    Z11 (Ambraketal) was initially sold only as part of Firmenich's Fixobois base and so it found early use in fragrances like Chanel No 19. In time the material itself became available as a 10% dilution owing to its high strength. That is Z11 10 MIP. 

    In recent years a new product emerged which is the so called HD or "high definition" version which is sold as both an 8.5% dilution (Z11 8.5 HD) and pure. It is in that pure crystalline form that it found its way in to the popular fragrance One Million by Paco Rabanne. 

    The two products are very similar but the classic Z11 retains its supremacy in terms of sheer beauty and Firmenich keep the pure form captive. To compare the two in furniture making terms, Z11 8.5 HD is like a steel nail holding a door together — intense and penetrating, while Z11 10 MIP is like a wooden peg or a dovetail joint in an antique armoire. They both do the same job (holding two pieces of timber together) but the second has heritage, prestige and elegance.

    Z11 10 MIP is the Fraterworks choice for this material as it is simply the most beautiful and far better suited to quality fragrances that rely on purest radiant elegance over intensity and short-lived dazzle.

    Z11 10 MIP is ambery, woody and dry and has an astonishing trigeminal effect which causes intense psychological pleasure in those who smell it.

    Appearance: Colourless liquid
    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.
