Ambery notes are a subcategory of the vast oriental family.
The word "amber" in perfumery does not come from amber stone, as one might think, but from grey amber (ambre gris in French). Originally, this raw material was of animal origin, but thankfully, as a vegan company, we are pleased to report it is no longer used in perfumery.
Many other, animal-friendly molecules are now used to mimic this incredibly rich, soft, warm effect. In fact, because of this change in material, ambery notes now gradually open up to lighter and more woody inflections.
You’ll find that ambery notes are most often used in men's perfumery. For example, in our Ambery Mint (inspired by Versace’s Eros) or our Ambery Cranberry (inspired by Ralph Lauren’s Polo Red)
