our products are intended as building blocks in the perfume creation process; they are not to be applied to the skin undiluted.

    These raw materials are for use by the perfumery trade only.

    Stability of fragrance compounds and natural oils over time

    I like the smell on the back of my hand, it seems to be a little more complete than the first fixateur 10 percent that I bought 30 years ago, I still have several ounces of original and it is still usable along with a dozen other fragrance compounds and natural oils like benzoin, patchouli ,labdanum,frankincense and east indian sandalwood oil that still smell good.
