    Created by a master perfumer at 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.

    Warning: This is a raw material for the manufacture of perfumes. Do not consume. Do not apply directly to skin. Keep out of reach of children.

    IFRA 49: 16.5% in finished product (Cat. 4)

    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 49: 16.5%

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

    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.

    Lovely complex and rich

    Sweet Seduction

    A sultry vanillic amber that makes demo formulas of modernized Jicky and Tabu addictive. (The classic Jicky reconstruction is beautiful as well.)

    Rich, nocturnal, resiney-vanilla

    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!
