Created by the master perfumer Agatstein for Chuit Naef & Cie in its earliest days, Opoponax 216 differs from Opoponax Doux in that it has a more intense vanilla note and subdued woods. It was favoured by the early Guerlain perfumers and featured in the original Jicky of 1889 with a wonderful overdose of Mysore sandalwood. It was also the key amber of Arpège by Lanvin.
Usable at up to 16.6% for IFRA compliance, this is a very versatile and luscious base, rich with all the usual resins and luxurious naturals such as aged patchouli and Mysore sandalwood.

Beautiful base that is easy to see as the nucleus around with a lot of classic ambery scents rotated. Also--seeing it in the Jicky formula above was super instructive! I've tried many times to explore different amateur formulas, and using the base in it as above, it definitely clicked more than any other iteration I've tried to make!
